    “On a nice, warm September day we went on a hike in the great natural region of Sieg. Since our nine-year-old son and hobby knight still thinks castles are cool, we want to conquer the 800-year-old Windeck hilltop castle, the ruins of which towers over the Siegtal. There are also a few varied highlights for young and old on the circular route. "History fans, nature lovers, connoisseurs - there is something for everyone on this five-kilometer tour. The varied round starts at Schladern train station. You walk along the train tracks towards Altwindeck. A first stop in the museum village is worthwhile - and a trip back into the historical life of the region. You can see, for example, a classroom, a corner shop or a dentist's practice, everything exactly as it used to look.Your journey in time goes back a long way, however. You walk along beautiful forest paths to Windeck Castle, where the knights and damsels once lived. The well-preserved ruin gives you a great insight into the once stately fortification and offers plenty of space for discovery tours including a wonderful view of the Siegtal.The path now follows the original Siegschleife, of which only an oxbowl still exists today. In a large arc you hike back to Schladern over wide fields. It is worth taking a look over your shoulder every now and then to see Windeck Castle from a different perspective.When you arrive back in town, a final highlight awaits you: the largest waterfall in North Rhine-Westphalia. Although the Siegfall is 84 meters long and four meters high, it is not a giant, but the waterfall still offers you a beautiful natural spectacle. The view from the neighboring Elmores beer garden is particularly good. My tip: Reserve a table in the back, so you can be sure of double enjoyment of nature and culinary delights.
