In knowledge, I already take the first break to look at Schönstein Castle. The Heister chapel, one of the oldest of its kind, and the Catholic parish church of the Elevation of the Cross, begun in the year 1000, are also worth a look. In Hachenburg I am greeted by the castle, which today is the Deutsche Bundesbank University. The gilded Sayn heraldic lion stands on the Alter Markt. The Stone House (today "Gasthaus zur Krone") is also worth seeing. It is worth walking a little around the beautiful place. On the Gräbersberg near Alpenrod I climb the lookout tower and have a meal in the serviced Alpenroder Hütte. The observation tower gives me wonderful views. A short time later I come across the Wiedquelle near Linden. We continue to Dreifelden and its pond of the same name. Here I swim a bit and then lie down on the lawn for a moment. When I come to Staudt later, there is another place to rest with a playground on the fairground.

Safety instructions

For bags and backpacks, not only the back offers space on a bike tour - the weight of the equipment should be distributed over several parts of the body and bike. Wind, rain or sun can lead to very different temperature sensations on the bike - a cold can best be avoided with professional cycling clothing. On a multi-day tour, you should always have a change of clothes on hand to be prepared for any eventuality. In addition to other important pieces of equipment, the necessary tools and repair utensils should not be forgotten. At high speeds, it's easy to take a wrong turn on a bike tour: traditional and modern aids such as a bike map or a GPS device are used for orientation. You should always have a small emergency kit with you.


There is a lot to discover, for example Montabaur with its numerous sights. Furthermore, there is also the visitor mine in Steinebach
