Etappe 3: Von Winterberg nach Schanze – der Rothaarsteig
Rothaarsteig planned a hike.
December 14, 2020
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 unwooded panoramic mountain Kahler Asten, which you reach after about six kilometers. With more than 840 meters and a wonderful panoramic view, it is the highest point of this stage.A few hundred meters on the Kahler Asten and through the heather area, you will then pass the Lenne spring. Then it goes mainly through meadows to the village of Langewiese. From here the path then leads up to the Albrechtsberg, which you reach after 14 kilometers of the stage with some wonderful viewpoints.About two kilometers after the Albrechtsberg, the Rothaarsteig divides into a valley and a ridge variant. Here you can decide whether you want to follow the ridge variant over the Rothaarsteig suspension bridge (don't worry, we will pass there on stage 4) and the small hamlet of Kühhude, or whether you turn onto the valley variant and spend the night in Schanze two and a half kilometers away want to take advantage of - which corresponds to our route suggestion.
