The Soonwald-Nahe Nature Park extends from the heights of the Hunsrück hills, known for their harsh beauty, to the gently sloping vineyards of the sun-soaked Nahe Valley, encompassing the babbling brooks of the Soonwald.

The nature park is home to unspoiled light deciduous forests, which stand alongside blossoming forest meadows, moors, orchards, meandering streams and riverside meadows. Dry-stone walls and fallow vineyards on the slopes alongside the River Nahe provide habitat for wildlife species that thrive in warmer climes. Ancient walls hidden in the woods, castles and palaces pay homage to the Middle Ages, but the Celts and Romans once called this region their home too. The Soonwaldsteig Premium Hiking Trail and other hiking routes and cycle paths make the Soonwald-Nahe Nature Park a haven for active holidaymakers. Meanwhile, visitors to the spa resorts of Bad Kreuznach, Bad Münster am Stein-Ebernburg and Bad Sobernheim are sure to find the rest and relaxation they crave.
