High up in breathtaking nature

Sosberg is situated on a hillside in the northern Hunsrück and is an ideal starting point for a visit to the 360-metre-long Geierlay suspension rope bridge. From Sosberg it is just under 2 km on foot to the bridge, one of the most beautiful suspension rope bridges in Germany. The view into the valley is simply breathtaking. Various circular hiking trails of different lengths lead around the Geierlay. The Saar-Hunsrück Trail also runs along here. In the village is the church of St. Matthias, which used to be a small chapel and was expanded to its present size in 1769.

In the picture there is a meadow. This is next to a road.

Geierlay - The suspension rope bridge in the middle of Hunsrück, 360 m long, 80 cm wide, 100 m above ground, stretches over a wooded side valley of the Moselle between Mörsdorf and Sosberg. Cross the "Geierlay" on one of the numerous and well-signposted hiking trails! Around the "Geierlay", the "Geierlay Loop" leads from Sosberg to the visitor centre in Mörsdorf. Via the direct access path of approx. 2 km, you hike to the bridgehead of Sosberg. The Saar-Hunsrück Climb runs directly under the bridge and via the certified access paths you can of course also reach the lofty heights of the Geierlay by a short route. The "Layensteig Strimmiger Berg" dream loop near Strimmig/Liesenich can also be reached via an approximately 3.5 km hike along the Saar-Hunsrück Trail. You can also reach the suspension rope bridge by bicycle via the "Geierlay Circular Cycle Route".
