Besser spät als nie - ich geh jetzt wandern!
Seit über 10 Jahren wohne ich im Hunsrück (AKA Hunsbuckel), habe mich aber erst im September 2018 dazu entschlossen, diesen jetzt auch per pedes zu erkunden. Erstaunlich, was man da so alles entdecken kann.
Mittlerweile habe ich 5.500 Kilometer (teils nicht öffentlich) zurückgelegt und zehnmal die Höhenmeter des Mount Everest überwunden.
Besonders gefallen mir die Traumschleifen des Saar-Hunsrück-Steigs, die nicht wie andere Wege über ausgebaute Forststraßen sondern über manchmal ausgetretene, manchmal kaum erkennbare "Trampelpfade" verlaufen.
𝗭𝘂𝗿 𝗜𝗻𝗳𝗼: Die von mir eingestellten Bilder entstehen mit Nikon-Spiegelreflexkameras, eine D5600 mit 10-20 Weitwinkel-Zoom und eine D5300 mit 18-300 Tele-Zoom.
Beide Kameras könnten die Bilder mit Koordinaten versehen, das habe ich aber deaktiviert, weil GPS und SnapBridge höllisch den Akku leersaugen und Komoot die Bilder auch so anhand der Aufnahmezeit mit dem Track verortet.

Das sind Touren, die ich selbst mit Komoot geplant habe, also keine vorgegebenen Touren, und müssen auch nicht nur durch den Hunsrück führen. Diese führen manchmal über bekannte Wege, oft aber auch direkt in die Botanik, man ist also vor Überraschungen und Irrwegen nicht gefeit, aber meist alleine auf unbeschilderten Wegen.

Today I have combined the vital tours stone, wine & color as well as the cuckoo path, since they already have a common part of the route, into one tour so that I don't finish before noon. This is also good for the tours, as together they offer a wide range of routes, while individually they appear a bit one-sided.But my highlight of the day were the squirrels, two of which I got in the picture. One eyed me curiously, the other made a huge racket and probably tried to scare me away in this way.The tour starts at the hiking car park Rauer Kreuz and then leads first through vineyards, then through the forest and the floodplain of the Limbach, at the end of which a mighty rock massif rises. Somehow I already suspect it and the way actually leads up to the "Rabenfels". On its ridge you can get to the vertically sloping rock cliff, where there are, however, no fuses at the edge with loose rubble and the view into the abyss makes the pulse in your ears!It is less exciting to continue up to the fields on the Ketzeberg and then descend into the Raubach valley. This is where the two tours meet and I now choose the Kuckucksweg around Hergenfeld. This leads over meadows and fields, through the forest and finally back into the Raubach valley, where I change the tour again.Now it goes back to the vineyards of Wallhausen around the Johannisberg, to then return to the starting point, where the parking lot is now - like almost all today - jam-packed.

