The eponym of this premium hiking trail is the most famous offspring of the Veldenz counts, who married a daughter of King Gustav I of Sweden in 1563. The tribal history of the counts of Veldenz is very interesting, especially since they were also related to the famous Wittelsbach nobility. Their history is thematized on this 14 km long fling. The seat of the former counts, Veldenz Castle, can be admired from many vantage points. The tour starts and ends in the village of Veldenz.
