Etappe 5: Vom Rhein-Weser-Turm bis Lützel – der Rothaarsteig
Rothaarsteig planned a hike.
December 14, 2020
The fifth stage begins high up on the Rhein-Weser Tower. From here the path leads into the romantic and densely wooded Schwarzbachtal. After about six and a half kilometers you will hike through the landscape of the Heinsberger Hochheide. A sporty detour down to the Heinsberg aqueduct and a walled-up railway tunnel, which has been closed since 1945, can be of particular interest to those interested in the railway.A short distance after you have visited the Heinsberg aqueduct (or left it on the right), you come to the Dreiherrenstein, and after three and a half more kilometers you reach the Ferndorfquelle. From the source, the Rothaarsteig leads a good four kilometers to the Ginsburg ruins, from whose tower you have a wonderful view and where you can stop. From the Ginsburg it is about three kilometers to the center of Lützel. The way there leads over the Giller ski mountain with the famous Gillerberg tower.
