The Pfälzer Waldpfad - through the idyllic Palatinate Forest

Spectacular cliffs, deep valleys and  forests as far as the eye can see! What more can you expect along the 143 km of the Palatinate Forest path. Just relax and recharge your inner batteries with the silence and beauty of untouched nature.

At Johanniskreuz you can visit the house of sustainability "Haus der Nachhaltigkeit", which provides comprehensive information on the topics of forests and humanity. A lasting impression is left by the view from the "Luitpoldturm" on the summit of the "Weissenberberg", where, in good weather, you can see more than 300 other peaks. If your walking shoes now no longer want to play the game you can visit the shoe-making town of Hauenstein where you are bound to find a new pair.

The Dahn Felsenland takes you past bizarre rock formations through a wild and romantic landscape to the ruins of "Drachenfels", with its niches carved into the rock walls, and Castle "Berwartstein" - the epitome of castle romanticism. The trail ends in Schweigen at the "Deutsches Weintor" . The starting point is also of particular interest: from the main station in Kaiserslautern you will leave your ICE train and find yourself directly on the trail. Nothing faster than this!

The "Pfälzer Waldpfad" is easily reached by public transport. Most railway stations have access directly to the main path.
