Poets were already raving here

Always along the famous Bäderlei, rocky outcrops offer the probably most beautiful view of the Kaiserbad. The wild and romantic rock path was praised by Baedecker as a unique opportunity to discover the Bad Ems landscape as early as 1846. And the famous writer Dostojewski even found it to be the most picturesque rocks in the world. Via the Emser Bäderlei you can either go directly to the Concordia Tower with one of the best views over Bad Ems, or you can turn off briefly to the Mooshütte, a meeting place for lovers. There are also the legendary Heinzelmannshöhlen, a geomorphological natural phenomenon, to marvel at.
