Long Description:
Der Burgenweg ist 7,5km lang. Wanderzeit ca. 2,5h.
"Der Annweilerer Burgenweg führt von Annweiler durch die Naturschönheit des südlichen Pfälzerwaldes hinauf zu den drei Burgen, die im Hochmittelalter in den Brennpunkt der europäischen Geschichte rückten. Die Verwahrung der Reichskleinodien, also der Herrschaftszeichen des Reiches, verdeutlicht die Ausnahmestellung des Trifels als stark befestigtes Refugium. Die Burgen Anebos und Scharfenberg (Münz) waren Sitze von Ministerialen, die den Schutz der Hauptburg und der Reichskleinodien versahen. Ihre Lage auf dem Grat eines Felsenriffs, prägt seither die Landschaft und zählt heute, trotz der baulichen Verluste durch Verfall und Zerstörung, zu den beindruckendsten Burgsilhouetten Deutschlands. Der Burgenweg wurde 2010 vom Deutschen Wanderinstitut als Premiumweg ausgezeichnet. Die Wanderung führt auf schönen Pfaden durch den Trifelswald und bietet immer wieder herrliche Ausblicke auf den Pfälzerwald, auf Burgen und Felsen und in die Rheinebene." (Quelle: (visit link)

"The Annweilerer Burgenweg leads from Annweiler by the natural beauty of the southern Palatinate Forest up to the three castles that moved into the focal point of European history in the Middle Ages. The custody of the imperial regalia, which is the symbol of power of the kingdom, highlights the exceptional position of the Trifels as heavily fortified refuge. The castles Anebos and Scharfenberg were seats of ministry officials, who provided the protection of the main castle and the crown jewels. Their position on the ridge of rock riffs, imprinted since then the landscape and today, despite the structural losses due to decay and destruction, the most impressive castle silhouettes Germany. The Burgenweg was awarded in 2010 by the German Hiking Institute as Premiumweg. A hike on beautiful paths through the Trifelswald and always offers wonderful views of the Palatinate Forest, castles and rocks and in the Rhine valley."
