There are 111 hiking trails in Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate which are called "Traumschleifen"; that means a dream of loop trails.

It is a year round hiking trail but not recommended with snow and ice in winter time. After rainfall, some parts of the trail are muddy and slippery. Best time for hiking from April until October.

There are 111 hiking trails in Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate which are called "Traumschleifen"; that means a dream of loop trails.

This trail is recommended from April to November. Hard to walk with ice and snow. It's a cooling hike on a hot summer day deep in the forest. More spectacular from April to June with the higher water level. The Waterfall is a trickle only end of summer.

Where to Stay

There is one hotel along the trail which is famous for their outstanding meals and included breakfast. We'd been here in the hotel Schmausemühle a couple of times. Book your room in advance especially at weekends. It's a family-run hotel and often pretty busy. If you stay here, you can start hiking from the hotel.

There are 111 hiking trails in Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate which are called "Traumschleifen"; that means a dream of circular hiking trails.

Recommended throughout the year. We prefer May because many different flowers are in bloom especially along this trail and October with the autumn foliage. The second reason for April/May and Sept./Oct. it is the right temperature for the filled cupboard with wine along the trail. This is a highlight of the trail. It would be too hot in summer and in winter it is empty.

Recommended from April to October. We prefer May/June less crowded and hot and the autumn foliage. Important to know are the timetables for the guided tours to the slate mine and the reconstructed Celtic settlement. Attached is a picture with the time of the guided tours.

Usually from March to November. However, one highlight are the two Kneipp basins for water-treading. To enjoy these higher temperatures are recommended: May until September.
