Directly on the border between Rhineland-Palatinate and Lorraine, right where the truly charming recreational landscape of the Pfälzerwald Biosphere Reserve and Park meets the northern part of the Vosges mountains - that is where you will find the state-approved climatic spa of Eppenbrunn, also known as the "gateway to the Wasgau" which is a Franco-German hill range in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate and the French departments of Bas-Rhin and Moselle (source: Wikipedia).
Eppenbrunn offers a wide range of numerous leisure possibilities such as enjoyable hikes and excursions - to the Lourdes grotto, to the Devil's Table or to nearby Bitche in France. The village of Eppenbrunn is surrounded by a fairytale forest, which is the home of a particularly rich world of flora and fauna.
Especially impressive is the formation of the Altschlossfelsen ("Old Castle Rocks"), an almost 1,500 metre long rock wall formed of bunter sandstone - the longest in the Palatinate. The Dianabild ("picture of Diana") carved into the rock reminds us of the passage of the Romans.
There is a spaciously laid out park in the centre of the village.
The Altschlosspfad leads through a magnificent natural landscape through the Palatinate Forest and culminates at the natural and cultural monument Altschlossfelsen. The mighty orange-red rock towers of red sandstone, which accompany the path for 1.5 km, fascinate with their varied colour compositions ...
