Hike through the wild and wonderful Ehrbachklamm (valley), and visit to the historic medieval Ehrenburg castle
Dream loop 'Ehrbachklamm' (Ehrbach gorge) hiking tour
The 'Ehrbachklamm' is located on the Hunsrueck heights, between the Rhine and Moselle Rivers, an approx. 30 min car ride from downtown Koblenz.
Hike through this romantic gorge, get in touch with nature, and experience lofty rocks and waterfalls.
The tour leads over verdant slopes, through the silence of needle, beech and oak woods and enchants with views of the Hunsrueck heights.
Back at the starting point we will take a short car ride to the Ehrenburg castle (castle ruin with restaurant and Hotel) for drinks. Here you can also have an optional dinner.
Start and end point of the hike is the parking lot in Oppenhausen (Wanderparkplatz).
From there we hike 8. 5 km (5. 3 miles) with a cumulative elevation gain of approx. 590 meters (1, 936 ft. ) on a pure nature trail, with plenty of benches and places to stop and enjoy the scenery at your leisure, while hearing only the rustle of the Ehrbach creek.
The gorge was already used in the middle ages as a connection between the Hunsrueck and the Rhine River.
Back at the parking lot we will take a short 15 minute car ride to the Ehrenburg castle to enjoy some wine, beer or the like.
Here you have the opportunity to have an optional dinner.
Sturdy footwear and hiking clothing is a requirement (rain gear, small backpack, hiking pants). Bottled water and snacks will be provided at the parking lot for you to carry.
