Up and down, the Wiedweg, sometimes as a path, sometimes as a trail, leads over and along the Wied in a varied and eventful way. Attractive views are guaranteed!

The Wiedweg is divided into seven sections and can be hiked individually: The Wiedweg is a "modern classic" among the Westerwald hiking trails. Making it a "Quality Trail Wanderbares Deutschland" certified by the German Hiking Association was a special challenge. The Westerwald Association marked the first route back in 1992, and in May 2009 the association opened a newly designed adventure trail along the Wied. Especially in the upper reaches, numerous changes were made to the route in the area of the nature reserve. The hiker is now guided through the beauties of the Westerwald as close to nature and water as possible. Up and down it goes through meadows and forests with unforgettable views on the approximately 100 kilometre long Wiedweg.
