The mix of wild and romantic river valleys, steep climbs and a breathtaking view over the Palatine Uplands and the Palatinate Forest right up to the Donnersberg, makes the “devil’s tour” with its 15 km total length into a unique discovery tour of the Palatinate.
On narrow paths and trails which have hardly changed in the course of time we have the opportunity of passing through almost 300 million years of geological history. Passing both old and still active stone quarries, ambitious hikers can inform themselves on several geological information boards set up by the State Office for Geology and Mining.
For active recreation whilst hiking you should not forget to stop and take a break. Along the Teufelstour you will find many beautiful places to rest and linger. The Panorama-Gasthof Emmerwiesenhof in Eulenbis , for example, is situated directly on this premium hiking trail.
In "Fossils worldwide", Hebelstraße 4 in Sulzbachtal the geological subsoil can actually be felt. This exhibition is constructed as both a sales and museum vicinity. A wide range of minerals and fossils, which partly come from the immediate vicinity of the Sulzbachtal , are on display.
