Coastal Route Rheinhessen - Rundweg Siefersheim - Wöllstein - Neu-Bamberg

The circular route Siefersheim - Wöllstein - Neu-Bamberg leads along and over the "volcanic" islands of Hornberg and Ölberg.

The coastal path Rheinhessen offers the rare opportunity of a time travel into the geological history of Rheinhessen. The whole region was flooded by a subtropical sea 30 million years ago. Here in this region the former coastline ran with the most varied coastal forms, numerous peninsulas, bays and an archipelago of volcanic underground.

Route guidance

From the starting point in Wöllstein (Barsac-Allee / Schulrat-Spang-Straße) the signposted hiking trail leads to the Wöllsteiner Schützenhaus. Over an old railway bridge you cross the Appelbach and reach the former quarries at the Ölberg, where rhyolitic volcanic rocks are open-minded. The path continues through the wild and romantic Wöllsteiner Tälchen. Along the way you can admire sculptures of the "fairytale path". The refuge "Am Weiher" at the Katzensteiger mill invites you for a first break. Along the Appelbach it goes to Neu-Bamberg. The steep ascent to the castle ruins is worthwhile alone for the view and a short detour to the castle. Downhill it goes through the historic streets in the center. Here you will find oyster beds on which houses of the old village center were built. Behind Neu-Bamberg we go up into the vineyards. Past the legendary Ajaxturm the path leads through nature reserve and vineyards to Siefersheim. In a sand pit you can discover the sands of a former beach, later you pass a petrified surf cliff. From here, a detour to the wine village Siefersheim is worthwhile. Back on the track, the path continues over the Höllberg, which offers more beautiful views of the countryside. Down the hill you pass the water tower, the landmark of Wöllstein, before returning to the starting point.
