The access path is either from the parking lot at the entrance to the village or the bus stop in Dörrenbach. The round trip leads from the Wanderparkplatz "Altes Bild" past the Wanderparkplatz "Drei Eichen" and then the ruins of Guttenberg to the red sandstone rock formation "Steinerner Tisch" and the lookout point “Stäffelsberg”. At the beginning and end of the path, you also walk along the Gebrüder Grimm Märchenweg with its seven fairytale stations.

The so-called “Sleeping Beauty of the Palatinate” the village of Dörrenbach was awarded, in 1975, the title of being the most beautiful village along the Deutsche Weinstrasse. This small spa resort with just 1,000 inhabitants, is one of our favourite holiday destinations, right next to the Deutsche Weinstrasse and yet still fabulously quiet. Perhaps you would first like to stroll through the picturesque town centre with its half-timbered houses, a splendid town hall in Renaissance style, the medieval fortified church - and several cosy wine bars. 40 km of the most beautiful hiking trails wait for you in and around Dörrenbach: through chestnut tree forests, through sunny vineyards, to the Kolmerbergkapelle and the Stäffelsberg, with their magnificent views. You have the choice of hiking trails ranging from the “Pfälzer Weinstieg to quality hiking trails around the village such as the Dörnröschen Rundwanderweg or the Gebrüder Grimm Märchenweg. Treat yourself afterwards to a stop in one of the cosy Dörrenbacher wine taverns!
