Are you out and about with the whole family and want to make everyone happy, from the smallest to the tallest? Then the Sieg Adventure Trails in Germany are just the thing for you with entertaining hikes on themed trails. The 10 varied routes offer you action and adventure, particularly brilliant for the little ones. But the adventure trails also offer pure hiking pleasure for ambitious hikers.

On your way through the Westerwald, a beautiful low mountain range in the Rhenish Slate Mountains, you’ll not only experience breathtakingly beautiful nature, some of which is really wild, but you can also walk in the footsteps of history. Look forward to medieval and Celtic sites, imposing churches and other places steeped in history or visit the heroes of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. But the zoologist in you is also catered for: on the bee nature trail, in the animal park or on the squirrel trail, you can get to know and understand the forest’s delightful residents.

All the trails are easy to follow and you never have to cover more than 10 kilometres (6 mi), while the difference in altitude stays within moderate limits. A holiday in the Sieg Nature Region is perfect for the whole family as you can take children hiking with you on all the trails; some of them are even suitable for prams. You can reach this region by car or comfortably by train – for example via Siegen, Bonn or Cologne. Look forward to great hikes in the midst of the most beautiful landscapes!

    Adventurers big and small can find out on the robber trail whether you have what it takes to become a real robber. On the way, various tasks have to be solved in the forest before the robber's diploma is awarded at the campsite for the oak forest. The 4.6 km long path is a bit more demanding in some places, it leads over hill and dale and there are a few moderate ascents and descents to master.

    Erzquellstollen

    Hiking Highlight

    The Erzquell-Stollen supplies the Erzquell Brewery Siegtal with great-tasting water, which flows through a four-kilometer pipe down into the valley. The spring water is free of minerals, germ-free and very soft and is therefore ideal for brewing beer. In 1902 the brewery took over the "Young Eichhorn" gallery, which was built in the 18th century, and renamed it.
