    After spending the night in Schanze, you can choose between the ridge and valley variant of the Rothaarsteig. If you choose the Talvariante, you go southwest through the gorge-like Grubental and over the village Latrop to the so-called million bank, where the two variants reunite. If you want to continue on the main path, the ridge variant, you start in a southeasterly direction past the Kyrill path in the direction of the hamlet of Kühhude. Somewhat after brushing Kühhude, you'll find the Forest Sculpture Trail and a 40-foot suspension bridge that you can easily wander if you get shaky knees.The Rothaarsteig-Grenzweg then goes through dense forests and on ridges to the million dollar bank, where the main path with the valley variant unites. In the forests around the millionaire bank, it is not uncommon to encounter wild bison. The wisents are used to hikers on trails, but a certain respect distance should be strictly adhered to - especially if you are traveling with dogs or if you meet mother animals.After about 13 kilometers total route (main variant) you reach the small hunting lodge, where the Wisent path branches off to the nature discovery center Wisent-Welt Wittgenstein. In the wisent world, a bison herd can be observed relatively well in a delimited area. If you stay on the proposed route, after sixteen kilometers you will reach Somborn Spring. Up to the Rhein-Weser-Turm, the stage destination with a magnificent panorama, it is five kilometers from the Somborn spring.
