In the Siegerland and in the adjacent Lahn-Dill-Bergland the Hauberg was in its historically traditional form an oak-birch-coppice, which was aborted on average every eighteen years, used as firewood or cabbage wood and then knocked out of the stick independently. After the output followed cereal cultivation and use as cattle pasture. The Hauberg trail informs about this traditional use of the forest.The historical HAUBERG OFFDILLN, also on the route of the "Rothaarsteig Trail Dill-Bergroute", offers insights into this age-old form of forest management.

In the immediate vicinity of the junction of the Rothaarsteiges (Westerwald variant on the one hand or direction Dillenburg) is a really well made small Haubergslehrpfad. From the kiln to the kitten (if you want to know what that is, you should take a look at it here), right through to peeling and lining up the hills. Everything is explained here.
