The effort will be worth it, because numerous highlights await you on the route, such as a rapid downhill run with a view of the Rhine and the castle town of Kastellaun, which with its old town is made for an espresso stop.

Author’s recommendation

A short stroll through Kastellaun and to the castle is worthwhile.
