    The name says it all on this 10 kilometer circular hike: The Schauinslandweg takes you to beautiful viewpoints and through a wonderful landscape. You walk past lush meadows, shady mixed forests and fragrant orchards. And of course there is a lot of Saarland to look over.The starting point of the tour is at the Fischweiher Randsbach a little south of Ottweiler. You leave the idyllic bank of the pond and hike slightly uphill to Steinbacher Berg. The path leads you across an open landscape and you enjoy a beautiful view into the distance. Then it goes down a forest path into the Kerbacher valley.You hike steadily uphill along the banks of the stream. Enjoy the calm and the cool air in the small valley. You will soon reach a nice grill hut with seating. How about a break here before you tackle the next leg of the climb? From the Betzenhübel, with its 427 meters the highest point of the hike, you have a great view of the surrounding region. The view from the panorama tower is even better. It is worth climbing the 120 steps: from above you have a wonderful panoramic view of the Saarland.You walk a little bit further on the plateau before you descend and soon stand again on the banks of the fish pond in Randsbach. On weekends you can stop at the Hiems hiking hut shortly before the end of the tour. Or you run a few meters further and enjoy it in the "Waldhotel Garni".
