© Eike Kunz All around Erbeskopf, various tours invite you for a hike through the national park.

Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park stretches over the high levels of Hunsrück at a surface of 10,000 hectares. Hikers and nature lovers find a spacious reserve, where nature is left to take its own course, with a great biodiversity. The park is characterised by a low mountain range and sheer endless forest areas. It offers ideal conditions for rare and delicate species to prosper.

You can explore the fascinating nature of the national park on bike or horse-back, hiking or climbing. Numerous paths lead you through the Celtic ringfort, beautiful beech forests, and over the enchanging Doll mountains. For information on the various trails and attractions as well as interesting exhibitions, you can visit the facilities on Erbeskopf, in Wildenburg, and in Otzenhausen. In Wildenburg, you can even visit a game enclosure, where wolves, wild cats, and lynxes live.
