Varied round tour along the Nahe river and up to rocky areas with great views. After six or nine km the tour can be shortened. With forest ghost trail for children.
A wonderful trail through an almost untouched landscape - truly a jewel among the dream loops. A premium trail rated with a fantastic 92 experience points by the German Hiking Institute. Hikers are led through original mixed forests and open meadow landscapes to sensational views time and again. You are also accompanied by the wild-romantic Nahe Valley. The Nohener-Nahe dream loop is currently the only dream loop with a direct rail link.
Another special feature along the way is the Waldgeistersteig (Forest Ghost Trail): it was originally created by Nohen children, the “forest ghosts”, and could then be integrated into the dream loop. Today, in addition to various play opportunities, this section of the trail also offers nice resting places for all hikers.
The Nohener-Nahe dream loop is one of the DVV permanent hiking trails, start maps are available at Café Allerhand and the Speisekammer restaurant in Nohen, also at the AGIP petrol station in Birkenfeld.
The wine cabinet with Nahe wine (white and red) with a view of the Nahe river. So have some small change with you, bring cheese cubes and enjoy.

Information for dog owners:
Level of difficulty: medium to medium difficult, little tarmac, many narrow paths, well suited for an adventurous dog walk over uneven terrain
Distracting stimuli: Over the course of the Nohener Nahe loop, country or district roads have to be crossed from time to time, roads can sometimes be heard, but this does not detract from the hiking experience. There is a medium volume of hikers on the premium trail, so you should expect to encounter oncoming hikers.
Water/shade: The Nohener Nahe loop leads mainly through wooded terrain. Direct access to water is available to hikers and their four-legged friends just before Hohen at the old mill and at “Nahe Island”.
Rubbish bins/cleanliness: On the Nohener Nahe loop, the principle of “what you take on the trail goes home with you” is applied as far as possible. There are only rubbish bins available at selected points. The waste from dogs and humans should not be left on/along the trail so that the enjoyment of the trail is maintained for all.
You can reach Nohen by leaving the A 62 at the Birkenfeld exit. From here take the B 41 in the direction of Birkenfeld / Idar-Oberstein.
