The track crosses the gorgeous and versatile landscapes of the Palatinate: Coming from Worms, leaving behind the Rhine valley, crossing the natural park Palatinate Forest, reaching Kaiserslautern and continuing to Glan-Münchweiler. Remarkable differences in altitude only have to be overcome between the lake ‘Eiswoog’ and Alsenborn, which is a track section of about 5 km.
The cycle way is named after the important emperor Friedrich I, better known as Barbarossa, who had a relevant impact on the history of the Palatinate during the 12th century. Beside different castle ruins the ‘Kaiserpfalz’ in Kaiserslautern ranks among the significant evidence of his reign. You will be invited to stay by many more sights and possibilities to take a break along the track. The signage shows the stylized emperor Barbarossa on red background.
