Dream loop "Nahe-Felsen-Weg"

The trail starts directly in Oberstein's old town - refreshment stops as well as sights such as the Felsenkirche, the German Mineral Museum or the Jakob Bengel industrial monument are in the immediate vicinity. Normally the path leads right at the beginning past the Felsenkirche and the castle grounds. BUT ATTENTION: Due to rock stabilization works above the Felsenkirche, the path along the Felsenkirche is closed until further notice! A detour is signposted! From the castle courtyard you have a fantastic view over the city. In the large forest area around Idar-Oberstein, you hike along narrow paths, pass through deeply incised stream valleys and climb several meters in altitude via sky ladders. Steep ascents and descents alternate with flat sections through dense beech forest. From the vantage point "Homersfelsen" far above the city, photo-enthusiastic hikers get their money's worth: extraordinary view axes over the city and to the castle.
