Day two in the Palatinate Forest.We completed the bear climb on Saturday.Fantastic views, varied landscapes and attractive viewpoints characterize the new premium hiking trail "Bären-Steig" near Bruchweiler-Bärenbach.From the car park at the forest cemetery it goes up to the rock of the shoe. After a rest on the Jüngstberg plateau, a great panorama awaits on the Jüngstbergkanzel. A path leads down the Jüngstberg ridge to the Bundenthaler Jagdhütte. From there you reach the Drachenfelshütte of the Palatinate Forest Association at the foot of the Heidenberg. Freshly strengthened, the climb to the Drachenfels castle ruins is easy. An extensive exploration of the striking rock castle is worthwhile. After a passage through the idyllic side valley of Staubborn, a path leads up to the geologically interesting rock massif Geierstein. From there it goes down over the Lourdessteig, back to the starting point.Attention: the upper castle of the Drachenfels castle ruins near Busenberg is now open again. So you can enjoy the wonderful view from the Drachenfels again. Most of the castle is open to visitors again.Only the eastern upper castle is still closed for security reasons and part of the western lower castle.Attractions: Schuhfels, Schlüsselfelsen, Drachenfels castle ruins, Jüngstberg, Geierstein, Buchkammerfels, Heidenberg.
