The five different trails are between 4 and 12 km long and offer unique views. If you would like to cover a little more distance, combine the paths with each other. But there are not only local paths: The pilgrim path "Lutherweg 1521" leads through Bad Nauheim. Hiking breaks are worthwhile, as there are nice places to stop and interesting sights along the way.
The hiking trails are marked by numerous signposts with the logo of the particular route. The signposts make the routes "untraceable". To guarantee an unforgettable hiking experience, the routes are checked every year.
