The Saynbach route leads you through idyllic landscapes, past the seven ponds of the Westerwald lake district and invites you to make short stops again and again.The tour connects the Saynbach valley with the mountain ranges of the Westerwald lake district. The tour starts in Selters. First it goes uphill via Maxsain to Freilingen, from where you can choose between two alternative routes to Wölferlingen. But before you decide: take a detour up to the Helleberg observation tower between Weidenhahn and Düringen, from where you have a wonderful view over the region. Back in Freilingen you either follow the L304 or take the junction shortly after Freilingen to cycle along a fish pond and the subsequent avenue to Wölferlingen.We continue past the Wölferlinger Weiher uphill to the highest point of the route: the 430 meter high Wölferlinger Kopf. The forest playground between Dreifelden, Wölferlingen and Steinen is recommended for resting. From here you can also reach the seven ponds of the Westerwald lake district. When the weather is nice, a wonderful view of the Siebengebirge awaits you behind the stones.After the ascent at the beginning of the route, it now goes downhill to Rückeroth. You will pass the "Schmanddippe" castle ruins in Hartenfels. The ruin owes its unusual name to the 28 meter high castle keep, which is similar to a creamer - that is, a "Schmanddippe" as the Westerwälder says. From Rückeroth it goes back via Goddert to the starting point in Selters.
