“Great hike and great view”
Review of Felsenkirche

Reviewed 25 May 2014

The site of the church built into the mountain is really awesome to see. We plugged the address from this site into our GPS, but it will lead you to private parking only. You must park near the pedestrian town center (we paid a few euro for 4 hours) and follow the signs through the town to Felsenkirche. It is probably about 100 steps to the top, but there are plenty of places to rest along the way if needed. Our 3 and 5 year old did not have a problem with the stairs and were very excited about the whole experience. The entrance price of 2euro for adults and free for our kiddos was very reasonable. We spent about 15 minutes exploring the church and enjoying the view from the balcony. If you're up to it I would recommend the extra .8km walk to the top of the mountain to visit the castle.

Small church set in mountainside. Strolled through the beautiful small town and up the stairs, then walkways, and more stairs! When you finally make it to the top the small church is quiet & quaint! Go up a few additional stairs to the outside balcony and be sure to take some panoramic pictures of the town below!

We stopped in Idar-Oberstein on our last day in Germany on our way up to Frankfurt. The whole town is beautiful and worth a walk through. The walk up to the church may be hard for some people but it's certainly doable and there are benches along the way. It's cool to walk into the main entrance of the church through the tunnel built in the rock. The whole history of the church is fascinating and there are some amazing views of the top. If you are nearby, it's worth stopping by to check out!

Once you arrive in the town square filled with shops and restaurants, its a moderate walk up some 100 steps to the church in the Mountain. Visit the church and then go have lunch.
