    The ninth leg of the Rheinburgenweg begins in Bad Salzig. After leaving the town, the trail leads you on forest trails up to the lookout point 'Praying Nun'. A medieval legend surrounds the lookout point - on the spot you will learn all about this story on a blackboard. But even without legends and legends you can enjoy the great view of the Rhine Valley.In constant up and down the Rheinburgenweg leads you further up to the small village Holzfeld. On your way there you will pass several beautiful viewpoints, which invite you to take a leisurely break with benches, loungers and huts. From Holzfeld, the trail descends again evenly towards the valley.Opposite the famous castle Maus awaits you the most exciting part of today's hike. Here a narrow rock path leads along the steep slope of the Rhine Valley. Since the way is well developed, you need not worry about it. After you have mastered this section, we will go through the Gründelbachtal. You climb out of the valley and a very special highlight of the Rheinburgenweg awaits you. Opposite the two castles Katz and Maus stands here the huge castle Rheinfels. Even as a ruin, the huge building is still absolutely impressive and definitely worth a visit.After your tour through the castle, it is only a short distance to the stage goal St. Goar.
