    Off to the jungle! This eight kilometer circular hike shows you why the forest in the Steinbach and Netzbach valleys is so wonderfully original and wild. You can explore the protected area on beautiful hiking trails and observe how nature develops when humans can make it easy. The starting point of the jungle tour is at the Forsthaus Neuhaus, north of Saarbrücken.You walk right past the wash fountain into the Steinbach valley. On your way you will explore the forest, discover babbling brooks, small forest lakes, uprooted trees and marshy swamps. Foresters have not intervened in the forest's ecosystem since 2002 and have given nature their freedom. So it may well be that you have to climb over a fallen tree - primeval forest. Wooden bridges help you cross the swampy sections of dry feet.The highlight - in the truest sense of the word - is the little Fuji. A wooden staircase makes it easier for you to climb up, from above you have a beautiful view of the Steinbach valley. In the nearby Naturfreundehaus Kirschheck you can take a break and strengthen yourself. The path leads you past a Friedwald before you cross the Steinbach again. Enjoy the last kilometers through this beautiful forest until you reach your starting point again.How about a special extra for your jungle tour? There are several so-called dangling stations along the route. They are designed to unpack the hammock and simply hang out in a relaxed manner. So the jungle can be enjoyed even more intensely. Here you can find out where you can borrow the hammocks:
