    Transition over the Celtic ring wall. A powerful complex and on top of that a great view into the distance. Beyond the walls information panels on the construction phases and construction.
    Impressive. Of course, the stair does not meet today's requirements, so bring a little surefootedness

    In 1837, the Prussian Crown Prince and later King Frederick William IV (1795-1861), brother of the later Kaiser Wilhelm I, personally appeared to examine the "Hunnenring". As a result, the plant gained importance and prevented further destruction by erosion as a building material.
    So that the Crown Prince could safely view the wall, the stone staircase was created.

    An impressive stone staircase and more accessible than the other

    A great view, but also a shaky affair

    Overwhelming and immediately astonished what it must have been like for such an achievement to have built such a huge ring at this time. Great view from the top. Perfect to extend the tour around the Nonnweiler dam.

    The second possibility to commit the Celtic rampart.
    The "Steinerne Treppe" further to the west (the pictures are unfortunately out of place here) was built in 1837 for the Prussian Crown Prince in the defense structure, so that he could climb the ramparts without danger.
    The need to notice, as the route over the eastern part of the ring wall chooses, which consists of loosely piled Wacken, which are still tipping and must be celebrated with caution and sturdy shoes. Only in a few places has a little vegetation found support and over time some humus accumulated to make the stones easier to walk on.

    The Celts must have had a lot of time and enormous boredom - or a lot of enemies against which they had to defend themselves. In any case, this wall consists of an incredibly large amount of stones and you should actually have stood at the top.
    If you like, you can hike along the wall, but this is sometimes a little more difficult because the stones only lie more or less loosely on one another. If you don't want to, do it like us and go up the stairs on one side and down on the other side ...

    This point on the ring wall is specially intended as a crossing aid, the premium hiking trail Dollbergschleife also uses it.

    The Celtic ring wall ("Hunnenring") is definitely an experience. History, explained using information boards, great atmosphere, great views of the Hunsrück.

    Dangerous stairs in rainy weather

    Standing all alone on the stone wall in the middle of July is a sublime feeling.
    Impressive what people are capable of.
