      Everything worth knowing about the dream path "Förstersteig" is available at: information: The route runs - as the name suggests - mainly through forest ...
      But there are always nice huts with some interesting views of the landscape of the Ortenifel ...
      Around Kürrenberg there are various parking lots with access to the dream path.

      Small surprise in a slightly offside side valley - to say it in advance: A visit to the Donnersbachklamm worth it ...The Donnersbachklamm is free of charge and is not overcrowded. For gorge visitors, there is a parking lot in Donnersbach at an inn.Then, however, first come to light doubt, whether it was a good idea to make the detour to Donnersbach: It goes first about 1km more or less along paved roads or along a road.But as soon as you follow the course of the Donnersbach, the picture changes. On a narrow path, it is always close to the shore to a replica of a woodworker's hut and a model of a historic Trraftrechens.Then the Donnersbachklamm becomes a real nature experience with some waterfalls and the bridge "Klein Luzern", over which one crosses the Donnersbach.The last few meters it goes again on wide forest roads or paved roads (with some beautiful views).In the village then worth a visit to the castle and the visit to the castle church ...Further information is available at:

      The crossing of the Wilder Kaiser or a really exhausting tour, which was also a great experience ...First of all, I wanted to be smarter than those who come from the region and know each other. I have decided to climb the Scheffauer (2111m) on the south side and then descend on the north side ...I was also influenced by the altitude profile at komoot. This looks like the fact that you have the "red" sections after reaching the Scheffauer summit almost all behind.
      Obviously, however, komoot descents are always "green" - no matter how steep and exhausting they are ...
      The Widauersteig has it really real in itself ... You can already call it a via ferrata and without sure-footed, alpine experience and above all vertigo it will be really difficult ...
      There are numerous passages insured with steel cables. I would definitely pack climbing gloves next time ...
      The steep ropes are somewhat frayed and sharp in some places ...
      And the next time I would also choose the ascent on the north side - as the local experts recommend:

      After a long time again something homemade - at least I thought that in the planning ...And yes, there have been a lot of photos ...From Cochem it went first over the Apolloweg to Valwigerberg.Then on the BREVA wine & way to Bruttig. On narrow paths you cross the vineyard Valwiger Herrenberg - all, who like narrow and rough ways off the usual routes, will feel comfortable on this section of the route. Great panoramic views of the Mosetal complete the experience ( Bruttig it follows the Moselsteig first on wide dirt roads towards Beilstein until you reach the mountain trail "Moselkrampen".
      Follow the narrow trail to the half-timbered town of Beilstein with the sights Carmelite monastery and ruins Metternich.
      Arriving in Beilstein, I realized that the route from Cochem to Valwigerberg and from Bruttig to Beilstein was identical to the course of the 18th stage of the Moselsteig. Only the section on the BREVA wine & way has something homemade. The rugged path was the makers of the Moselsteig then but probably too tight and rustic ...
      But no matter - but it was always nice ...
      Maybe you should take a closer look at the Moselsteig ...
      In Beilstein I crossed the ferry and it was supposed to go back over the Altarberg back to Cochem. Up to the shelter "thick beech" I would choose the way again. But then it was a bit unattractive - the viewpoint "singer look" is nice, but not really worth a detour. The same applies to Schutzhütte Ernst. And shortly before Kloster Ebernach I ended up in an off-grid-section ...
      From Ebernach to Cochem, everything was back in business.
      Alternatively you could also consider the next time Beilstein by boat back to Cochem to drive - that would be a bit touristy, but would have something of a day on the doorstep ( ...

      To a dream path one does not have to lose words any more. All relevant information can be found at I would not like to mention that the last two climbs (from the Brodenbach direction Ehrenburg & from the campsite Vogelsang in the direction of the refuge "Tempelchen") are quite impressive ...
      The record of Komoot shows for the round almost 600 meters in height, according to it should be just under 900 ...
      However, it was felt today more than 1,000 ... 🌞🌞🌞

      Funky, that tree "eye"!
      Because you get nightmares.
      Did you see really well?
      Thanks for the great picture. The others, too ...

      The nature reserve Dortebachtal is a wild and romantic side valley of the Mosel with partly alpine character.Directly at the entrance to the Dortebachtal there is a very small trail parking lot for 2 to 3 cars.
      Additional parking spaces are available in Klotten on the Moselstraße. However, then you have to walk a pretty long stretch along the main road, which is not really nice ...

      The two dream loops "Fünfseenblick" and "Rheingold" meet almost in the Weilerbachtal near Weiler.
      Via the donkey trail, a steep mountain hiking trail that connects the Weilerbachtal with the plateau terrace "Ginsterstück", you can easily switch from the "Fünfseenblick" to the "Rheingold".
      If you have a long journey, it offers to hike directly both dream loops ...
      Both loops offer great viewpoints and a high path share.I started at the spa center in Bad Salzig and then first to the lookout tower "Fünfseenblick" - then you have the longest climb right at the beginning of the tour.
      After that, it remains challenging with some "up and down".
      A stopover I did not see on the way ...
