    After spending the night in Schanze, you can choose between the ridge and valley variants of the Rothaarsteig. If you choose the valley variant, you walk in a south-westerly direction through the ravine-like Grubental and over the village of Latrop to the so-called million bank, where the two variants unite again. If you want to continue on the main path, the ridge variant, you start in a southeastern direction past the Kyrill path towards the hamlet of Kühhude. On your way towards Kühhude you will pass some sculptures on the WaldSkulpturenWeg. After about three and a half kilometers you will come across the 40 meter long suspension bridge, which you can simply hike around if you get wobbly knees.The Rothaarsteig-Grenzweg then leads through dense forests and on ridges to the million dollar bank, where the ridge and valley variants reunite. In the forests around the million bank it is not entirely uncommon to come across wild bison. The bison are used to hikers on the trails, but a certain respectful distance should be kept - especially if you are out with dogs or if you meet mother animals.After a total of about 13 kilometers (main variant) you will reach the small village of Jagdhaus, where the wisent path branches off to the Wisent-Welt Wittgenstein nature experience center. In the bison world, a bison herd can be observed relatively well in a demarcated area. If you stay on the suggested route, you will reach the Somborn spring after a total of sixteen kilometers. Up to the Rhein-Weser Tower, the stage destination with a wonderful panoramic view, it is another five kilometers from the Somborn spring.
