Etappe 6: Von Merzalben über den Weißenberg nach Hauenstein – Pfälzer Waldpfad
komoot planned a hike.
January 16, 2018
The short fifth stage is now followed by the queen stage of the Pfälzer Waldweg. Not only do you expect a distance of 23 kilometers and a climb of more than 500 vertical meters, you also climb to the Weißenberg. At 607 meters, this is the highest point of the entire hike.It is best to start early, so you have enough time to visit the castle ruins of Gräfenstein, which is on your today's stage. In addition to the view from the keep of the castle, there are two more beautiful lookout points along the way today. Even the Winschertfels offers you a perfect panorama, but the Luitpold Tower on the Weißenberg is the absolute classic for long-distance views over the Palatinate Forest.After more than 15 kilometers you reach the small town Hersbergerhof. Here you have earned your rest at the Café Ingrid, before you go on the last hiking section to the stage destination Hauenstein.
