Cycle paths

In and around Baumholder there are two larger cycle paths, each with a route logo. Since it is constantly up and down in the community of Baumholder, some altitude meters have to be overcome.
Most of the routes run through paved dirt roads. Only rarely does a piece of the road run on under-traffic roads.

Since March 2005 there is a cycling and hiking map on a scale of 1:25.000, in which both cycle paths are listed. In addition, the map contains the hiking trails in the municipality of Baumholder.

The map is available at the city office, Phone 06783-981140, at the tourist information office in the cultural center Goldener Engel, Phone 06783-7043951 or at the municipal administration Baumholder, Phone 06783-810,
