Leisure time

There are a range of possibilities for enjoying your free time between the forests and meadows of the area.

The Hunsrück museum offers an introduction to the natural and cultural history of the Hunsrück region. Are you interested in historical figures such as the Dukes of Simmern, or are you a fan of the legendary outlaw Schinderhannes? If so, you will find pictures and information in the Neues Schloss. In addition, a tour of the Friedrich Karl Ströher exhibition will give valuable insights into one of the most famous artists of the area.

The library in the Neues Schloss is just the place for bookworms. A wide range of material is available for all needs and occasions. Whatever the weather - take a break in the comfortable reading corner.

Take a tour of the town, from the Schinderhannes Tower (the town landmark) to the two churches and the Neues Schloss. Enjoy the view of the town from the bastion, one of the last remaining parts of the old town fortifications. The "Cultural and historical town route" brochure will guide you and provide comprehensive information.

You will find painstakingly restored traditional areas that demand a longer visit. Churches, monasteries and ruins on a picturesque landscape - the Hunsrück region around Simmern is worth a visit!
