Turn-by-turn directions

From the parking lot, follow the WesterwaldSteig access road straight ahead to Wied and then walk 300 m to the right. Here it goes left over the bridge and directly left again. After 100 m go right and after 50 m (information board) turn right into the forest. You are now on the WesterwaldSteig rating path in the area of ​​the former "Katzenschleif iron ore mine". On the ridge at Over there is the opportunity to enjoy panoramic views in almost all directions and to pause for a short time. Follow the WesterwaldSteig further past Walburg Castle into the Wallbachtal. The three-storey quarry stone building of Walburg Castle towers high above the Wied and is now privately owned. In the valley, turn right onto the Wiedweg via Gasbitze back towards Waldbreitbach. At the Wiedhof campsite, cross the Wied on a suspension bridge and follow the L255 to the right for 100 m. Then turn left into the forest following the Wiedweg past the Jewish cemetery. From there you go into the village and cross the K90. Here you turn right on the W2 past the over 800 year old renovated Commende and the parish church Maria Himmelfahrt, which was built by the knights of the Teutonic Order at the beginning of the 13th century, back to the starting point. You will find the tourist information and a few restaurants and cafes 100 m from the parking lot at your starting point.

Herrliche Aussichten im ersten Streckendrittel. Das Wallbachtal im zweiten Drittel kann etwas matschig sein, allerdings wird der Wanderer im dritten Streckenabschnitt wieder mit schönen Pfaden belohnt.

Auch diese Tour, ist eine schöne Tour durch den Naturpark Westerwald, mit seiner für diese Region typischen Wäldern und Bergen. Sie besticht durch schöne natürliche Wanderpfade, schöne Panoramaausblicke vom Berg ins Tal und auf die umliegenden Orte. Wir sind vom Parkplatz "Am Mühlenberg" an der Wied gestartet, den ich Hundebesitzern empfehlen kann, da man dort direkt mit dem Hund in die Wied gehen kann und dann direkt in die Tour starten. Die Tour führt am Schloß Walburg vorbei. Wir hatten bestes Wanderwetter, 22 Grad, aufgelockerte Bewölkung und haben es genossen. Alles in allem, eine tolle ländliche Tour...
