Great! Thoroughly enjoyed our 15.6 km (or so) walk. The roads are well kept, the indicators are always there when you need them and there are plenty of places with benches to take a break along the way. The views are amazing, and definitely worth the hike. There is a variety of tracks available, so make sure to check the website where you can find all the information you need. Take the accessibility and difficulty levels serious though, especially when you're not an experienced hiker and/or have difficulties walking rough terrain.

We're slowly checking off each Traumpfad ("dream trail") that's in the books. These hiking trails are well indicated in the forest, with plenty of signs, either painted on rocks, or as shields attaches to trees. At almost all places, you can see a Traumpfade sign, even when it's just a small orange speck in the distance. This makes it more comfortable than some other hikes, where at time you're unsure what you're supposed to do at crossings or when the trails becomes faint. That's another thing: some of the Traumpfade you could do with a golf cart. I'm not saying that they're all asphalt, I'm trying to convey that the paths are in excellent condition and totally safe. No clutching to cliff faces, or descending steep hillsides on your butt. There's probably a maintenance staff behind this, because some of the railings or steps look like they're quite fresh. All the Traumpfade provide clear info on potential starting points, and indicate how to reach parking spots near said points. Summaries of the trails include length, approximate duration, assessment of difficulty, height profiles, and total climb. Now content: we've never been disappointed by any trail. They all manage to be different than the others, and they all have some gimmicks, such as impressive castles along the way, or the fact that you walk along the crater of dormant volcanoes for the majority of the route. We've been away for four Traumpfade weekends already (and we're not even German) and each set of hikes only makes us want to finish the rest of them as well. Special shout-outs to "Vulkanpfad" for being short (about 5 km) so you can squeeze it in on a travel day (if you arrive late, or if you need to leave early), and to Pyrmonter Felsensteig for being the first one we ever walked (featuring a castle and some nice rocky gorges.)
