Starting at the communal house, the tour passes the motorhome site Höhenblick zum Rothenbachsberg (beautiful view), continues over Niederbrombacher and Winnenberger Höhe with an equally beautiful view and continues through the Teufelsgraben into the Nahe valley. At the Fischerhütte there is an opportunity for refreshment (self-service). Take the road back to Oberbrombach.

Destination

Oberbrombach at the community house

Turn-by-turn directions

We start at the community centre along the B41 and then turn left into Sonnenberger Weg. After the last house we keep to the right and reach the Rothenbachsberg. From the vantage point we enjoy the view over the roofs of Oberbrombach to Mackenrodt and Wildenburg. A little later we reach the next vantage point with two benches. We look over Niederbrombach to the Saarland. We continue on a narrow path through a coppice forest, later on a field path over fields and meadows with a wide panoramic view. On an asphalt field path we reach the K14, which we continue walking for 200m to the right before turning left into the road to Winnenberg. From the highest point of our hike we enjoy a fantastic panoramic view. Soon the path forks and we take the left path to the edge of the forest. To the right we walk a few meters over a meadow down into the forest. At the beginning steeply downhill, later a little flatter our way winds into the valley. Soon we discover a trickle which merges into the romantic "Teufelsgraben". Before it flows into the Nahe we meet the dream loop "Lorettaweg". Along the railway line and the Nahe we reach the bridge over the Lambach. The path leads us on a well constructed path steadily uphill to the starting point in Oberbrombach.
