Eventful connection path between Saar-Hunsrück-Steig and Soonwaldsteig

If you want to connect the two outstanding premium trails of the Hunsrück, the Soonwaldsteig and the Saar-Hunsrück-Steig, on a beautiful hike, you should take the Schinderhannespfad.
It is named after the robber captain Schinderhannes, who was up to mischief in the region in the 18th century.
Special sights along the route are the castle in Kastellaun, the Schinderhannesturm in Simmern or the castle in Gemünden.

The gentle tour leads on easy-to-walk paths through a landscape with a balanced dramaturgy. It accompanies idyllic meadow valleys with lively babbling brooks, crosses charming forests and offers wide views over the Hunsrück from the open plateaus, sometimes with more, sometimes with less and also without wind turbines. The historic town centers in the stage towns of Kastellaun, Simmern and Gemünden invite you to stroll.
