Hiking in Siegen-Wittgenstein

Listen to the rustling of the leaves. Breathe the aromatic air of Siegen-Wittgenstein's forests. Let the breeze caress your cheeks and gaze at the panoramic view of the Lahntal valley, the meanders of the river Eder and the green hills. The paths border on bubbling springs and tranquil waters, ancient weathered trees, timber frames, adits and traces of old slate mines. Stroll past tiny hamlets as you follow the cart tracks left in the rock along the old trade routes. Explore the Rothaarsteig hiking trail or make your own way between Celtic remains, enchanted mushroom glades and mystic rocks.

Rothaarsteig

A tour for the senses through Siegen-Wittgenstein

Since 2001, the Rothaarsteig has made the new hiking trail from Brilon in the Sauerland region via the Wittgensteiner Bergland and Siegerland regions through to Dillenburg in Hesse at the foot of the Westerwald hills into a treat for all the senses.

Just one to two hours by car from the centres on the Rhine, Main and Ruhr rivers, the region offers endless wide open spaces, natural peace and authenticity over a stretch of 154 km and a total altitude of 3,931 m.
