The trail starts directly in Oberstein’s old town - refreshment stops and sights such as the Felsenkirche, the German Mineral Museum or the Jakob Bengel industrial monument are in the immediate vicinity. Here the path leads past the rock church and the castle complexes right at the beginning. From the castle courtyard, we have a wonderful view over the town.
In the large forest area around Idar-Oberstein, you hike along narrow paths, pass deeply cut stream valleys and climb quite a few metres upwards via sky ladders. Steep ascents and descents alternate with flat sections through dense beech forest. From the viewpoint “Homersfelsen” far above the city, photo-loving hikers get their money’s worth: extraordinary vantage points over the city and to the castle.
