Along the 76-kilometre long Kapellen Pilgerweg, you will  experience the special characteristics of the countryside around  Bad Bergzabern. The veritable sea of vineyards, the peace and quiet of the Palatinate Forest and the numerous churches and chapels as a place of reflection - one way of slowing down  everyday life. We recommend splitting the trail into four stages.  From Bad Bergzabern to Klingenmünster you should start in the park at the St. Jakobus-Pilger-Statue then onto Pleisweiler-Oberhofen , Gleiszellen-Gleishorbach and the Dionysiuskapelle.  In Klingenmünster you can follow a  marked trail to its monastery  and  the memorial for victims of euthanasia at the Pfalzklinikum. Another stage leads from Klingenmünster to Vorderweidenthal via the Karlsplatzhütte to the Abtskopf and then continues to the ruined castle of  Lindelbrunn and then on to  Vorderweidenthal. On the way it is worthwhile visiting the Friedenskapelle in Birkenhördt. The stage from Vorderweidenthal to SchweigenRechtenbach goes through Lauterschwan, the Seehof-Weiher, the Hirzeck-Haus and the Mundat Forest to St. Germanshof, with its Europadenkmal and then along the border past the Pauliner Schloss to the Deutsches Weintor. The final  stage from Schweigen-Rechtenbach back to Bad Bergzabern leads past the Ruine Guttenberg, the Stäffelsberg-Turm, the KolmerbergKapelle, the fortified church in Dörrenbach and past the Böhämmerhaus back into the park and to the Südpfalz Therme.
