December 18, 2020
On this tour you combine the idyllic Dilltal with a detour to the panoramic Rothaarkamm. On the way to the Rothaarkamm you cross the historic Hauberg Offdilln, which gives you exciting insights into this ancient form of forest management. This form of coppice forest management originated in the 13th or 14th century, when the demand for charcoal for the emerging iron production increased in this country.The trees were not completely cut down because they were supposed to fall again. This can be interpreted as the first ecological rethinking at this time. If you would like to learn more about the Hauberg economy, you can take part in a ranger tour of the forest and wood company of North Rhine-Westphalia via the Haubergspfad.Shortly after the history lesson on Hauberg Offdilln you will reach the picturesque source of the Bocksborn. Here you can sit down for a leisurely rest. You continue on the Rothaarsteig, where you can enjoy magnificent views of the Lahn-Dill-Bergland and the Siegerland. It gets really spectacular when you arrive at the "Nase im Wind" viewing platform on the Tiefenrother Höhe. Take a little time and take a deep breath!The Luca oak near the Steinbach forester's lodge majestically watches over the hikers. It measures an impressive 27.5 meters, has a diameter of 3.85 meters and is around 230 years old. Impressive! A beautiful path now leads back to the starting point.
