Not far from the starting point is the "Schokkapelle", which the locals refer to as Armesünderkapelle. There is a slate in front of the chapel where viewpoints on the Eifel are marked. Soon it goes over forest paths down to the Mörsdorfer Bach. Behind the Pulgermühle the trail starts through the Flaumbachtal through an open meadow landscape along the Waldsaum. This is followed by three klettersteigen: Burgberg, Kleine Kanzel and Schieferstollen. For those who do not want to embark on an adventure, diversions are provided on site. The path then continues into the vast forest area past old slate tunnels, slate dumps and partially reconstructed houses of the former slate mine workers. On a bench you can recover from the long climb from the Flaumbachtal and enjoy a wide view of the Eifel.

POI 2 - Heimat Museum.

In Mittelstrimmig you can visit this museum for free, which is housed in a former electric mill that was built in 1949. This flour mill was used until 1959. The museum gives an impressive overview of the life and work of the Hunsrück people from Roman times to the present. Numerous finds from Roman colonization are presented in this way. But also issues about flax growing and the various stages of wood processing are presented here so that visitors can get to know the culture and tradition of the Hunsrück.
