Excursions in Saar-Hunsrück

The Hochwald holiday region has plenty to offer holidaymakers in terms of things to do, but we want to spread our wings a bit further and show you a selection of things worth doing in our neighbouring areas. Further tips can be found by visiting our tourist information centre.

Hunsrück

Hunsrück

If you want to climb up to the Erbeskopf, the highest point in Rhineland-Pfalz, explore one of the many castle ruins and look for the ghosts that still haunt them, walk along the dizzying Geierlay bridge, the most beautiful hanging-rope bridge in Germany, or learn more about typical Hunsrück villages with their attractive half-timbered houses, then the Hochwald holiday region is the right place for you, because all this is just a short trip away from Hunsrück in our neighbouring regions.

Trier & Luxembourg

Trier & Luxembourg

Our holiday region lies just a few short kilometres from the gates of the oldest city in Germany, the Roman city of Trier, which with a total of eight UNESCO World Heritage sites is an absolute must-see www.trier-info.de

 

It’s not just Trier which can boast of cultural offerings worth visiting though, you can also experience history and culture on the other side of the border with Luxembourg. www.lcto.lu/de

Rivers and wine

Rivers and wine

Surrounded by the Mosel, Nahe, Saar and Rhine rivers, there are few better places to spend a day trip touring vineyards and taking leisurely boat trips than the Hochwald holiday region. The only problem in taking a boat trip on one of the big rivers or visiting a winery is choosing which one, such is the choice available in and around the Hunsrück region. The tourism organisations in the neighbouring regions can provide you with all the information you need.

Visitor mines

Visitor mines

If you want to delve a bit deeper into our beautiful region, then you can literally do just that by visiting one of the visitor mines, because a whole other world awaits you deep under the ground at the slate quarry in Fell (www.bergwerk-fell.de) as well as at the historic copper mine in nearby Fischbach (www.besucherbergwerk-fischbach.de) – and the best thing about it is that they are only half an hour away by car.
