Directions

From the start/finish point "Burgweg parking lot", the route first heads uphill towards the ruins of Peperburg Castle.Once at the top, enjoy the views and the peace and quiet in the middle of the old castle ruins. After a short stop to catch your breath, the route continues in the direction of Seelenort, the quarry at Peperburg. From the Peperburg, keep to the right and follow the trail markings A, L, R and A19. Don't forget to look to the left and right... because trees that have grown like tuning forks accompany you on your walk towards the quarry, which you will reach after just a few hundred meters.But don't miss the entrance to the quarry! Turn left off the path and after just a few steps you will find yourself in the middle of the quarry. Take your time and soak up all the impressions in the middle of the quarry. Imposing stone walls, hung with numerous ivy vines, create a dreamlike picture.After stopping at the quarry, turn left again onto the hiking trail and follow trail marker A19 through the beautiful urban forest to the next fork in the trail. Keep left there and continue along the A19 to the next fork in the path. At this point, leave the A19 and follow the A18 in the direction of Peperburg.Once you reach the Peperburg, you descend again to the start/finish point "Burgweg parking lot".
