Pyrmonter Felsensteig

Hike along the Mosel-Traumpfad Pyrmonter Felsensteig (Pyrmont Rocky Trail)

Adventurous paths and steep cliffs alternate with wide fields and beautiful views, The medieval Pyrmont castle invites the hiker to a visit, and the crowning finish is the idyllic waterfall at the Pyrmont Mill.

Description

The trail starts at the car park at the Pyrmont Mill, near the roaring waterfalls. The path follows briefly the ring road until after it has crossed the road, then it becomes a quiet forest path. Lined by magnificent gorse and hedges, a soft grassy footpath leads to a small grove, before it winds through spacious fields. Visible from a long distance, soon the cross on the Sammetzkopf appears, surrounded in spring by bright rapeseed fields. From here the hiker has a fantastic panoramic view over the region. A soft footpath leads to the nearby nature reserve at the Juckelberg, which hides true nature treasures like gnarled forest trees and magnificent flowering gorse hedges.

The Hauer refuge hut provides a short resting place before the path continues, sometimes up and sometimes down, offering now and again wonderful views, until it reaches the Elzbach. Through a wonderful alder wood, the path follows every bend of the river and passes the impressive cliffs of the "Teufelskammer" (Devil’s Chamber). From the natural idyll of the Elz valley, it is not much further to the medieval Pyrmont castle, which invites the hiker to a visit. The way continues on a marvellous path into “Kingdom of the Rocks”, with caves and steep walls covered in ivy. Afterwards the descent leads down to the Elz valley again, with terrific views of the castle. A path through the valley follows to finally reach the Pyrmont Mill, where the circular route ends.
