    Unfortunately I don't even know who I took this tour from, I think chipmunks, but I modified them a bit.
    The Orensfels was added to the 4 castles.
    The tour starts in Gleisweiler and leads along forest paths with a steady incline to Orensfels with a great view over the Palatinate Forest. From there it continues to the Neu Scharfeneck castle ruins, which are well secured and cannot be entered at the moment.After the descent it goes through Ramberg and from there over a solid single trail, which was just cut free after the wind broke, up to the ruins of Ramburg, which is in perfect condition.On the same single trail it goes back and then up again to the packed parking lot Drei Buchen and there to the ruin Meistersel, which is also closed off as a construction site, but the same is rather half-hearted and therefore not only I walked on the walls where the most fuses are already installed.A wonderful single trail then leads down to the Modenbach car park and from there via an old forest path that mutates into a hollow path and then into an obstacle course, up to the Frankenburg, a rock on which you can only see the purpose as a guard or with just a few traces of processing Weir structure can guess.Again it goes down the same path to then tackle the final climb to the Trifelsblickhütte, where numerous people had already gathered for the sunset over the Trifels.For me it went from here down over a long single trail to Gleisweiler back to the starting point.

    Nice and long lap. I've been to the area so many times!
    About 25 times at the Trifelsblickhütte alone.
    Only not at the Meistersel ruin. It was a construction site for years. Nice that it can be visited again.

    Great tour and good to know that the Meistersel can be visited again. Was there the last time in 2010, it's time again.
