From Birkenfeld the tour starts over the local recreation area Fischwaid in the direction of adventure. Past the historic ironworks and over the Erzweg it goes through the Trauntal to Hoppstädten Weiersbach. From here you end the tour on a section of the local cycle path.

Author’s recommendation

Many nice resting places await you along the route. At Birkenfeld, a first stop at the ponds in the Fischwaid is worthwhile. In spring, a sea of wild daffodils enchants.

Safety information

The "Erzweg" passage from Abentheuer to Achtelsbach is partly in poor condition, so we ask you to drive carefully.

Observe the traffic rules, watch out for other road users and drive at an appropriate speed, especially on the descents. Show consideration for other cyclists and pedestrians.

Turn-by-turn directions

After starting in Birkenfeld, the route first leads to the Fischwaid recreation area. It is worth taking a short break at the beautifully situated fish ponds. We continue past meadows and fields to bridges and on to adventure. The historic ironworks is to the right of the path, and the old ore path now leads along the edge of the national park towards the Saarland border. If you want, you can extend the tour from here via Sötern to the Bostalsee, and return from there via the local cycle path. We continue to follow our trail markings and drive downhill through the Trauntal to Hoppstädten-Weiersbach. Past the train station, the route takes us over an old railway line along the Steinaubach, over a section of the Nahe cycle path, back to Birkenfeld.
