Accommodation in Bad Berleburg
“Traditional markets”: handicrafts and customs, the region and the local people are the focus of our traditional markets. At the wool market in May, you can watch the sheep being shorn, so that they lose their winter wool. There’s a wonderful atmosphere at the bread market and harvest thanksgiving in October. Then, the local youth decorate their harvest carts and the bakery collectives fire up their ovens. Around the third weekend in Advent, the town is made particularly enchanting by the “Christmas journey through time”. The Christmas market all around Schloss Berleburg offers a romantic journey from the Middle Ages and the Baroque and Biedermeier periods, through to today for the whole family.

Via Celtica by Bettina
May 02, 2021 · Community
Genau wie der Schieferpfad und Via Adrina eine sehr schöne Rundtour mit hohem Pfadanteil. Man sollte aber bedenken, dass sich die Runde zu ca. 90 Prozent mit den bekannten o.g. Runden und der Wacholder Rundtour deckt. Ich gebe dennoch die 5 Sterne, weil so schön pfadige Strecken in dieser Gegend selten zu finden sind. Um so mehr, da viele ehemals schöne Touren von Waldfahrzeugen kaputt gemacht wurden . Wie zB der Kindelsberpfad.

Via Adrina - The Eder hiking route with wonderful views by Ralf
April 26, 2021 · Community
Sehr schöne mittelschwere Wanderung. Wir, meine Frau unser Hund und ich haben diese tolle Wanderung in die zwei empfohlenen Etappen aufgeteilt. So traurig die Kahlstellen in den Wäldern durch den Borkenkäfer sind, umso grandioser sind die Aussichten und Weitblicke die man dadurch bekommt. Zahlreiche Ruhebänke säumen diesen Weg die zu Pausen bei bester Aussicht einladen. Besonders pfiffig der " Getränkeautomat " oberhalb von Schwarzenau. Die Beschilderung ist sehr gut.

Via Celtica - In tune with the Celts by Anette

Vergebe selten 5 Sterne aber hier kann mich hier meinen Vorrednern nur anschließen. Eine wunderschöne Strecke, absolut empfehlenswert. Uns fehlte allerdings gut 1km wg. einer Umleitung, aber das störte uns nicht weiter, es gab ja genug zu sehen.
