Folgen Sie dem Wanderweg in Deutschlands Südwesten auf verschlungenen Pfaden, durch romantische Bachtäler und geheimnisvolle Wälder, über steile Felsen und lichte Streuobstwiesen. Erleben Sie dabei immer wieder Fernsichten von den Hunsrück-Höhen. Erleben Sie die einmalige und abwechslungsreiche Landschaft. Nach Grimburg am Keller Steg teilt sich der Weg und Ihnen steht die Möglichkeit offen, nach Trier oder Idar-Oberstein zu wandern.
