December 18, 2020
Dense forests, enchanted rocks and wonderful panoramic views: all of this awaits you on this tour. The circular hiking trail, which is certified as a “Quality Trail Wanderable Germany”, inspires with its wild and romantic nature. You follow old donkey paths on adventurous paths and can top off your trip with a stop at the Alpenhaus. But let's start at the beginning.You start at the guest's house and first walk through the Oberhundem spa gardens. A little later you will reach a picnic area and dive into the forest. The first highlight of your hike are the Oberhundemer cliffs, a spectacular rock formation in the middle of the forest. A short time later you will reach the legendary Rothaarsteig, which you follow for a while. Here you can pause and sit down on a pleasantly curved wooden bench.After you have left the Rothaarsteig, you circle the Kahleberg, which offers you fantastic views after hurricane Kyrill has deforested the entire slope. After a good two thirds of your route you will reach the Alpenhaus. The former alpine club house of the Essen section is beautifully located at 650 meters and attracts with tasty snacks and a cool drink.The final spurt is probably the most beautiful section because you are walking along the former donkey path. The landlord of the Alpenhaus used to have to transport everything upstairs on pack donuts. As soon as you have reached the edge of the forest after a steep descent, Oberhundem is on your left hand side in front of you - your goal is now within your grasp. Finally, let yourself be pampered with culinary delights at the Gasthof zu den Linden in Oberhundem.
