A beautiful round walk through the forest near Neumagen-Dhron. Almost exclusively on forest paths and along the course of the Dhorn river, magnificent views await hikers.
On lonely paths and along idyllic river courses you will go around the Harpelstein. The rock in question is the eponym of this hiking tour and is now a protected area.Insights into the hiking tour:In the Dhron Valley, where the two Hunsrück streams "Kleine" and "Große Dhorn" flow together, the circular hike around the Harpelstein begins. On forest and meadow paths, the hiking trail leads past sequoia trees, the Heusprungbach, a quarry, the Hunsrück community of Horath. Characteristic for the tour are peace, silence and beautiful views.It is recommended to hike the tour against the clockwise direction. Thus the ascent on the forest path to the village of Horath, 5 1/2 kilometres away, is always moderate. Refreshment stops can be made in Horath, which is reached about halfway along the route. During the hike there are also various resting places where you can enjoy the view and the food you have brought with you can be distorted.
In Neumagen-Dhron lies the wine ship Stella Noviomagi - a trip on the replica Roman wine ship should not be missed.
