Relaxing circular hike through the Moselhunsrück on forest and meadow paths. A contrast hike to the tours along the Moselle, where there is sometimes a lot of traffic.
The hike starts in Kleinich, which belongs to the parish of Kleinich. The word Kirchspiel stands for parish. The small villages of Kleinich, Pilmeroth, Fronhofen, Thalkleinich, Götzeroth, Ilsbach, Hochscheid and Oberkleinich together form the parish of Kleinich, where the Reformation was introduced in 1557. Until today the inhabitants are therefore almost exclusively Protestant, in contrast to those of the neighbouring parishes of Monzelfeld, Longkamp and Kommen.A clear contrast to the Mosel is the Hunsrück. Four to five hundred meters above the Moselle there are extensive forests in a magnificent mountainous part of the holiday region. It is a very special, remote world, only a few kilometres away from the hustle and bustle of the valley. If you are looking for pure nature, if you are looking for silence and tranquillity in a charming landscape, you have come to the right place. And will find species-rich forests, green heaths and magnificent views!Insights into the hiking tour:The tour is something for "quiet" hikers. Even on the forest paths in the forest there is hardly any traffic, here you can walk along beautifully. Nevertheless, there are beautiful views and worth seeing stations like the Wilhelmsbrunnen or the grave field of the archaeology park "Belginum".You can stop for refreshments at Landhaus Arnoth in KIeinich.
The Archaeology Park Belginum - open from Easter to October - provides lively information about Celtic and Roman history: be sure to plan a visit.
