Wild and romantic rock landscape above Bad Ems
Already in the 19th century, during the Romantic period, the Bäderlei with its rocky landscape high above Bad Ems was an extremely popular destination for excursions. Numerous vantage points, the Heinzelmannshöhlen as well as the Mooshütte, then as now a meeting point for lovers, offer the opportunity to enjoy the landscape. Karl Baedecker, pioneer of travel guides, also praised the rocks of the Bäderlei, as did the famous writer Dostojewski, who called them "the most beautiful in the world".
The Bäderlei is best reached via these hiking trails:
