A fantastic round trip taking in enchanted valleys, rushing streams, deep tunnels and ancient ruins from Celtic and Roman times and the age of chivalry is waiting to be discovered here on the “Masdascher Burgherrenweg”, right in the middle of the delightful Hunsrück landscape! Hikers looking for tranquillity and pristine nature will not only get their money’s worth on this dream loop with its many rest areas, but also experience breath-taking vistas in its climactic finale.
The route is of medium difficulty owing to a number of steep ascents leading out of the stream valleys (465 m difference in altitude altogether). But the effort required to negotiate them is not that great because they are quite short.
The trail has been awarded 92 experience points by the German Hiking Institute.
