When Is the Best Time
Recommended throughout the year. We prefer May because many different flowers are in bloom especially along this trail and October with the autumn foliage. The second reason for April/May and Sept./Oct. it is the right temperature for the filled cupboard with wine along the trail. This is a highlight of the trail. It would be too hot in summer and in winter it is empty.

Location and Tips
There are 111 hiking trails in Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate called "Traumschleifen"; that means a dream of circular hiking trails. These trails are perfectly marked with the next intermediate hiking target information, the distance you've already hiked, how long you still have to walk, and the next highlight on your trail. The trails are rich in variety and always even better than expected.
The trail is 12 km long, up and downhill gaining 400 meters, taking roughly 4 hours. In 2015 it was one of the ten most beautiful hiking trails in Germany. It is recommended to hike clockwise, and this makes sense if you like to try the wine ;) However, there is only one wine booth on the whole trail. The wine bottles are € 2.50 each; three types to select from - coins are needed. This booth runs on the honour system with a dropbox. There is a camera installed but unknown if monitored. The booth also provides glasses. Have a break here tables and benches are provided. Along the rest of the trail, you will see vast fields, unspoilt forests and overlooks. It's a tranquil walk without any traffic noise. Toward the end, there are some interactive sections like swings and musical instruments. This will be a good hike for the whole family. Another advantage of this trail is the station in Nohen. It is the only dream loop which is accessible by train. After the hike, we had a break at Cafe Allerhand, which I highly recommend. They offer a few homemade meals and different cakes; delicious and affordably priced
