It's finally here: Starting in the spring of 2015, the Saar-Hunsrück Climb across the eastern Hunsrück over to the Rhine. The long-distance hiking trail will then run another 190 kilometers from Idar-Oberstein to Boppard. The new route is imposing in its combination of spectacular views into the distance with forest passages, the stillness of nature with bizarre chasms. Culture hasn't been forgotten, either: historical places such as the Old Town of Oberstein, medieval Herrstein, the castle town of Kastellaun, and the Rhine town of Boppard all lie along the hiking trail. The 15 Saar-Hunsrück Dream Loops integrated as premium circular trails into this route demonstrate that a true hiking experience awaits hikers. Tours such as the Dream Loops Mittelalterpfad (Middle Ages Trail), Hahnenbachtaltour (Hahnenbach Valley Tour), Layensteig Strimmig Mountain, Baybachklamm (Baybach Ravine), or Mittelrhein-Klettersteig (Central Rhine Climbing Trail) are among the loveliest hiking trails in Germany.
