Hiking maps of our specially prepared routes can be obtained from our reception.



This path is recommended for every season: in the spring with flowering fields and chestnut trees, on hot summer days in the shade of the woods, in the autumn under the colourful canopy and on icy winter days, when the Wied Valley transforms into a fairytale landscape adorned by bizarre ice garlands.

Nature lovers will get their money’s worth on the hike through the woods, meadows and river valley. Away from busy main routes, this secret tip offers romantic views of a varied landscape with many opportunities to observe animals and plants in peace. Red and roe deer, fox and badger cross the path on woodland trails. The Wied Valley is a paradise for waterfowl. Here you can watch ducks, grebes and herons, sometimes even kingfishers, while sheep and horses graze on the meadows.

Distance: 11 Km

Path: Forest path, altitude of about 350 metres

Route: MONREPOS / parking area to Schloss Monrepos

The forests of Monrepos already provided inspiration for Carmen Sylva, the poet and later Queen of Romania, who spent her childhood here. If you want to enjoy a short walk, if you are less mobile or travelling with small children, the Carmen Sylva Trail is the perfect choice. It connects all the historical buildings and natural monuments of Monrepos.

»Monrepos« means »My Repose«. For a good reason: the vast woods form a relaxing oasis overlooking the hectic Rhine Valley. What you seek in vain there, you will find here: fresh air and peace and quiet - apart from the birdsong, of course.

Distance: 2.5 Km

Gradient: Almost no slope, good forestry roads and asphalted paths, suitable for buggies and walking frames
