Stage 3 begins in a tranquil and peaceful manner on the Schmidtburg nature campsite. Remember to bring your breakfast with you, because there are hardly any shops in the surrounding area. Before you start hungry, you can include a detour in the nearby Bundenbach in your tour, there is at least a baker there. In any case, a good breakfast cannot hurt, because the stage starts with a longer climb. From the idyllic Hahnenbach valley you drive up to the forested mountain ridge of the Soonwald in the northeast of the Hunsrück. With the Teufelsfeld, the Blickenstein and the Katzenstein, three interesting rock formations and impressive vantage points await you here, so that the day starts impressively.A nice descent leads you down to Gemünden, where you will finally find a few shops - here you can replenish your supplies or treat yourself to a (second) breakfast. Then it becomes calm and idyllic again. In the middle of the Soonwald and through various nature reserves, you head for Stromberg, a small town on the edge of the Hunsrück, which is particularly known to bikers for its flow trail. That's exactly what you're heading for. If you like and still have enough time, you can take a small, marked tour here. It is around six kilometers long, so it doesn't take too much time.Then the last 15 kilometers of your tour through the Hunsrück await you. The last few kilometers down to Bingen are another real highlight: a wonderfully flowing descent awaits you, which spits you out to the perfect view of the Rhine almost directly in front of the train station in Bingen. The perfect end to a perfect weekend. From here you can start your return journey home or to the starting point of the tour in Sankt Wendel.
