The Wäller Tour Augst leads on approx. 14 km kilometers with varied ascents and descents past historically significant sights, such as the Sporkenburg castle ruins near Eitelborn.A connection to the Wäller Tour Augst is also possible in Simmern and the access road with a total length of 3.5 kilometers signposted from there.
14 kilometres through the historiccultural landscape of the Augst bringme wonderful views and interesting sights. I startat the Neuhäusel-Ost hikers' car parkand reach the excellently marked premium trail. I head south alongmeadow paths in a southerly direction andenjoy the landscape. Natural paths lead through the floodplains of theof the Binnbach. There is a smallclimb before the forest. Then I hike up the Schlossberg to the accessibleSporkenburg ruins from the 11thfrom the 11th century. Thenthen descend along the Theilenbach stream to the L 329.I come across a farm track,I follow it in the direction of Arzbach across meadows and pastures. I satisfy my hunger in the old brewery. NowI climb up the Mühlberg, which I caneasier with the help of my trekkingeasier with my trekking poles. Wide views,including the watchtowers of theof the Limes, reward the effort. AtKadenbach there is a rest areawith a barbecue hut. The trail continues uphillto the "Maria in der Augst" chapel, which was only built in 1999/2000. Alast look at the surroundings andI walk back through the forestto the starting point.
A visit to the late medieval castle ruins of Sporkenburg, located about 1 kilometer south of Eitelborn, is worthwhile.
