The "Rengsdorfer Panoramaweg" shows itself - partly situated on the premium hiking trail and the Wäller Tour Klosterweg as well as on the Rheinsteig - from its most beautiful side.  Not only does it cross a beautiful landscape with idyllic brook valleys and charming paths, it is above all the fantastic panoramic views of the Wiedtal, the Eifel and the Rhine Valley that make up the special charm of this adventure loop.

Destination

Parking at the St. Kastor Chapel in Rengsdorf, Friedrich-Ebert-Straße

Turn-by-turn directions

We start in Rengsdorf, right next to the St. Kastor Chapel in Friedrich-Ebert-Straße, and first follow the parallel Rhine path via the Rosenberg spa gardens to the natural monument Römergraben. Above the Grillhütte we keep to the right and follow the signs to the newly built pedestrian bridge over the B256. Now we follow the Klosterweg down into the idyllic Laubach valley and past the Laubachswinkel refuge up to Ehlscheid. Once there, we cross the well-kept spa gardens with Kneipp facilities. A gastronomy geared to hikers is happy to welcome hiking guests.

Here we leave the Klosterweg and turn left onto the E3 hiking trail and walk about 6 km down into the Laubach valley to the Almblick viewpoint. During a rest we enjoy a wide view of the Wiedtal and the forest slopes opposite. Via the R1 and Me1 hiking trail we now pass the waterfall and ascend to the Elisabethhöhe refuge and enjoy great views and narrow paths above Melsbach on the Me1. Under the Wallbach bridge we follow the Rheinsteig access path up to the Rengsdorfer heights and the so-called "Westerwald-Balkon". Here we enjoy the magnificent view far into the Eifel and from the Jonashütte we start again on the Rheinsteig. The next view is provided by the rocky outcrop and the "Nonnenley" refuge above the Engelsbach Valley, until we return to the starting point in the direction of Völkerwiesenbach past the Rengsdorf open-air swimming pool and the mineral spring.

Bei herrlichem Novemberwetter sind wir die knapp 15 km gewandert. Die Farbimpressionen, die wir hatten, sind einfach nur unbeschreiblich. Indiansummer pur! Von wegen dunkler, grauer November. Mit Karte und Navi haben wir diese herrliche Runde gemacht. Viele Hütten und Bänke (die beste war auf dem Rheinsteig-Zuweg Richtung Rengsdorf) laden zum Rasten und Verweilen ein. Fernblicke zu genüge. Wenn man nicht ortskundig ist, macht das Navi auf jeden Fall Sinn, denn die Wegebeschreibung interpretiert man schon mal anders. Ich gebe Marco Verweijen Recht; man hört die Bundesstraße über einen sehr langen Zeitraum, aber das hat der Wanderung keinen Abbruch getan. Es war ein URLAUBSTAG --- einfach nur schön!!!

Mooie tocht over goed begaanbare onverharde wegen en paadjes. Enige nadeeltje dat ik ervoer was de regelmatige aanwezigheid van verkeersgeluiden. (Drukke wegen in de buurt) Niettemin heb ik deze tocht met veel plezier gelopen.

Dies ist eine mittelschwere Tour, die durch ihr landschaftliche Abwechslung besticht. Beginnend mit dem Kurpark in Rengsdorf, geht es über gute Wege, teils befestigt, teils als kleine Pfade, an Ehescheidung vorbei in Richtung Melsbach. Schöne Wälder, beeindruckende Aussichten, erlebnisreiche Überquerung von kleinen Bachläufen und einem kleinen Wasserfall, geht es Richtung Nonnenlay, wo einen eine wunderbare Aussicht erwartet. Die Tour ist sehr zu empfehlen, es gibt genügend Rastmöglichkeiten und besonders im Sommer ist die Tour angenehm zu wandern.
