Excursions (comp. also pp. 291, 290). Above Echternacherbriick, on
the left bank of the Sure, on a projecting ledge of the Ernzerberg (1095 ft.),
stands the modern Liborius Chapel (25 min.; red way-marks), affording a
beautiful view; close by are the Liborius-Kiause, cut out of the rock, and
the Ernzberger Hof. From the chapel we skirt the mountain to the W.,
through wood, crossing the valleys of the Vélkerbach and the Gutenbach,
to (11/2 hr.) the Tiirkenkopf and to the Schweigestdlle, where there is a
Roman inscription (adjacent, the Schankweiler Klause, p. 291). Thence
we descend the Weilerbach-Tal to (/2 hr.) the station of Weilerbach
(p. 291). — On the hill at the upper end of the Weilerbach-Tal, 4 hr.
from the station, lies Ferschweiler (1215 ft.), 1/2 hr. to the E. of which is
the village of Priim zur Lay, opposite a ruined castle
