A perfect combination: hiking in harmony with nature – hiking as an end in itself. The Soonwaldsteig trail runs from Bingen in the romantic Rhine valley across densely wooded quartzite hills to Kirn in the idyllic Hahnenbach valley. The richly varied Soonwald forest with its havens of tranquillity provides inspiration and invigoration in equal measure. Take time to discover yourself amid the peace, quiet and solitude that unspoilt nature can offer. Great importance is placed on the overall quality of the experience along the Soonwaldsteig trail with about 85 kilometres. Everything from the varied, scenic route, the exemplary signposting and the proximity to cultural attractions has been designed to meet the high-level requirements of the German Institute of Hiking.
