Rothaarsteig E02 - Von Bruchhausen nach Winterberg
komoot planned a hike.
July 6, 2017
Today is high! After the start in Bruchhausen the path leads through wooded area up to the 843 meter high Langenberg, the highest point of the Rothaargebirge, the Sauerland and the whole of NRW.The approximately eight-kilometer-long ascent to the summit offers again and again very beautiful views of the Hochsauerland, the summit itself is wooded and the view from there therefore relatively unspectacular. The area in the next few kilometers after the Langenberg is then determined by the rare natural landscape of the Niedersfelder Hochheide. You have a rest stop in the Hochheide hut in the area of the nature reserve Neuer Hagen. This is already south of the winter sports resort Willingen (Upland), which is also a milestone for many hikers on Rothaarsteig.After about 18 kilometers of walking through forests and heaths, you finally arrive in the village of Küstelberg surrounded by fields. From here, it takes another nine kilometers - and past the Ruhr source - to the stage destination to Winterberg.
