"Heidehimmel" dream path
The approximately 10 kilometer long hiking trail leads through the Volkesfelder Wacholderheide, the unspoilt Wabener Heide and to the Florianshütte with a view of the Nettetal. From the starting point at the source of the heather "Sauerbrunnen" it goes on rustic forest paths to Volkesfeld. On the way you can enjoy the panoramic view of the Nettetal and the surrounding juniper landscape after the ascent to the striking Rietelkreuz. Volkesfeld is circled, you follow the ridge and after a short forest passage, another wonderful panorama opens up. A path leads to the hill of the Wabener Heide. Here, the Wacholderhütte invites you to take a break with a panoramic view. This is followed by the Falkleyblick rock spur, from where you have a view of the deep Nettetal. After another view from the Noorkopf, the tour ends with a refreshment at the Sauerbrunnen spring.

On the Vinxtbach circuit from Königsfeld to Königsfeld. 16 km. Königsfeld is a historical place. It goes through fields and meadows along the Vinxtbach to the old oil mill. You cross the Dedenbach and go south, past the Dedenbach and Rodder to the Rodder Maar. We continue to hike over the Maarheide to the Steinberg with a detour to the idyllic Königssee. Here you touch Oberdürenbach and follow the path to the observation tower on Weiselstein, which rises from the surrounding heathland. Meadows and fields alternate on the further section of the route. Past the Burglei and the Stucksberg it goes to the Schauinsland hut, where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Rhine valley and the Westerwald, before descending over the old Steinbüchelchen volcano to the starting point in Königsfeld. The Vinxtbach Café in Königsfeld invites you to stop for a break. Homemade, very large pieces of cake. 🎂 Great value for money.

Leimersdorf and the surrounding area with the Eifelverein Ahrweiler.
Beginning at the kindergarten in Leimersdorf. We hike through open fields and plantations in the county to Birresdorf to the Rheinhöhenblick, a renatured, former landfill. From there it goes over open forest paths to Unkelbach, where we were surprised with sausages in Petra's own garden. On the way to Nierendorf it goes slightly upwards and we reach the highest point of the hike near the Herrensteiner Mathildenhof (250 mtr.) Here you have a wide view over the Grafschafter plateau. A detour to the Frankensiedlung, another highlight. Here a village was to be recreated by our ancestors, the Franks. Unfortunately this project has not been approved. Too many objections. You continue past the rain retention basin in front of Nierendorf and you reach the starting point of the Leimersdorf kindergarten.
On the way we found this great caterpillar. (a yellow Bokspinnare) Great autumn day.
