Palatine Trail at 67753 Rothselberg (67752 Wolfstein – approximately 4 km - on Palatine Trail)

Turn-by-turn directions

From the train station, follow the yellow-marked trail leading to the Remigius Wanderweg and the Winterhelle. There, the blue-marked trail begins leading from Kusel into the forest. Passing the Rübezahl bank and the sequoias, we reach the hill in Haschbach and are already rewarded with the views of the Remigiusberg with its Propstei and on the other side, the castle of Lichtenberg. We explore the geological diversity of the region down in the quarry   (viewing path with many display boards) and climb up the Potzberg in Theisbergstegen. 

During the ascent to the Potzberg, we pass   the Stollenquelle, an old source of mercury and which even today colours the path in yellow. Once on the Potzberg, it is worth making a detour to the lookout tower, 562 m high, or a longer rest in the Wildpark Potzberg with its unique air show.

We continue through Föckelberg, down to Oberstaufenbach and then having reached Niederstaufenbach   climb up the next hill. Having reached the summit we will be rewarded with the views of Wolfskirche Bosenbach. Through the dense forest of Bosenbach we reach the heights of Eßweiler that we then leave to visit the Sprengelburg. Once again, we then traverse forests and meadows with great panoramic views before we get to the tower of the Selberg.

In the course of the trail there are many benches and rest areas which invite you to linger as well as the numerous taverns and inns in the villages along the route.
