The center of the lake district is the Dreifelder Weiher, because it is the largest of the lakes, two kilometers long and up to 800 meters wide. Here I can swim and row, and I can also rent a pedal boat. With a little time, I go on the hiking trail with 16 display boards, on which a lot can be read about the nature and the people here. Afterwards I look for a nice place to rest and eat, for example the cozy café-restaurant "Haus am See". Another highlight of the region is the large adventure playground near Steinen-Dreifelden. This forest playground entices the offspring to play for hours: a nice reward after a third of the tour. There are numerous benches and a shelter, as well as a fireplace for barbecue lovers and, of course, playground equipment such as large slides, swings and more. The Freilingen miniature golf course is suitable for the whole family. It is located at the Postweiher and offers drinks and snacks in addition to twelve lanes. The village of Freilingen also has a lido at the Postweiher.

The tour is about 34 kilometers long, I start in the center of Bad Marienberg. For this place I should take some time, either before or after the tour. So there is a game park and a climbing forest on the outskirts of town, in the city the Park of the Senses and the spa park with apothecary garden and barefoot path. In addition, the town offers a basalt park that can be visited. The tour leads me through the valley of the Black Nister to Hahn and Dreisbach. Over fields and through woods it goes on to the Wiesensee. I reach Stahlhofen am Wiesensee with its listed old school. Now the path leads me sometimes closer, sometimes farther around the lake to Pottum. From here I cycle on a big loop via Hellenhahn-Schellenberg (you can see among other things half-timbered houses), Fehl-Ritzhausen and Großseifen (old schoolhouse) back to Bad Marienberg.
