    The greats of German poetry will accompany you on the tour through the romantic Hickengrund: Goethe, Schiller and Novalis. At seven different listening stations you can listen to the wonderful poems and writings read aloud in idyllic nature and let yourself be enchanted by the combination of poetry and nature. Look forward to a special experience in the three-state corner between North Rhine-Westphalia, Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate.You start at the “Großer Stein” hiking car park in Holzhausen. First you hike uphill on a Rothaarsteig access path. Soon you will come to one of the listening stations and a few steps later you will find the Rothaarsteig. You then have a magnificent view of Lützeln, which is embedded in the valley below. After the descent to the edge of the village, the path climbs back towards the sports field.As a relic from the time of an active quarry, you will later pass the old crusher system. After further promising kilometers you will reach the triangle where you can easily jump back and forth between three federal states. First someone should imitate you. We continue on wide forest paths, which later lead downwards to meadow paths and also have some steep sections ready. Shortly before Niederdresselnorf there is a wooden bridge over the stream. After the village you climb uphill through open meadows to the edge of the forest. On an almost flat path you come back to the start at the hiking car park.
