The Hunsrück is perfect for a hiking holiday in Germany and much more

Hiking through moorland, across wooden walkways and along strange piles of quartzite blocks means hiking along the Saar-Hunsrück-Steig, Germany's most beautiful long-distance trail. Adventurous walkers follow in the footsteps of the Romans and the Celts and explore their ancient settlement sites in the Hunsrück hills.
Ringed by the Moselle, Nahe, Rhine and Saar rivers, the Hunsrück has a whole host of fascinating attractions: old mills beside babbling brooks, mighty castles and romantic places such as Herrstein or Kastellaun where visitors are reminded of long-gone days, exploring the ruins of mediaeval fortifications and strolling along lanes lined with timber-framed buildings.
