Description

The Mehrbachtal is full of stories. So the theme tour leads me through Mehren with its numerous half-timbered buildings. Later, the Mehrbach accompanies me on a very idyllic, shady path. I wonder if the white woman is still haunted here at the water's edge? And what about the Boller Mosch, who hits the trees with a cudgel and shouts "Mosch, Mosch"? The lost castle Mehren can also tell an exciting tale. On this round tour I walk mainly on wide forest paths, I overcome a few meters of altitude at the beginning of the walk, which I later walk down again towards Mehren. In the center of the village I come across the worth seeing pillar basilica from the 12th century, one of the oldest of its kind in the Westerwald. Finally I take a look into the old dungeon from 1547, called Bulles'Je, below the old school.
