Etappe 2: Von Willingen nach Winterberg – der Rothaarsteig
Rothaarsteig planned a hike.
December 14, 2020
Today it goes high! After starting in Willingen, the path leads through wooded area up to the 843 meter high Langenberg, the highest point of the Rothaargebirge, the Sauerland and all of North Rhine-Westphalia.The ascent to the summit always offers very beautiful views of the Hochsauerland, the summit itself is forested and the view from there is 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 can stop off at the Hochheide hut in the area of the Neuer Hagen nature reserve. This is already south of the winter sports resort Willingen (Upland).After about 13 kilometers through forests and heaths, you finally reach the village of Küstelberg, which is surrounded by fields. From here it goes another nine kilometers - and past the Ruhrquelle - to the stage destination in Winterberg.
We were here today too! However, we walked a circular route or an "own route". We recommend :)
