We choose the Hachenburger Erlebnisbrauerei as a thematically appropriate starting point and hike towards the Hachenburger Wald. Past the Rothbach grotto, we follow the Rothbach to the brewery's source of brewing water and from there on towards Gehlert. Information boards inform us about the designated water protection area, where there are numerous springs and deep wells around Gehlert. We continue to hike to the Gräbersberg (513 m) and enjoy the wonderful view from the highest point in the Hachenburger Westerwades.

The turquoise shimmering pond is idyllically situated in the middle of a forest landscape surrounded by birch trees. After enjoying this natural beauty, we make our way back to Hachenburg along the Alte Poststraße.
