Author’s recommendation

A visit to the late medieval castle ruins of Sporkenburg, located about 1 kilometer south of Eitelborn, is worthwhile.

NEW from September 2019: The almost 10 km long hiking trail Wäller Schnippel connects the Wäller tours Augst and Elberthöhen.

Turn-by-turn directions

It is advisable to start the tour from the Neuhäusel-Ost parking lot. From here, the tour first heads towards Kadenbach, past the Kadenbach tennis court through orchard meadows with a great view over Eitelborn and Kadenbach. After crossing the Binnbach valley you reach the edge of Eitelborn. The route around the village is a gentle ascent, alternating between open country with paddocks and mixed forest regions. At about km 5 you enter the picturesque forest at the Schlossberg, after another 1.5 km you will see the Sporkenburg ruins on a spur of the Schlossberg, which are ideal for a rest (rucksack food!). After this rest, you can take a leisurely descent along the Theilenbach until you reach the Emsbach above Bad Ems and cross the L 329. A leisurely ascent follows the Emsbach to Arzbach. Here you can take a break in the Bierhaus, a restaurant where a brewery was operated until the beginning of World War I. Now a hard ascent to Mühlberg follows. Once at the top, the effort is rewarded with fantastic views over Arzbach (with Roman tower), then again Eitelborn and Neuhäusel. One reaches the new grill hut Kadenbach, a little later the chapel Maria in der Augst. This chapel was rebuilt around 2000 by the Verkehrs- und Verschönerungsverein on its own initiative on a historical site. A visit is worthwhile in any case. With a view over the Taunus mountains, you can take the Sonnenweg back to your starting point.

Wir sibd heute die Tour gewandert und waren in ca. 4 Stunden die Strecke gegangen (zzgl. Pause). Der Berg den Limes hoch war schon recht anspruchsvoll, aber es hat sich gelohnt. Wir werden nun mehr Strecken im Westerwald testen.

Wir haben die Tour sehr genossen! Wunderschön, idyllisch und abwechslungsreich. Eine liebliche Strecke. Bächlein, Burgruine, kuschelige Täler, Kapelle, viel Grün und schöne Aussichten. Ab Bierhaus wird es recht anstrengend (aber besser, als hier bergab gehen zu müssen. Es war anstrengend für uns, aber lohnenswert. Toll!
