We hiked the Karlstalschlucht in Trippstadt.
It’s a pretty little river and hiking area.
There’s not really any parking. We’ve always been lucky to have room on the side of the road. There is more parking in town and you can walk down.
The Karlstalschlucht is a great family hike and lovely for photo opportunities.
A square, black iron sign at the entrance to Karlstal reminiscent of an important visitor: “King Ludwig I of Bavaria, Grand Duke Louis III of Hesse, and Archduchess Hildegard of Austria together with high wake dwelt on 9 August 1862. Karlstal.”
The kids enjoyed the sound of the water and looking at leaves and moss, and BIG ROCKS.
Lots of great photo opportunities! Every time we go, we see girls in impossibly high heels and pretty clothes trying to pose while not getting dirty or sinking into the mud.
It’s a nice easy walk for families. The path is mostly even and safe, though strollers might be difficult.
There are benches to rest or sit and watch the world go by.
Trippstadt Karlstalschlucht is about 30 minutes from Ramstein AFB and 1.5 hours from Spangdahlem.
