This circular route leads through a varied landscape up to Hödeshof and into the Kautenbach valley.
Via the Schottstraße uphill we reach the actual hiking trail in the first bend. This leads through gardens and meadows along the Schottbach stream to the main road. Cross the road and continue downhill until you reach the stream again. Here begins a wildly romantic route along a former quarry and through deciduous forest up to the Hödeshof. From here we take the path downhill towards the fish ponds and follow a beautiful hiking trail into the Zweibachtal valley and to Kautenbach. The footpath now leads above the Kautenbach towards Bad Wildstein. This section of the trail is also called the "Wildsteiner Schweiz" and we can admire impressive rock formations. In the district of Bad Wildstein we reach the pumping station of the Wildstein spring, where free thermal water is available. Afterwards we follow the road for a short distance to the car park of the Moseltherme. Here, opposite, the path turns right into a small path and leads through vineyards to the hiking trail above the spa hotel Parkschlösschen. Further above the tennis courts, the trail continues straight on to the anchor bridge in the direction of Trarbach. Along the pond path we get back to the town.
Enjoy the thermal water at the pumping station of the Wildstein spring.
Visit the first miniature golf course in Germany.
