Quality Trail "Traumtour Diamant" (Diamond Dream Tour)

Start/Finish: Diamond Cutter Museum Brücken
Address: Hauptstrasse 47, 66904 Brücken
Length: 15.2 kilometers
Website: www.vgog.de
Phone: +49 (6373) 5040

The „Traumtour Diamant“ is a quality trail, awarded with the certificate ‘Qualitätsweg Wanderbares Deutschland’. This certificate stands for carefree hiking enjoyment. The tour offers you a varied route, user-friendly trail marking, many close to nature trails, and paths to locations with an exciting history.
The award-winning hiking trail got its name “Traumtour Diamant” because of the Western Palatinate diamond cutting industry, which had its center in the village of Brücken since 1888. In the 1930s, more than 2500 people were employed in this sector in the Western Palatinate.
The trail takes you through a circular route over a distance of about 15 km (9.4 miles), through the Ohmbachtal communities of Brücken and Ohmbach. Here you can follow the traces of the stones. A fascinating view awaits you at and around the “Watchtower”. Other stony witnesses are old boundary stones from 1786 and the soil-covered concrete remains of old bunkers of the Siegfried Line. Of particular interest is the Diamond Cutter Museum in Brücken. Here, on Sundays, you can look over the shoulders of cutters working on diamonds. The museum with its connected gastronomy is the starting and endpoint of your hiking experience. Worth seeing is the coffee roastery in the historic mill building of the Reismühle Krottelbach. Guided visits and roasting demonstrations can be booked there. In addition, the courtyard of the Landcafé offers a fantastic backdrop.
The quality trail offers the perfect hiking experience for general interested, experienced hikers who want to walk attractive, varied trails. A mix of cultural and natural attractions along the way makes you forget everyday life!
