This trail will take you through one of the Saarland’s biggest woodlands. Kilometer after kilometer of meandering paths invite you on a spectacular hike in the forest. There will be banks of mottled sandstone on the way as well as caves. You’ll also see the mysterious Frauenbrunnen well that has been used as a ceremonial site since Celtic times.
