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. Below in the valley is a small spa town with a nice castle.
How to Get Here:
- The hike starts and ends at the station in Bad Münster am Stein, one station past Bad Kreuznach.
