    Plenty of hedges, but not absolutely necessary. High conductor posts can be bypassed.

    Suitable for normal walkers and children. Solid shoes are recommended. From Oberwesel after the trail there is a viewing and picnic area.

    The Oelsbergsteig is an easy alpine hiking trail that belongs to the Rhein-Burgen-Weg. There are several variations in this section between Oberwesel and St Goar to hike along the Rhein-Burgen-Weg. For the Oelsbergsteig, surefootedness and height suitability is a prerequisite for enjoying the route.

    The trail is well secured, including iron treads over steeper terrain. You should have a certain condition. If you want to avoid the 2 ladders, you can easily do that.

    Nice little via ferrata also feasible for inexperienced. Sturdy shoes should already be.
    View is just fantastic.

    Nice tour on the slopes of the Middle Rhine Valley between vineyards and fruit trees. The via ferrata is also for inexperienced hikers with sturdy shoes to master. There is a low to medium risk of dizziness.

    The via ferrata is provided with safety ropes. The metal steps over rocks are rather physically demanding.

    Nice climbing, but in the most of which can be bypassed.

    Exciting part of the round with beautiful views over the Rhine Valley.
    With a four-legged friend it is nice to see how off-road the fur nose is. It will be a lot of fun for most dogs.

    Oelsbergsteig closed due to the risk of falling rocks!SWR message from May 23, 2020:
    The via ferrata "Oelsbergsteig" in Urbar in the Rhein-Hunsrück district has been closed due to the risk of falling rocks. According to a geologist from the State Office for Geology and Mining, slate boulders weighing up to several hundred kilograms could come loose there. The via ferrata on the Middle Rhine has been under regular surveillance for years, said the mayor of Urbar, Heinz Link. Last winter there were shifts of about 15 centimeters. Initially, only part of the climb was closed, signs indicated the danger of falling rocks, there were barriers. These were repeatedly destroyed by unknowns, which is why the Oelsbergsteig between Urbar and Oberwesel is now no longer accessible.

    Ropes as handrails and irons as climbing aids and improvised steps allow you to try your own climbing skills. Some kicks have to be considered, so as not to knot the legs. Overall, but safe and little dizziness.
