The 137 kilometre long hiking trail, which at some points takes you through some of the most stunning routes to be enjoyed in the Nahe river holiday region, begins in Idar-Oberstein and leads via Niederhosenbach – the family seat and possibly the birthplace of Hildegard von Bingen – onwards to Bad Sobernheim. The monastery ruins of Disibodenberg are located not far from here, which is where Hildegard spent nearly 40 years of her life. The pilgrim trail ends in Bingen am Rhein. The Rupertsberg vaulted cellar is witness to the final movements and work of Hildegard von Bingen: In 1150 the saint founded the Rupertsberg Abbey, which became the focal point of her work for 29 years. The final stops along this ecumenical pilgrimage are the Hildegard Shrine at the Pilgrimage Church of St. Hildegard Rüdesheim-Eibingen, and the Abbey of St. Hildegard Eibingen.
