Hiking on the Druidensteig

The Druidensteig offers you over 30 geo-information points with insights into the mining history and geological features of the region. Immerse yourself in the Westerwald-Lahn-Taunus Geopark and explore the mining museum in Herdorf-Sassenroth, the Bindweide visitor mine and the Westerwald Landscape Museum. Outstanding highlights of the trail with its marvellous panoramic views are the Ottoturm, the Steinerother Kopf and the Barbaraturm.  

You hike through a varied landscape with lush, species-rich forests and in an area rich in springs and water. The towns and villages along the trail blend harmoniously into the landscape, convey a sense of closeness to the land and its people and offer you rest and refreshment stops on every stage. The return to the starting point is possible on every section thanks to the good bus and train connections.
