Travel highlights and activities in the Hunsrück

Follow the Hunsrück-Höhenstraße (Hunsrück Hill Route) which leads for 175 Kilometres through low mountain ranges, a beautiful landscape and pretty towns and villages with half-timbered houses. Visit Germany’s longest suspension bridge in Hunsrück, the "Geierlay suspension bridge", 360 metres long and 100 metres above the Mörsdorfer Bach valley.

Kastellaun: Shaped by history

The historical town Kastellaun is situated in the middle of the Hunsrück low-mountain-range area and nevertheless close to two impressive river valleys, the Rhine and Moselle. Visit the old quarter with its two churches, picturesque half-timbered houses and the medieval ruin of Kastellaun castle.

Mount Erbeskopf and the Hunsrückhaus activity centre

The Erbeskopf is the highest elevation in Rhineland-Palatinate, offering great possibilities for outdoor activities, from hiking to a ride on the summer toboggan run. There is also located the Hunsrückhaus activity centre for nature and environment. Especially for families it offers an exhibition about the natural landscape of the Hunsrück, a forest playground and a sensory trail, along with an extensive range of events.

HEIMAT is Hunsrück

HEIMAT is the title of a German TV series which made the Hunsrück region famous worldwide. With the HEIMAT film cycles producer Edgar Reitz set milestones in German and international film history. But HEIMAT is also a feeling. HEIMAT is Hunsrück.The characters in the film are unthinkable without their ties to the family, the villages and the landscape in the Hunsrück and Rhine valley areas.
A brochure of the Hunsrück-Touristik GmbH introduces you to the most important HEIMAT locations in the Hunsrück and in the Loreley valley.

Hunolsteiner Klammtour: Hike with a visit to a Farmhouse Café

The Hunolsteiner Klammtour Ravine Tour is one of the "Dream Walks", as the popular circular hiking routes in the Hunsrück are known. The starting point is perfectly located for anyone with the "rumbles" directly adjacent to the "Hunolsteiner Hof" farmhouse café close to Morbach/Hunolstein. The first highlight on the ten kilometre long hike is a visit to the ruins of Hunolstein Castle with a sweeping view over the deep Dhron Valley and the beautiful Hunsrück countryside. From there, the route descends into the valley where the raging River Dhron winds between steep cliff walls on its way down the valley to join the Moselle. The trail is particularly exhilarating in the wildly romantic Holzbach Ravine with its waterfall. Breathtaking views and the gastronomic temptations of the farmhouse café signal the end of the hike.
