Hike: Redcliff Canyon
One of Germany's truly hidden gems is the Nahe Valley and the dramatic gorge that the river carves through the landscape. The Rothenfels or the Red Cliffs is a sheer vertical massif that rises from the otherwise flat landscape of the Palatinate. This hike takes you to the two main sights, the beautiful Red Cliffs and the ruined Artillery Bastion on top of them.
Hike: Palatine Meadows
Highland meadow landscapes are confined to the well-known areas in the Alps. The Palatinate has a small meadow-landscape thanks to centuries of pasture animals grazing on the land. Best visited in Spring or Autumn, the meadows near Neu-Bamberg are very pretty.
Hike: Nahe Valley Panorama
The Nahe Valley has several spectacular viewpoints. This hike focuses on one, in particular, simply the "The Best Nahe Viewpoint" or the "Two Land Viewpoint." The hike also includes a visit to some industrial monuments nearby, including a mercury mine founded by the ancient Romans and a sandstone quarry.
