Edersee Tag 4 - Strandbad Rehbach - Peterskopf - Bringhausen
Marco 🥾 + 🍺 went for a hike.
August 29, 2020
Day 4 of my Edersee vacation was on the program and I actually wanted to take it easy with the planned 10-15 kilometers, but I had to improvise a bit on the way, which is why the clock ended up with almost 20 kilometers.Today I drove from Waldeck to the Rehbach lido and started the hike from there. The first stage destination was the Peterskopf on which the Waldeck pumped storage plant is located. Since the funicular is currently out of order due to construction work, I had to walk up the hill. When I finally got to the top, I stopped at the "Zum Waldbölker" snack bar. An absolutely recommendable mountain hut, with really nice innkeepers, a small but nice menu and delicious homemade bread. The Waldbölker is a hut that can be found without hesitation in any ski area.After the rest, I am then on to the highest point of the Peterskopf, on which, in addition to the cell phone mast for the region, there is also a telescope to explore the area. From the Peterskopf we went deep into the Kellerwald National Park with its wonderful beeches and oaks. Here I had to improvise again and make more kilometers than planned. The next stage destination "Förstergrab" could not be reached on the direct route, which is why I had to make a detour via the "Tannendriesch", but this detour was not bad, because in this refuge you can find some interesting information about the beech forests and the coal piles there used to be here.When we finally arrived at the forester's grave, from then on we only walked along wonderful forest paths, on which from time to time a fallen tree lay. But that is also part of the national park. After a few kilometers I was in Bringhausen, where, thanks to the low water in the reservoir, I was able to walk to the island of love. Bring Castle used to stand on this island. Century was built. Today, unfortunately, only a wall of the castle can be seen, but from up there you have a great view of the former village of Bringhausen including the bridge to Scheid, which, after the construction of the Edertalsperre, also sank into the floods, like the village of Berich and the Asel Bridge belongs to the so-called Edersee-Atlantis and can only be seen and walked on at low tide.From Bringhausen I walked back to the car at the Rehbach lido on the cycle path that ran parallel to the street. Walking on a cycle path is not always easy, but the path is wide enough so that you don't get in the way of the cyclists. After about 20 kilometers I got back to the car (including the ticket :-D)Even if I wanted to walk a little less, today's tour was cool, exciting and especially the route through the Kellerwald National Park was awesome.
