Mountain Biking Highlight
DreiherrensteinAt Dreherherrnstein, the territories Duchy of Westphalia, Nassau-Siegen and Wittgenstein-Hohenstein came together. The large triangular stone on the Wildborn is on the Nassau side with a Wolfsangel, on the Wittgenstein side with a large W and on the Kurkölnischen side with a cross provided. In 1817 Prussia formed the districts Olpe, Siegen and Wittgenstein. Thus, the old territorial boundaries were only a circular border in the newly founded province of Westphalia. Today, the former "border triangle" is a border point between the districts of Olpe and Siegen-Wittgen-stein. For hundreds of years, fierce and sometimes even deadly border struggles raged along these territorial borders, with destruction and theft of wood, tools and livestock. To this day, this old border is characterized not only by the Rothaarkamm, but also by the confluence of Saxon and Franconian cultural and religious influences. (Source: Erlebnisführer Rothaarsteig

Very old trees of coniferous trees with a lot of "depth". The roads are good and you are really cut off from all the places and sounds that do not belong here. The entire area of interest and Zinser forest with Rothaarsteig (if you do not want to meet anyone and the paths around) Riemen, Dreiherrenstein, Zinser Bachtal is extremely nice for mountain biking and hiking / running
