When spring arrives it's time for precious stones, mystical worlds and wildly romantic nature. Idar-Oberstein is full of variety and alive. You can visit every single step of the gemstone manufacturing process. The city is situated right in the middle of the new Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park, which you can discover in all its beauty with a ranger-guided tour. And don’t forget Germany's longest suspension bridge ‘Geierlay’, which opened in the autumn of 2015 and is only about one hour’s drive away. This is a must for those of you who have a thirst for adventure and would like to imitate Indiana Jones! Afterwards, replenish your energy in a rustic restaurant with original Idar-Oberstein rotisserie meat cooked on an open beech fire and delicious wine from the Nahe region.