My goal today was to explore the Vierherrenwald south of the Idarkopf. The area is criss-crossed by countless springs, which are mostly used by waterworks, but occasionally send lively bubbling streams into the valley. That was also one of the reasons for the rise of the Stumm ironworks dynasty, which also gave me two goals.The tour starts at the "Haniel Schlössje", a monumental hunting lodge with an interesting history. The house with 15 rooms, built around 1895 by Richard Haniel (1865–1937) as a hunting lodge, moved in 1955 from the widow Ulla Haniel to the Protestant Church in Germany. It granted the then Bundestag President Eugen Gerstenmaier, who had headed the aid organization of the Protestant Church from 1949 to 1954, a right of use. This gave him access to the house in the Idarwald and invited political friends to state hunts and other festivities. Helmut Kohl, Franz-Josef Strauss and other prominent politicians in the country came to the Hunsrück to hunt. At the end of the 1960s, the hunting lodge hit the headlines nationwide, as the transfer to the Protestant Church is said to have been in connection with tax evasion by the widow Haniel.
While newspapers close to the CDU called the house a "ski lodge" at the time, social democratic newspapers spoke of a "castle-like villa" or a "feudal hunting lodge with palatial dimensions," wrote Der Spiegel at the time. However, the tax offense of the widow Haniel was already statute-barred when it was discovered. In 1979 the house became the property of a board member of the jam manufacturer Schwartau. After it had belonged to an entrepreneur from the plastics industry for three years, the Fruytier brothers (wood industry) bought the building in 2001. The sawmill in Hochscheid belongs to the company.From there it goes through the Vierherrenwald, where I made several detours to the sources, but unfortunately did not find any particularly interesting buildings or views. Just an indescribable calm that was only disturbed by the rushing streams down the valley. Then it goes down to Schauren and the village of Hammerbirkenfeld, where I was a bit disappointed by the listed building of the Stumm-Eisenhütten-Dynasty, because the decay is already luring the neighbors as urbexers to this Lost Place. I was told about the increasing vegetation in the building.We continue on the paths of the dream loop STUMM-Eisenhütten-Weg past the Harfenmühle to the Asbacherhütte, where you can glimpse a bit of the splendor of the ironworks at that time, even if the administration building and residential building of the hut manager Rudolph Heinrich Böcking are used today as a curative educational facility by the deaconry will. Of the blast furnaces, you can only see a few remains of the wall, reminiscent of those of the Graefenbacher Hütte.From there it goes up, past Asbach to Hellertshausen and the Hottenbacher mills. Following the Kappelbach, it goes past the Juchem quarry near Stripshausen and through the four-community forest back into the Vierherrenwald.

2 day of our tour. Just as beautiful as the first day but today 80% forest roads!
Slept (lol) should be in the refuge
Klidinger waterfall, if there hadn't been a loud party within clear earshot until after 3 a.m., so that, at least for me, I couldn't think of sleep and at 6 a.m. the cell phone rang!
Tour highlight was the approx. 25 cm long grass snake baby!Due to the high proportion of forest roads, I give the 2 part of the tour
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ out of 5 ⭐
So a total of 18 / 5⭐ and therefore my express recommendation for those who feel fit enough (!!!!!) to follow the tour!

Today after a short night we went over a rope-secured via ferrata to the Klidinger waterfall, the highest waterfall in the Eifel with a drop of 28 meters.From there it goes on the slope above the Erdenbach first to the Bismarck tower (dilapidated) and then to the Hohenzollern tower. A long loop then leads down the slope to Bad Bertrich in the spa gardens and through the small town, and then ascends via long serpentines to the Mooshütte. From there it goes over long single trails on the slope towards Bonsbeuren. On the way we almost stumbled over a small grass snake, which defended its territory by licking and snaking faster than the autofocus on the lens. She found the chunky "stones" that her visitors wore on their feet, under which she hid and curled up several times, until her new home took a step to the side ... particularly exciting.From up there it goes into the Kondelwald and on long paths down to the Hesselbach, which we followed until a closure due to felling work, which we probably forgot years ago, and crossed the stream, then to follow it to the Lost Place Diana outdoor pool and finally the goal in To reach Bad Bertrich.Unfortunately in Bad Bertrich it is practically impossible to go out to eat something because everything is reserved by spa guests. Therefore we avoided a pizzeria in Lutzerath to give the tour a celebratory conclusion.

