      Stage 5 Klingenmünster - Bad BergzabernThe shortest stage of the Weinsteig leads through the forests, meadows and vineyards of Klingenmünsters, via the holiday resorts of Gleiszellen and Pleisweiler to the beautiful spa town of Bad Bergzabern.
      The shortest stage of the Pfälzer Weinsteiges convinces with the charm of the landscape and the flair of the southern Palatinate resorts Gleiszellen and Pleisweiler-Oberhofen. Your destination is the spa town of Bad Bergzabern. From the monastery in Klingenmünster the path runs through the vineyards in the direction of the park and along the Klingbach up through the vineyards towards Gleiszellen. About paved alleys you pass the Hatzelberg fountain on the outskirts, dive into the forest and can be along the slopes of Hatzelberg and the Röhlberges to the crossroads on Seicheneck lead. Following the course of the Hirtenbach stream, the trail leads along the Talaue to the Wappenschmiede. The historic half-timbered house in Pleisweiler invites you to stop before the hike ends through vineyards in the spa town of Bad Bergzabern.

      Our 4th leg from Annweiler to Klingenmünster.
      Today's hike offers plenty of variety. Castle ruins and grape vines.
      From the spa park in Annweiler we hike uphill to the parking lot of the castle Trifels. A detour to the former imperial castle is worthwhile in any case. Passing by the forest restaurant Barbarossa, you will reach the window cliffs. On a charming path we now cross under the rocks. After a short, steep descent we walk along the wooded southern slopes of the Föhrlenberg and then on a path through chestnut forests to the ruins Neukastell mountain. By means of a steep ladder we climb here an observation deck, on which a wonderful view expects us.
      Then we climb past the Slevogthof down to Leinsweiler, to get through Eschbach up to the castle ruins Madenburg. The Burgschänke invites you to stop here. On a narrow path, it goes down to the Kaiserbachtal and past the Palatine Hospital to the ruin Landeck (very rewarding) with a Burgschänke and a magnificent view of the Rhine valley. Now only a descent separates us from our destination Klingenmünster.

      Our 3rd stage from Dernbach to Annweiler.
      This time really strenuous steep climbs over three ridges and a nice descent to Annweiler.
      Our third stage starts in Dernbach. From here we hike steeply uphill into the forest and reach the sanatorium Eußerthal. Comfortable forest paths take us to Eußerthal. Then it goes through orchards past a stone way cross back up into the forest. On the sometimes steep climb in the saddle between Grüneck and Franzosenkopf we pass the donkey pot. On the descent down to Gräfenhausen, the resting place invites you to linger 3-castle views.
      We pass through the small wine village and reach after a longer climb the Holderquelle on the northern slope of the Great Adelsberg. From here, the short detour (about 500 m) to (only) on the weekends cultivated Jungpfalz hut would have been worthwhile. Finally, it is not far to the viewpoint Krappenfels, where we can enjoy a beautiful view of the castle Trifels. A path leads us down to Turnerheim and on to Annweiler.Highlights: Cistercian monastery in Eußerthal, Gräfenhausen, Holderquelle, Krappenfels and Annweiler.Annweiler is again a place with infrastructure. Tip: The restaurant Umoya, delicious fusion cuisine from a dedicated couple. Really delicious!

      2nd day of our hike on the Pfälzer Weinsteig. From here with full luggage. After a short bus ride from St. Martin we start from Gleisweiler, a tranquil wine village. We visit the park of the clinic Gleisweiler with beautiful mature trees (sequoias and cedars). We depart from the Weinsteig, because we still want to visit the winegrower son in Frankenweiler. The wines are very pleasing and they also have good value for money.
      Then we climb up to the Orensfelsen and admire one of the most beautiful views of the Palatinate Forest. Then we descend to Landauer hut, but refrain from a stop because totally overcrowded. We then "climb" for about 15 minutes. up to the castle ruin Neuscharfenbeck and then descend on a nice alternative route down to Dernbach.
      Dernbach is a place that clearly makes the demographic problem in rural areas clear. Here is nothing! A hotel and a pension seem to survive.

      Our 1st stage of our Palatinate vineyard: From St. Martin to Burrweiler.First of all: The name Pfälzer Weinsteig is deceptive. In fact, this usually runs in the forest and not in vineyards. And sometimes he is very steep, horseback is recommended!
      St. Martin is a tourist-orientated wine village, which offers many opportunities for retreat, especially in the ostrich farms.
      From St. Martin, climb uphill for about 5 km until you reach the Wetterkreuz (St. Ottilia), which is the end of the Way of the Cross from Kropsburg to St. Ottilia.
      Approximately 2km further we reach the Peace Memorial, from which there is a beautiful view of the Rhine valley. Then we descend into the Erdenkobener valley down to the Hirschweiher, where we take a break at a simple Waldgastronomie. Then it goes back up towards Rietburg. We use the chairlift to Rietburg. Once at the top, we leave out the possibility of a stop in a restaurant, enjoy again the view of the Rhine valley. Back down we go to Villa Ludwigshöhe, a summer residence of the Bavarian King Ludwig I. Again, the view opens up to the plain. Then we walk down the valley past a Marian grotto, which is apparently used regularly for worship. Then it goes back up to the St. Anna chapel on St. Annaberg and then the final descent to Burrweiler.
      Note: The cabins provide ample opportunity to stop but only on weekends or public holidays, then these are also very well visited. That A retreat within the week is unfortunately not possible.In Burrweiler we find after some back and forth still a restaurant for a dinner, miss the bus back to St. Martin, and must take us a taxi. Actually, we wanted to stay in Burrweiler, but everything was fully booked, so we had 2 nights in St. Martin.

      Beautiful varied hike in nice late summer weather.
      Attention a way in Boksee (goes off the street "in the lake") is no longer walkable. Therefore, stay on the road.
      Not so nice is the crossing of the B404 at the end of the road "In the lake", because no traffic lights and heavy traffic.

      The last few kilometers along the road to Bosau do not necessarily have to be. Alternatively you should try to get along the lake Vierer to the campsite Augustfelde and then either over the square or along the square to the road to Bosau. Would have to be tried.

      The river landscape Eider-Treene-Sorge is a small treasure off the beaten track, so rather lonely start and end point of the hike is the place Schwabstedt on a Treene loop. Then on through the wild moor to the Treene and over the Glockenberg back to Schwabstedt, where we have the rest of the day with a delicious meal in the Hotel zur Treene end.
