Rothaarsteig E03 - Von Winterberg nach Schanze
komoot planned a hike.
July 6, 2017
From the center of Winterberg, the path leads past the St. Georgs ski jump and the ski mountains Poppenberg and Bremberg with their lifts up to the unspoiled mountain Kahler Asten, which you reach after about six kilometers. With more than 840 meters and a magnificent panoramic view, it is the highest point of this stage.A few hundred meters further on the Kahler Asten and through heathland, you pass the Lennequelle. Then it goes mainly through meadows to the village Langewiese in Wittgensteiner country. From here, the path leads up to the Albrechtsberg, which you reach after 14 kilometers of the stage with some wonderful vantage points.After the Albrechtsberg, the Rothaarweg divides into a valley and a ridge variant. If there are several diversion possibilities in the area of the Friedensquelle or the so-called Heidenstock you have to decide, if you want to follow the official main route (Kammvariante) south to the small hamlet Kühhude, or if you want to use overnight accommodations in the two and a half kilometers distant ski jump - which is our suggested route equivalent.
