Beerhike 2024

5. Homburg Beer Hike

On May 9, the 5th Homburg Beer Hike will take place, an event that the Saarland’s beer capital can no longer be imagined without.

The route is roughly the same length as last year, but not quite as mountainous. It is again divided into six stages. In addition to the start and finish, there will be another five refreshment stations with music, drinks and food. As always, the entire route will be clearly signposted. In addition to the premium Urpils beer, each station will offer another Karlsberg beer at special prices. Of course, non-alcoholic drinks will also be on tap.

Participation in the beer hike is free of charge and registration is not required. The starting point this time is the ASV Kleinottweiler sports facility (Schwannstraße 13), the destination is the SG Erbach sports facility on Eichheck (Grünewaldstraße 130). Both in the morning and in the evening, a shuttle bus service will again be set up, which will pick up those arriving at the main train station (station forecourt) every 30 minutes from around 9 a.m. and take them to the Park+Ride lot at the B 423 freeway entrance to the A6 in the immediate vicinity of the starting area. In the evening, the bus from the SG Erbach sports facility will return to the main station via the Park+Ride site at the same frequency.

The recommended meeting point at the starting point in Kleinottweiler is between 9.30 am and 10 am, the recommended start time is 10 to 11 am. However, everyone can of course choose their own walking time. At the start, there are of course plenty of opportunities to fortify yourself for the hiking tour.

The exact route has only been partially determined so far. Some sections of the route are still impassable or difficult to walk on after the rainy winter, which is why further planning will depend on the weather in the coming weeks. However, several alternative routes have already been considered so that a varied route can be offered in any case. The exact route, culinary offerings and entertainment program will be announced in mid-April. All participants can already be sure of this: The organizer will leave no stone unturned in setting up an attractive hiking course that, while challenging, will once again offer plenty of nature and regional highlights.

Intermediate stages that have already been decided are Websweiler and Jägersburg. What is also certain is that the Frankfurt classic rock band “N.S.A.” will traditionally play at the end of the hike.

There are also some prizes to be won on the beer hike, such as products from Karlsberg or tickets from the Homburg cultural society. Anyone wishing to take part will receive a stamp card at the starting point. Only the cards containing all six stage stamps will be entered into the competition. They will be collected at the finish and the prize draw will take place at the end of May. The winners will then be published on the website Legal recourse is excluded.

As in every year, nature conservation will of course also be taken into account. Hikers are requested to keep dogs on a lead and to take their waste with them or dispose of it in the appropriate waste bins.
