The panoramic tour on the sunny plateau in EdelSteinLand offers fantastic views on a route length of approx. 40 km as you ride over the plateau heights. Starting points are Berschweiler near Kirn, the Fischbach copper mine or historic Herrstein.

Due to the varied topography, this is a sporty tour that is also suitable for e-bikes. The trail partly follows the Nahe-Hunsrück-Mosel cycle path and is thus connected to the Nahe cycle path at Fischbach. There is also a connection to the new National Park Cycle Route (also opening in 2021), which will run for approx. 85 km around the National Park.
