High up, along idyllic grasslands and forest paths, you are on the Preußensteig , which offers fantastic views along the former Prussian-Bavarian border. There are many historical boundary stones and the highest mountain in the Kusel district, the Herzerberg, is also a good place for watching hang-gliders .
History meets outstanding views. The Preußensteig trail is a beautiful and varied hiking trail with many fantastic views and with Castle Lichtenberg and the countless border stones, a great historical encounter. A lot of nature, a great and varied landscape and challenging climbs - the Preußensteig has a lot to offer.
Be sure to leave enough time to visit Burg Lichtenberg. With a length of 400 metres it is the longest ruined castle in Germany and offers a great view from the castle keep. (Free admission all year)
Good footwear is required. The trail is not accessible all year round, since there are some steep sections, which are slippery in wet weather.
Particularly in the autumn, it is also important to ensure that the leaves lying on the ground can obscure unevenness, roots, stones or holes in the path.
You will have to reckon with this kind of activity if you are going on a hike.
If you are of the opinion that these are not accessible for you, you should avoid them.
Hiking gear and solid footwear are required. Please bring your own meals. Only between Lichtenberg and Kusel can be visited on the way. Hiking sticks are recommended!
