I'm standing at the Rotenhain train station and decide to pay a visit to the nearby Stöffel Park first. In this quarry adventure park, the world's first mouse was found with an age of 25 million years. Then it goes back and my next destination is the Wied spring in Linden. I follow the markings to the Dreifelder Weiher, the largest of the lakes in the Westerwald lake district, and enjoy the wonderful natural landscape of the Wiedaue on the tour. Near Altenkirchen I come across the 100-year-old Bismarck Tower, which can be visited on the first Sunday of every month. The Alvensleben tunnel then awaits in Burglahr. Ore was mined here until 1930, today it is open to visitors. The handicraft museum in Waldbreitbach, next to an oil mill, also arouses my curiosity. I can visit it on Saturdays and Sundays and take a coffee break in the rustic rooms. The further way leads me directly to Neuwied, where the Wied flows into the Rhine.

With Hachenburg we choose one of the most beautiful towns in the Westerwald as a starting point and linger briefly on the old market with its dreamy half-timbered backdrop before we make our way south. Soon one of the many bathing opportunities that we will encounter along the WW1 awaits us near Maroth with its forest lake. Via Selters we continue through a landscape of fields and forests to Sessenbach, where a visit to the planetarium is highly recommended. In Höhr-Grenzhausen, the next highlight awaits us with the largest ceramics museum in Europe, before we enjoy the Weserwald in all its beauty on our journey through the almost paradisiacal area of the Nassau Nature Park. Our ride up to the Fuckskaute is going to be pretty sporty again. For this we are rewarded with a magnificent view from the highest elevation in the Westerwald. Shortly before Hachenburg we recover and cover the last kilometers.

I start with the ascent to the nearby Fuchskaute (657 meters) and enjoy the view. I can eat and drink something in the local inn. Then I start the tour towards Bad Marienberg. I look around the Kurpark and relax on the barefoot path and in the apothecary garden. Then I visit the interesting basalt park and take a detour to the Hedwig's Tower at the wildlife park. Here I am also rewarded with a wide view. I could also try the climbing garden, but I keep going because I want to visit the famous Stöffel Park with its many offers. I continue through Hachenburg, the "Pearl of the Westerwald", where I am enchanted by the market and the beautiful half-timbered houses. After a few kilometers I reach the Marienstatt monastery. The confluence of the Kleine Nister and the Große Nister follows at Heimborn-Ehrlich. Finally, I arrive in knowledge and explore the castle and the Heister Chapel, which is well worth seeing.
