The Westerwald-Steig is a trail with magnificent views. It spans 235 kilometres from Herborn to Rheinbrohl over mountains, romantic gorges and alpine climbing courses, alternating between wide paths for relaxing strolls to narrow paths to test your balance on. There is always something interesting to discover along this trail – a quaint river valley, an imposing abbey, prehistoric excavations and limestone caves or a cosy guesthouse – the variety is endless.

Breite Wege zum Entspannen wechseln sich mit schmalen Pfaden zum Balancieren ab. Am Wegesrand warten viele Überraschungen. Mal ist es ein uriges Bachtal, mal ein stattliches Kloster mit spannender Geschichte, urzeitliche Ausgrabungen und Tropfsteinhöhlen oder ein gemütliches Gasthaus.
