Pfalz planned a hike.
August 19, 2017
At that time, a long, long time ago, the famous King Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned in the castle of Trifels. The castle was then one of the most important festivals in the country and is still one of the great landmarks of the Palatinate. At that time, in addition to the prisoners, the imperial insignia was kept in the fortress, which was said to be impregnable.From this hike you often have a wonderful view of the iconic castle, which was built in harmony with the natural environment, on a mighty rock. An absolute masterpiece!The path leads you to an important place for the climbing scene of the Palatinate, the Asselstein. The huge sandstone block has been a challenge for several generations of Kraxlern, who used the cracks and edges in the rock to reach the top. At the foot of the Asselstein, you will find the best Palatinate home cooking in the Klettererhütte, before continuing on to the Rehberg Tower and the spring below. From the tower you have, you can safely imagine, a breathtaking panoramic view over the Palatinate Forest and its rock towers. Then it goes downhill constantly, down to Annweiler, where you can use a Kneipp facility in a beautiful little park to relax your flat-footed.
