Pfalz hike: Drachenfels

Weather forecast for coming weekend looks amazing, so a great opportunity to do another hike in the Pfalz! To get an impression of this hike, see the following web link and look up 'Rundwanderung 56'

http://www.wanderportal-pfalz.de/Start-Wandern.html

Our hike will be somewhat different, as I want to avoid the wide forest roads, but we will make a half-way stop at the Lambertskreuzhuette, where you can buy food:

http://www.lambertskreuz.de/waldhaus.html

Nevertheless, I do advise everyone to take along some food and especially sufficient water. Sunday will be a very warm day!

As always, wear good shoes and outdoors attire. My hikes are not a stroll in the park.

Starting point is the Restaurant 'Zum Saupferch'

We will meet at the parking nearby.

Please see the web site of this restaurant and CAREFULLY read about 'Anfahrt.

http://saupferch.de/

This place is located at the end of a side-road of route 37 between Kaiserslautern and Bad Durkheim.

Start time hike: 11.00 sharp


Duration: approx. 5 hrs.

Getting there: by car

Approximately 1 hr. from Heidelberg

Approximately 30 minutes from Kaiserslautern

Approximately 40 minutes from Mannheim

Make sure to start out in time!

    Funny: this is the first time we had more or less the same hike twice in the same months :-) I had not checked the exact itinerary of Martin's hike, but the pictures that were uploaded recently show that it overlapped partially.
