If your Looking for something to do around the baumholder/idar oberstein area. We went here on a Saturday (during the summer). It's a nice "hike", but make sure you were walking/running shoes. Something comfortable, I made the mistake of wearing vans.

A nice hike to the ruins of this castle, which is just below Schloss Oberstein. Worth a look if you are hiking up the hill.

This is worth a view from below, a view from above and a walk to the grounds. It is a charming little castle ruin on the side of a mountain!
