Breunigweiler will open its annual horror hiking route at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 25.

The Pfrimmtal Touristik association hosts its widely successful and spooky Halloween event Oct. 24 and 25 on the sports field in Breunigweiler, which is located about 40 minutes from Ramstein.

“We will set up a circus tent, which will turn into a giant horror arena, decorated with bloodthirsty accessories and typical Halloween items,” said Albert Koch from the PFT association. The Halloween event is held in cooperation with the RPR1 radio station.

The Halloween weekend will begin at 8 p.m. Oct. 24 with a horror concert by the Modern Sound Bigband from Bockenheim. Admission fee is €6. Finger food and beverages will be served in the tent.

At 6:30 p.m. Oct. 25, the horror trip will continue with a 1.8 kilometer nighttime hike, featuring animals, ghosts, witches, monsters and bandits.

Advanced tickets for the hike are recommended. The first group will start the horror hike at 6:30 p.m. More groups of hikers will follow every 30 minutes until 11 p.m.

“The horror hike will take about an hour. We ask visitors to wear sturdy shoes,” Koch said.

The hike is not appropriate for children under 12.

After hikers return to Breunigweiler safe and sound, the after-show party will take place in the circus tent.

“Here, horror trip participants can relax from creepy moments and eat and drink something served by our PFT members,” Koch said.

The party band Colorblind will provide musical entertainment. The show program will also feature performances by dance and vaulting groups.

“We had a total of 2,100 visitors last year and hope to even lure more this year,” Koch said.

Tickets for the horror trip cost €6. Advance tickets are available at Pfrimmtal-Touristik. For tickets or for more information, call Koch at 0152-387-59570 or visit www.pfrimmtaltourisitk.de.
