  • Birkenfelder Land

    Once Birkenfelder Land was an important center of the iron industry. Today, you can guess the old Abentheurer ironworks, which you pass on this 26 kilometer long cycle loop.Start of the tour is in Birkenfeld. Past the idyllic fishing pond you cycle to Abentheuer, so a stop at the ironworks is really worthwhile. After you have informed everything about the history of the oldest blast furnace in Hünsrück and about the production of cast iron, you drive along the southern edge of the National Park Hunsrück-Hochwald until you enjoy from a distance a magnificent view of the small town Rinzenberg with its pretty old farmhouses ,Shortly thereafter, it becomes really idyllic: At the Sauerbrunnen at Oberhambach worth a break with a short walk to Petersquelle. Here was once a spa, the guests drank the ferrous water of the sour well, which was also sent as healing water in the world. A sip can not hurt, then it rides much fresher.Through the picturesque valley of Hambach, the route leads you via Elchweiler on to Schmißberg. It's worth taking a break at the Sirona Pavilion, just a few hundred meters behind Schmißberg. From here it goes past the reconstructed Roman road back to Birkenfeld. The history of the iron industry from Celtic times to the industrial age is told in the Landesmuseum - if you have time after the tour, a visit to the museum is worthwhile!
