The trail has everything to meet the demands of hikers, such as varied natural landscapes, natural treasures along the route and individual attractions with a high proportion of natural trails. The hosts of the neighboring municipalities invite you to take a breather and enjoy yourself.

The stages with their lengths between 19 and 27 km meet the strict criteria of the German Hiking Association for quality hiking trails and were the benchmark to be observed when developing the trail.
