UHSG Hiking & Nature Club Visits The Keltischer Ringwall

The beginning of May arrived with beautiful blue skies, sunshine and warm temperatures - until the day of our nature club meeting. We awoke to gray and cloudy skies, cooler temperatures, and a constant nagging drizzle. We didn't let the rain interfere with our plans, however.

Despite the less than perfect weather conditions, we enjoyed a fantastic hike around the ruins of an ancient Celtic settlement. The Keltischer Ringwall is located in Nonnweiler, about 45 minutes from the Kaiserslautern area. There are many trails through the area which vary in length and difficulty. They are speckled with interesting sculptures and informational displays. You could easily spend an entire day enjoying this area.
