The loop starts at the castle not far from the church in Lontzen. The first single trail can be reached via a beautiful hollow way that leads trough the village to Busch. The slopes that you will find here can easily be avoided if you are unsure. Enjoy the beauty of nature through gravel paths and short trail-like passages. Shortly afterwards, you will pass two quarries on a gravel path that offers beautiful views. The last meadow path leads you right back to the castle of Lontzen.
