Experience the Hachenburg Westerwald

Kleiner Wäller "Löwenspur 1 orange"-Hachenburg - walking trail

The orange path requires average fitness, sturdy shoes and fun on steep ascents and descents. It goes along the Great Nister through the deep green, spacious Nistertal. There are steep-like passages along the way, narrow and winding places that could pose a challenge to hikers who are afraid of heights. Past the Nistermühle - the oldest Hachenburger mill - (this is where Konrad Adenauer hid from persecution by the National Socialists) you hike up to great views over the Nister. From there it goes back through the historic city center of Hachenburg with its old market and the lion fountain - the perfect place for a rest before it goes through the castle garden to the destination of the path.

Experience a lot on the Lake District Cycle Route (I)

The center of the lake district is the Dreifelder Weiher, because it is the largest of the lakes, two kilometers long and up to 800 meters wide. Here I can swim and row, and I can also rent a pedal boat. With a little time, I go on the hiking trail with 16 display boards, on which a lot can be read about the nature and the people here. Afterwards I look for a nice place to rest and eat, for example the cozy café-restaurant "Haus am See". Another highlight of the region is the large adventure playground near Steinen-Dreifelden. This forest playground entices the offspring to play for hours: a nice reward after a third of the tour. There are numerous benches and a shelter, as well as a fireplace for barbecue lovers and, of course, playground equipment such as large slides, swings and more. The Freilingen miniature golf course is suitable for the whole family. It is located at the Postweiher and offers drinks and snacks in addition to twelve lanes. The village of Freilingen also has a lido at the Postweiher.
