HIKE TO VILLA DENIS
Slowing down and enjoying nature together
In 2020 Professor Helmut J. Schmidt, the president of TU, invites you to join us on our hike to Villa Denis! Enthusiastic hikers can walk the 26-kilometer route from TU Kaiserslautern to Villa Denis in Frankenstein. If you want to begin the day in a more relaxed way, you can start with breakfast at UNISPORT. Afterwards, the second half of the hike begins after a bus ride (UNISPORT- Waldleiningen) to our station in Waldleiningen.
Fun and games are always part of the hike! Challenges await all hikers along the way. Participants will compete against each other in different disciplines throughout, with points collected on a card. All
participants can win prizes. Hikers will find live music, wine sellers and snacks enroute to Villa Denis, making this a truly unforgettable event.
The Diemersteiner Parkfest awaits participants in the garden of Villa Denis. People who are not interested in hiking are also invited. A program with games and fun will also be provided for children.
As a result of the positive feedback from previous years, bike enthusiasts are also welcome. We offer guided bike tours for everyone with a bike. It does not matter if you prefer to go on forest trails or on a city tour with your bike. Our tours range between 20 and 30 kilometers.
Live music can also be enjoyed in the Palatinate Forest.
Children can look forward to a diverse program of pony riding, handicrafts or rappelling from the castle—the fun is guaranteed!
We are looking forward to our hike and Parkfest with you!
