Your last stage on the Sieg cycle path is about to begin and you will be more than reconciled for yesterday's route on the main road when you drive along the idyllic Siegtalwege again. The route is only about 27 kilometers long, but the last kilometers up to the source are tough. At the beginning, the city of Siegen amazes with great bike paths that guide you out of the city on perfect asphalt with a highway feeling. A little later you will reach the picturesque paths of the Siegtal, where you cycle through green meadows and past farm animals. About halfway through the route you come through Deuz, a small district of Nephten. Here you have the last opportunity to stock up on your provisions. From now on it goes gently and constantly uphill. Wonderful views and shady trees make the ascent a pleasure. Once at the source, you can first hold your head under the cold water. Not far from the source is the country inn "Zur Siegquelle", where you can stop for a reward.But the real reward is still waiting for you: of course, you treat yourself to the descent of the kilometers you have cycled up. Depending on where the journey takes you, you have different options here. The nearest train station is in Lützel, about nine kilometers away, and bicycles can be taken on the train for free. The express bus 5 goes back the route of the Siegtalradweg, here you need a bicycle ticket. You can get in directly at the source, or you can whiz down the mountain and get into Deuz, for example. Of course, you can also cycle back the route to Siegen, where you are well connected by train in various directions.
