If you like, you can also make a detour to the Leyberg here. The path is marked with a yellow Rheinsteig symbol and at the summit you will be rewarded with a great view of the Siebengebirge.From the slopes of the Leyberg you will then gently downhill towards the Rhine. In Bruchhausen the trail leads you out of the forest for a short distance and along open fields.The first highlight of the Middle Rhine Valley is the Stuxberg. The rocky hill rises directly above the tranquil town of Unkel and rewards you with magnificent views.In the constant up and down it goes on the ridge further south. The slopes are getting closer and closer to the banks of the Rhine and at the Erpeler Ley a wonderful panorama awaits you from the Rhine Valley and the wide meadows around Kripp.Afterwards, you hike gently downhill until you reach your destination Linz.
