Annweiler am Trifels Things to Do: 8 reviews and 30 photos
Trifels castle (see separate tip) is clearly visible from about everywhere in Annweiler, thus impossible to miss.
Unless it's a foggy day, as happened to yours truly.
Clouds were low and hid the castle. So we asked somebody who looked like a local about the right path, an the person told us, "ah yes, go over there, then left, and then turn right and climb uphill." So we went over there, turned left and then right and climbed and climbed... finally the fog thinned, the sun came out, and we had an amazing view of the three summits across the valley because we were standing on top of the wrong hill...
As you see from the photos, I gave Trifels a second try. This time I found my way;-)
The distance isn't actually far, but the paths are rather steep, so the hike isn't that easy.
For the 'softies', you can go halfway up by car, leave your car at the parking and walk only the last bit.
Opening hours of the castle:
April - September: 10 - 18
October - November and January - March: 10 - 17
Closed in December
Directions: As soon as you are at the foot of the right hill, trails are marked. All trails up will take you to the castle.
