    The "nose in the wind" is a viewing platform on the Tiefenrother Höhe (552 meters), which offers hikers on the Rothaarsteig a wonderful view in a northwesterly direction to the Siegerland. Ideal location to pause for a few minutes, to unwind - or to nibble on the provisions. Underground, the 1931-built Rudersdorfer Tunnel, a railway tunnel of the Dill range with more than two and a half kilometers in length, runs here. In the tunnel runs the border between Hesse and NRW, the Hessian part of the building is designated as a cultural monument.

    The Tiefenrother height is a 552.3 m above sea level. NHN high elevation of the Rothaargebirge. It is located between Wilgersdorf in the district of Siegen-Wittgenstein in North Rhine-Westphalia and Dillbrecht in the Hessian Lahn-Dill district - with a peak in Westphalia.

    Below the Tiefenrother height is also something going on. Far below ... about 177 m.
    Here, the Rudersdorf Tunnel runs as the longest railway tunnel in North Rhine-Westphalia on a length of 2651 m.
    Completed in 1915 and not very cheap with construction costs of about 30,000,000 marks.
    A special feature was the construction of a cable car from the north portal over the Tiefenrother Höhe to the south portal.
    Further information is provided by the board near the viewing platform.

    Since we live nearby (about 5 km walk), this place is visited more often a year. It is beautiful in every season. From Irmgarteichen there are many beautiful ways to reach the height.

    Fantastic view over the southern Siegerland with great sunsets, especially in summer ...
    The viewing platform "Nose in the Wind" on the Tiefenrother Höhe directly at the Rothaarsteig offers at an altitude of 552 m above sea level. NN a wonderful panoramic view to the northwest over the Siegerland.
