“Closed Nov 16 - Mar 14, still a great hike”
Review of Felsenkirche

We were unable to go inside the church, as it is closed from Nov 16 - Mar 14. The hike itself was great -- not too strenuous. There are several starting points for the hike, but the easiest to find it right behind the tourist info center at Hauptstraße 419, 55743 Idar-Oberstein, Germany. Continue above the church for even better views of the town!

Settled in a cave in the side of a cliff the church is just a marvelous example of what can be done when "faith" or remorse moves you. If you're in the area be sure to stop and hike the stairs to see the church, and then venture up to the church tower for the view. Amazing place.

After a short hike up stairs, you will arrive at a little church built into the side of a mountain. The church seems to be under construction. The panoramic view of Idar-Oberstein from above the church is grand, making it worth the €2 entrance fee.

Enjoyed our little hike up through a little town to this church in Idar-Oberstein. There's a nice story behind the construction of this church though it is sort of sad. The view from the church is quite nice.

It was really impressive to see the church just sitting in the rock. You hike up through the village below as no cars or trucks can get there. The view is awesome of the village below. We also got to hear the bells chime. I think I would like to go back for a Christmas service. If you have anyone with walking trouble, take your time as it is a climb. I would not advise strollers either.
