A hike that takes you over the Werlauer Höhe through the vineyards and past the Werlauer Grube. On the way, you will be rewarded with magnificent views at many vantage points such as the "Pilz" and the "Prinzenstein". The view of the Rheinfels is equally unique. Many information boards tell the story of mining in the region and historical background.

Destination

Turn-by-turn directions

We cross the local road "Alte Heerstraße" and walk straight ahead through the road "An der Heimbach" into the Heimbach valley. The narrow footpath leads us from Fellen in the valley to the Werlauer Höhe, the "Hartenberg", by turning left at the second crossing. From the Telekom transmission station, we walk left along the edge of the slope to the "Pilz" and further left around the farm "Auf der Schanz" to the vineyards.Follow the paved vineyard path until just before the state road coming from St. Goar and walk below the road along a meadow path to the Rheingoldbad car park.We follow the paved farm track to the forest, where we take the ore path past the Werlauer Grube to the "Rehstall" hikers' car park. We cross the country road and take the next path to the left to Boxberger Hof. At the large theme board, we take the left path and come to the hikers' car park at the slag heap. Here we turn right and pass a barbecue hut. Our path leads us downhill into the Brandswald. The paved road takes us past the former Brandswald forester's lodge and Brandsweier. We then turn left and walk past a housing estate along a forest path to the "Prinzenstein" lookout point. From here we again enjoy a magnificent view. Now the path takes us to the right and leads to the district of Fellen, where we reach our starting and finishing point at the "Spritzenhaus" via the "Alte Heerstraße". The path is marked throughout with wooden signs with a pit symbol.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
