Experience nature – Hochwald, the hiking and biking region


The Hunsrück region may be best known for the Mosel, Nahe, Saar and Rhein rivers, but it has much more to offer than just that. It has such a diversity of landscapes that will forever remain etched in the minds of anybody who visits the area.

This corner of southwest Germany is characterised by striking landscapes with wooded plateaus and deep valleys, which make it loved by hikers, motorbike riders, mountain bikers and racing cyclists in equal measure. Visit the Hunsrück and leave the big cities and industrial areas behind, because here it’s all about nature, complemented by some idyllically-placed villages and small, but attractive towns.

Welcome to the Saar-Hunsrück Nature Park – in the heart of Europe between the Mosel and the Rhine.

Our natural and cultural landscape is varied, with its vast forests, meadows, hedges and verges full of a wide range of species, its valleys with their rivers and streams, its moorland areas as well as striking rock formations. It is home to a wide range of plants and animals. From the peaks of the Hunsrück down to the sun-drenched vineyards of the Mosel, Saar, Ruwer and Nahe. If you love nature, then you’ll love the Saar-Hunsrück Nature Park.

Be at one with nature amidst unforgettable landscapes as well as a history and culture that’s full of life – in the Saar-Hunsrück Nature Park. The Hochwald holiday region is right in the middle of this region and has plenty to offer its visitors. Fantastic views, mystical rock formations and varied flora and fauna with colourful meadows full of daffodils in the spring are what give this impressive natural environment its character, and are the ideal foundation for the kind of sustainable tourism which we offer in the Hochwald holiday region.

Nationalpark Hunsrück-Hochwald

The Hunsrück, and in particular the Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park, which was founded in 2015, is considered by the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation to be one of the “hotspots for biological diversity” in Germany.


Wild cats, black storks etc. have all made their home here. The main reason why these timid creatures have settled in Hunsrück in such high numbers is the peace and quiet that prevails in the vast stretches of forest, which people too are also starting to appreciate in today’s ever-more hectic world. Nothing could be more appropriate than letting nature be nature in the Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park and making this “treasure” accessible to people in the form of sustainable tourism.

The Hochwald holiday region is directly adjacent to the national park, and so offers its visitors originality and authenticity right on its doorstep. Experiencing a slow pace of life and nature in its raw form isn’t a marketing ploy in the Hochwald holiday region, but a conscious appreciation of people and nature. Up-to-date information about the national park and the activities it offers for tourists can be found here:
