Historic Herrstein – lively middle ages

The medieval town of Herrstein will entice you into a charming and idyllic setting from the past. Your journey into the past will take you back between 500 and 300 years – far away from the hectic lives we lead today. Explore the enchanted alleyways and marvel at the numerous, wonderfully restored half-timbered houses situated in this beautiful Hunsrück location. Our tour guides will show you the tower, church, town walls, the “Schinderhannes” tower and many other exciting locations. First-class hiking tours can be enjoyed on the “Traumschleife” medieval trail, which starts and finishes in Herrstein.

Our tip: Experience the vibrant market activities during the “Schinderhannes Festival” (second week in September) and the “Martini Market” (first week in November).

Guided tours:
