komoot and Frieda planned a hike.
September 13, 2018
On your fifth stage on the Rheinsteig you can see many views - in between you walk through vineyards and quiet side valleys of the Rhine Valley.The fifth stage starts in Bad Hönningen. From here, the Rheinsteig leads you on quiet forest trails up to the Rheinbrohler Ley. The rock rises high above the Rhine and gives you a fantastic view. While you rest here on the bench, you can watch the ships on the Rhine.From the Rheinbrohler Ley you hike down the Rheinsteig into the valley of the Hammersteiner Bach. Through the valley to the village Hammerstein, which lies directly on the banks of the Rhine. Here you walk a short distance along the shore until the Rheinsteig rises again.After a short but steep climb you reach the castle ruin Hammerstein. From the proud castle only a few walls and part of the keep are preserved. From the ruins, it goes down again and through the Mühlbachtal. Following is the last ascent of today's stage. Here the Rheinsteig runs across the vineyards above Leutersdorf.From the end of the stage it is only a short descent to the stage goal Leutersdorf.
The destination is called Leutesdorf, without the "r"
