This time I did this beautiful tour with 3 children - 2 of my own plus 1 borrowed one ;-) So I happily wandered through the forest with three small organ pipes. It was a great day. For the children, of course, the unexpected Sprite along the way was one of the highlights of the day. The brave hikers deserve it!

What can I say: the stage is actually nice but it was very, very, very wet today. It poured non-stop and unfortunately 2 out of 3 rain jackets gave up completely and 1 out of 6 shoes too. Nevertheless, the mood was cheerful - quite the opposite of the weather. 😂😂😂 Nothing can shake my children! 😍😍😍

Completed the 2nd stage of the Uplandsteig today in absolutely foggy and rainy weather. You really couldn't see 100 meters away. So we were almost the only hikers on the route. We had a lot of fun. 😀 Since we had to wait a little longer for the bus in Eimelrod, we stopped at the "Zur Zweere" restaurant, which was fortunately open. Both children were happy about an ice cream sundae. Since my big one had a wet shoe, I made a special hiking sock out of my dry right sock and a plastic bag. 🤣 Mom was barefoot then 🤷♀️ but what the heck! 😁

Since the last bus from Winterberg to Willingen leaves at around 4 p.m., we just hiked the 2nd stage of the Rothaarsteig the wrong way round. So it went with the 10 o'clock bus R48 to Winterberg gate. From there we started hiking at a fresh 8 °. On the way there was not only the impressively beautiful nature but also a lot of historical things to discover along the way. E.g. References to the more than 1000 year old military and trade route "Heidenstrasse", which led from Leipzig via Kassel to Cologne. In the Sauerland the road led e.g. through the places Medebach, Winterberg, Nordenau, Schmallenberg, Meinerzhagen. Because of its connection, the "Heidenstraße" was the most important road for the Sauerland in the Middle Ages. It only lost its importance in the 19th century when more roads were built. In the Sauerland, it can be seen in the form of bundles of ravines or strips of woodland and is protected in places as a ground monument. Furthermore, the old boundary stones were the border between ...

Today we tackled the 1st stage of the Uplandsteig and it was really worth it! The weather fluctuated between fog and rain and sunshine, which gave us great skies. On the way we visited the Schwalenburg, a medieval castle from the year 800. A very special place! From Rattlar we took the 560 bus back to Willingen. Before that, we still had time to take a break in the playground. 😁 It's also cool when you have to wait for the bus!
