The 368 m high Remigiusberg in the county of Kusel offers a very beautiful panoramic view over the Kuseler Land and the western part of the North Palatinate mountain range. In addition to the provost church St. Remigius, the only one of the former provostry that is still preserved, the ruins of the Michelsburg Castle are also located on the Remigiusberg, which is open to the public and can be visited all year round. Both buildings are close to each other and are only separated by a shallow depression.

      Location: The recording point is located at the Provost Church on the Remigiusberg. Here, directly at the separately standing cross at noon in autumn around 04:00 p.m. in the back light, a great viewpoint for the shot is created. Approx. 10 m away from the separate cross you have a very good view towards the cross and the church, but also to the left with the hilly landscape. You can reach this point of view by walking from the footpath to the church up to the cross on the left.

Directions and location:

Coming via the motorway A62 (from Landstuhl in the direction of Trier) take exit 7 Kusel and then turn right onto the B420. At the next crossing turn right again in the direction of Schellweiler. In the village turn left and follow the road to Etschberg. Via Etschberg you reach Haschbach at the Remigiusberg. There a well signposted road leads up to the hiking parking lot at Remigiusberg. From the entrance of the parking lot, an approx. 100 m long footpath leads up to the provost church on the right, on the left an equally long steep footpath through the forest to Michelsburg Castle.
