Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The small, nested little houses crowd the Ellerbach, which flows into the river Nahe at this point, making it a unique sight. In some places, the development even crosses the canal. In earlier times, the Ellerbach served as a sewer for local craftsmen such as tanners and butchers as well as the adjacent households. Today, he carries with Klein-Venedig on Ellerbach a historic row of houses, which blends harmoniously into the overall picture of Bad Kreuznach Neustadt and provides visitors with a romantic photo opportunity.
A rustic part of Kreuznacher Neustadt.
Yes, Neustadt. The old town on the other side of the Nahe was completely destroyed during the war. That's why the newer part of Kreuznachs looks older than the old one, which was completely rebuilt. Confusing? Well, everybody could easily!
In small Venice, the Ellerbach flows on the last few meters to the mouth in the Nahe in a narrow channel.
