TOURDESCRIPTION

Start and finish of the Rumberg-Steig is the village square in Ludwigswinkel. The orange-coloured trail marker leads through the former military area, Area1, on a steep ascent up to the summit of the Rumberg. On the elongated ridge of the Rumberg, it continues past the five tower-like Rumberg rocks of Ostfels, Lochfels, Wespenfels, Habichtsfels and Kastenfels. After going through a valley, a narrow path then leads up to the Guggebühl, with a mighty rock formation on its east side. The Rumberg-Steig runs from here parallel to the Wasgau Seen Tour, the popular premium trail in the valley of the Sauer. The last stretch of the walk leads idyllically past several ponds and the Roesselquelle before returning back to the starting point.
