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.