Manggongjai invited me to this tour that Frank Recktenwald presented in March. In order to give us enough time, the tour is divided into two days with an overnight stay in a refuge.The tour starts in Bad Bertrich at the Elfengrotte and then leads on the Ueßbach to the dilapidated Steffenswarte. From there it goes into the valley to the Ueßbach and along this wildly romantic to Antoniusruh. On the other side of the stream, the slope then climbs steadily to Kennfuss and Falkenlay, one of the many volcanic cones that rise high above the landscape.From there it goes down past the "Stone Age Caves" and on to the Maischquelle, where we have taken a longer break and have drawn both water from the spring and chilled drinks from the "drinks machine" of the volunteer fire brigade. A blazing barbecue fire, a music system and a large supply of drinks indicated that the end of the day is being taken literally here today.On the slope above Bad Bertrich we went over numerous viewpoints to the "oasis of calm", from there to follow the geology path to Kennfuss, to descend into the valley of the Erdenbach and to climb again, as our goal for today is the Klidinger refuge above the Waterfall was. Unfortunately, the party at the Maischquelle was only 1 km away as the crow flies, so we could listen to music and growls until 3 a.m. before the alarm clock ended the night early.The tour has it all, as it often goes over narrow paths with a lot of ups and downs and each of the many viewpoints simply costs time; o)

I came across this tour in spring with Frank Recktenwald, who ran the entire tour with 40km in one day!
Insanity! I divided the tour into two sections, because the 40km with 2 hours of arrival and departure was clearly too much for me! Thank goodness, because I crawled on the ground after 18km 😂.
The tour is SUPER NICE (!!!!!)

Today followed the ascent to the Erbeskopf, which was bathed in the light of the rising sun.From here the tour leads to Thranenweier, where Kriemhild is said to have shed her tears over the death of her beloved Siegfried.From here the tour leads to the trails of the Traumschleife Trauntal Höhenweg, where I chose the path over the Wehlenstein and made a detour to a rocky massif hidden in the forest called Luisenruhe. I had no idea which huge rock formations can be climbed off the beaten track. With a big grin, we went to Abentheuer, along the Traunbach, in order to then cope with the long ascent to the Saar-Hunsrück-Steig, which then leads on a many kilometers long single trail with stones and roots to the Dollberg.So today we went from the highest point in Rhineland-Palatinate, the Erbeskopf, to the highest point in Saarland, the Dollberg. The tour then leads over the Celtic ring wall and to the shining pink Mannfels as the final point not far from the parking lot in Otzenhausen.Great tour with lots of beautiful places that I haven't seen before and probably never would have seen.

Carsten presented this tour last autumn
komoot.de/tour/274083795Historians suspect the scene of the Nibelungen saga on the slopes of the Erbeskopf. Hagen von Tronje (Tronege) is said to come from Dhronecken. This is said to have killed Siegried at a spring where Kriemhild then shed her tears. The source area is the high moor at Erbeskopf and the place below it was called "Tränenweiher", today's Thranenweier.The tour starts at the Otzenhausen car park and leads over the planet path at the Nonnweiler reservoir into the Primstal. Here, instead of a sea of nettles, I was surprised by thousands of orchids.
Unfortunately, I was too early at the Abtei's flight exhibition and didn't want to waste a whole hour waiting next to the planned half hour for photos. From there it goes into the valley of the Bubenbach and to Geisfeld, in order to follow the paths of the Königsfeld dream loop. Finally, the small Dhron leads to Dhronecken, where the castle and a large garden invite you to linger.From here the tour on the Vital Tour Thalfang on Komoot leads unknown paths of an educational fruit path upwards and then next to the overgrown tracks of the Hunsrückquerbahn to Thalfang.From there it goes steadily up to the Schlaukopf, in order to dive into the "Singing Valley", which then leads to the Erbeskopf, where I moved into my night's quarters in the large hut near the Hunsrückhaus.

