    Spectacular rocks, deeply cut valleys and above all: forest, as far as the eye can see! This awaits us on the 140 kilometer long Pfälzer Waldpfad.Stage 1: From Kaiserslautern to Finsterbrunnertal
    From Kaiserslautern, the first stage of the Pfälzer Waldpfad takes us on a route of just under 16 km through beautiful forests to the promising Humberg tower and further into the valley of the Moosalbe, where we reach our destination at the Naturfreundehaus Finsterbrunnertal.
    Stage 2: From Finsterbrunnertal to Johanniskreuz
    The second stage, with a length of 12 km, is the shortest of the Pfälzer Waldpfad. It leads us along the Moosalbe u.a. through the Karlstal gorge up to the 470 m high hamlet Johanniskreuz.
    Stage 3: From Johanniskreuz to Heltersberg
    On the third stage of the Pfälzer Waldpfad we hike from Johanniskreuz through dense forests to Heltersberg. On the way we pass some stream valleys and idyllic little ponds.
    Stage 4: From Heltersberg to Rodalben
    Passing the imposing Soul Rock, the fourth stage takes us to the remains of the Roman Heidelsburg, before we reach the place of pilgrimage Maria Rosenberg and finally our destination Rodalben.
    Stage 5: From Rodalben to Merzalben
    From the Hilschberghaus, the fifth stage of the Pfälzer Waldpfad takes us a good 10 km past Rodalben to the Birkwieserhof and on to our destination Merzalben in the valley of the Merzalbe.
    Stage 6: From Merzalben to Hauenstein
    On the sixth stage, at 23 km, not only the longest distance of all stages must be covered, but with the 607 m high Weißenberg also the highest point of the Pfälzer Waldpfad should be climbed. For this we are rewarded with breathtaking views.
    Stage 7: From Hauenstein to Dahn
    The seventh stage takes us from the Schuhdorf Hauenstein to the "capital" of the Dahner Felsenland, which is known for its many red sandstone rock towers and walls. Shortly before the end of the stage lies with the Jungfernsprung one of the most famous rocks of the Palatinate on our route.
    Stage 8: From Dahn to Erlenbach
    On the eighth stage from Dahn to Erlenbach we not only pass some impressive rock formations, but also the ruins of the castles Altdahn, Grafendahn, Tanstein and Drachenfels, built on red rock massifs.
    Stage 9: From Erlenbach to Schweigen-Rechtenbach
    From Erlenbach, the last leg takes us past the mighty Berwartstein Castle to Schweigen, the southernmost town on the German Wine Route. We enter Alsace for a few kilometers and have a great view over the Rhine plain to the Black Forest.

  • Die mit den Eichen tanzt

    I'm on the forest path with Klein's hiking trips. Very nice without luggage and sometimes with pick up through the hotel. Fantastic forest paths and luckily only rarely through places or in the blazing sun.
