An easy round with little altitude and all the more panoramic views - the horse paddocks from Gestüt Westerberg and a detour with wine tasting fit perfectly with the idyllic panorama.
Distance 6.6 km
For people who like to have an overview: On the Westerberg circular route, the Rhine-Hessian panorama can be enjoyed to the full, completely relaxed and without inclines. The magnificent Westerhaus Castle from the 15th century with its vinotheque and the nearby stud is a particularly picturesque eye-catcher - and definitely worth a delightful detour with wine tasting for wine connoisseurs. Another landmark is the Bismarck Tower, the starting point of the tour and a remarkable vantage point during the day is freely accessible. The view from the Bisrmarck Tower into the Rhine Valley and into the Rheingau is an absolute must. There are other places to stop for refreshments in the Waldeck mountain restaurant or in Brauser's Bergschänke. In the Waldeck Tiger Garden you can also look the majestic big cats straight in the eye ... Guided tours ("Tiger - eye to eye") are offered where you can look up to one meter the animals come up. There is also a small petting zoo next to the tiger enclosure.
A wine tasting or a purchase in the Westerhaus Castle vinotheque is an experience. Opening times on request, visits by appointment.