The Vitaltour Schlossweg takes its name from Winterburg Castle from the late 13th century. The castle of the Sponheimers survived a feud with Archbishop Balduin von Trier and the Thirty Years' War, but not the wars of conquest of Ludwig XIV against the Palatinate in 1689, but considerable remains remained. In 1839 the huge tower fell into the valley and damaged the schoolhouse, so the ruins were torn down to be on the safe side. Today there are only a few remains of the wall and the office building that was built later has been a school campus since 1959.The tour starts not far from the Bockenauer Schweiz campsite and follows the Aue of the Ellerbach to Winterburg, where it goes in a loop over the lush meadows west of the place squeezed into a notch valley, and then from above to reach the place that is so narrow that next to the stream and the road there is hardly any space for the houses. The church staircase ends in the middle of the street, which is only possible because it is actually a bridge over the stream. It is precisely through these bottlenecks that trucks from a quarry are constantly thundering, so that I was reminded of Carrara, where the trucks with the marble blocks prefer to give way because they cannot or will not brake.From the valley it goes over the Mainz path up to the school camp, which has been given a bit of a castle character, so that the kids can feel really medieval in the historic office building. The actual castle is next door, separated by the moat. You can climb the castle hill, but only tree roots hold a few rubble stones in place. If you want to see the remains of the castle you have to keep right twice on the castle hill and then you will find some brick walls on the slope that are increasingly overgrown.From the castle it goes into the valley of the Gebrother Bach, from there on forest paths to the Hahn, from whose "pulpit" (a rock nose) one has a wonderful view into the valley. From Hahn it goes to Schlicht and then to Meerhölzchen (yes, the hills have funny names there). Finally, it goes over a ridge path, which was the only one on the whole tour that was overgrown and muddy, back past the Bockenauer Switzerland campsite to the starting point.The paths of the tour are not spectacular and adventurous, but with the exception of the one mentioned above, they are good and pleasant to walk. Due to the beauty of nature and the incredible tranquility away from the streets, this tour - like the Hasenkammer Traumschleife - is one of the flatterers of the soul.

Do you sometimes miss the "finished" feeling after a tour?
One would still have ... there was still ... where was actually ... I didn't even see ...I felt like after the really beautiful and varied Vitaltour Felsengarten tour
in post-processing and research. I missed a Nahe crossing and found the "Simmerhammer" on the map, the stories around it and the numerous streets with "Hammer" in their name.The tour starts at the hiking car park at the entrance to the village on Kellenbach. From here a path leads along a dozen hairpin bends to the Rot (h) enberg refuge with a wonderful view of the still sleeping city. From there it goes on a narrow single trail on the slope through the forest to the fields above Hochstetten-Dhaun.The B41 has been under construction for years and the dykes on the Nahe are now being upgraded for the anticipated floods of the century, so that I once again had to ignore a "no passage" sign to get to the other side of the river across a rather rotten bridge . The planned makeshift crossing does not yet exist, but the bridge is still passable for pedestrians. Of course, you now walk through the dyke construction work, but you can already guess that it will be nice one day, as an old stream bed will also be renatured.At Martinstein it goes back over the Nahe and up to the "Martinsteiner Klotz" with a beautiful view of the Nahe valley. We continue through the Flachsberg nature reserve with its sub-Mediterranean dry grassland and several fine views along the Nahe.Then it goes to the cultivated meadows and fields on the Brauenberg, and then descends to Simmertal. This time I took a closer look at the town, where industrialization with an iron hammer works as early as the 16th century. Ludwig Böcking took over this from the Wildgrafen at the time, a little later it came into the possession of the Elbertzhagen family, whose name still stands for a foundry for iron, bronze, brass and aluminum.
Leather factory, sawmill, brickworks and quarries created numerous other jobs.The listed Villa Elbertzhagen at Simmerhammer, which unfortunately was badly affected by the floods in the 90s, testifies to the prosperity. The dilapidated building was foreclosed in 1996 and fell into disrepair. A Russian couple only bought the villa in 2014 and began the extensive renovation, which is currently on hold. At least the roof is new, so there will be no more damage until the villa is kissed awake from its deep sleep.
blitzlichtkabinett.de/lost-places/die-villa-elbertzhagenThose who are less interested in industrial culture can of course omit the Simmerhammer and the path through the village. Basically, the tour can also be combined well with the vital tour rock garden.
