Lush green meadows and forests invite you to go hiking here. Along the Völkerwiesenbach you pass a rhododendron park, game reserve and little dwarfs. Benches and shelters invite you to relax. The Zwergenweg is also easy to walk with a stroller. Zwergenweg Rallye: Take the quiz sheet with you at the start (for the age groups 5-7 years or 8-10 years) and solve the exciting rally on the way. If you can guess the correct answer, you will receive a small present from the tourist information offices in Rengsdorf or Waldbreitbach. The rally takes place on the red and blue dwarf trails.

Tollee Wanderung für Kinder! Gerade bei schönem Wetter toll, weil die Kinder immer wieder im Bach spielen können. Es gibt immer wieder Highlights (Bach, Teich, Balancierparcours, Wildgehege), so dass auch Laufmuffel immer wieder bei Laune gehalten werden. Kinderwagen kein Problem, perfekt durchmarkiert- die Kinder finden den Weg selbst.

Durch Zufall diese Wanderung entdeckt. Wollte eigentlich mir nur die Rothodendren ansehen. Dachte schaust mal auf der Wanderkarte nach, was es für Wanderungen gibt und da fiel mir dieser Weg auf. Schön das ich diesen Weg gelaufen bin. Für Familien mit Kindern kann ich diesen Weg echt empfehlen!! Sehr leicht zu laufen.
