The Burgstadt Trail Dream Loop is a restorative, easy round tour for relaxing south of Kastellaun, leading through mighty, unspoiled and yet light-filled forests on narrow paths and old mail routes with a number of surprising high points. An idyllic meadow by a waterlily pond right in the middle of the forest invites to linger. The highlight at the end of the trail is the windthrow experience path “Kyrill”.
This hiking trail is suitable for families and has been awarded 72 experience points by the German Hiking Institute.
In the south, Kastellaun stretches out towards a plateau that is characteristic for the Hunsrück, where the ice age left the landscape levelled, creating ideal conditions for superb hikes today.
An excursion from the Jewish cemetery to the “Hohe Buch” lookout point is worth the effort (500 m).
The hike has no significant ascents and therefore makes no special demands on either endurance or surefootedness. It is an ideal route for relaxing.
The Kyrill Trail with a length of 850 m (Storm Experience Trail) is integrated into the Burgstadt-Pfad. This section is not accessible in snow and ice.
