Thalfang is located in the western part of the wooded Hunsrück region. The plateau, with its farmland and valleys, is a true natural beauty which has remained virtually unchanged since time immemorial. For beautiful and cultural diversity visit the sights in the vicinity of the Hunsrück, the Eifel and Mosel, the Saar, the Nahe and the Rhine. Not far from Thalfang you can find a number of ancient strongholds, for example, the ruins of Castle Dhronecken (3 km) in the valley of the small Dhron. And if you're in the twin towns of Bernkastel-Kues on the Mosel (about 20 km) you definitely have to visit the ruins of Landshut Castle. In the vicinity of the park there are also several hiking and wine routes. 35 km (walking) distance away lies the city of Trier which was once the capital of the Roman Empire and therefore is said to be the 2nd Rome. The following cities are also worth a visit: Traben-Trarbach (38 km) is situated in a bend of the Mosel and has a number of artifacts from Celtic and Roman times. In the vicinity of Fischbach (35) on the German Edelsteinstrasse (a few kilometers from Idar-Oberstein), there is a copper mine which in the time of Napoleon was one of the largest known copper mines in Germany. The Peterberg leisure center (Nonnweiler-Braunhausen, 25 km) has a 1-km-long summer toboggan run which invites you to enjoy some sport. With this modern system you just go to the top of the 584-meter-high Peterberg and begin your adventure (but don't forget to brake!) The course contains turns, bends and jumps and offers great fun for both children and adults. Furthermore, there is an exciting show with 30 actors and more than 20 horses. Realistic fights and spectacular special effects make the show a truly impressive event. Wireless microphones and a 1000 watt sound system ensure excellent acoustics for the up to 1000 spectators. Breathtaking nature games, exciting shows and adventures await guests in the more than 750,000 m² Eifelpark. You can also enjoy a variety of wildlife here including bears, ibex and many other wild animals. The potential of this area is too great to mention. For more information, each guest will receive an information booklet detailing all the opportunities around the Ferienpark.
