Wandern im Westerwald preloader-image Dominik Ketz



You can still feel the four elements in the Westerwald. Fresh air blows away the cobwebs, the water reflects the sky in the crystal-clear streams and lakes, and the nutrient-rich earth brings good harvests.

Here you can find a selection of the hiking trails available in the Westerwald.
