      In the Tänntal the typical Harz can be admired. Either it has already been cut down or it is still standing, but is dead. But there are also the first areas that are freshly afforested.
      The Plessenburg forest restaurant is very popular. The great majority of hikers and bikers come here via the nearby Ilsetal. For us there is a beautiful ridge path over the Meineberg. Far-reaching views of the Harz foreland and the Brocken included. The descent is tough. A narrow trail winds steeply down into the valley.

      In the morning we have thick fog in the Leinetal. We'd rather go to the Harz Mountains. But in front of it there is a traffic jam almost 20 kilometers long 🤮🥵. The autobahn is closed and everyone is tormented by the main road. Secret routes are in demand.
      Finally arrived the sun shines from the sky. You have to use a day like that. Today we are on the Dammgraben. At first it is still cool, in shady places there is frost on the grass. Cranes fly south all day. Winter is approaching so slowly.

      The cave dwellings in Langenstein are always amazing. It is not known when the first were carved into the rock. In any case, they were inhabited until 1910. A lot has happened since our last visit. Other apartments have been restored and made accessible.
      Now we go on a wonderful ridge path to the Hoppelberg. A strong wind is blowing. Again and again the path leads past rocks, or there are steps carved into the rock.
      Then we come to the cave dwellings on the Altenburg. These were still inhabited until 1916.
      But the further way is blocked. But the diversion is no less interesting. A long stairway that was carved into the rock here.

      Halberstadt was badly damaged in the war. But they still exist, the beautiful corners with lovingly restored houses. Unfortunately, there are also buildings where I think the architect should be sued. Creepy new buildings in the middle of the old town. Then again half-timbered buildings that are left to decay. Everything is close together in this city.
      At the end of the tour we come to the cathedral square. And while you're there, let's take a look at the cathedral treasure.

      The old town of Koblenz has surprisingly little to offer. Why are so many tourists walking around here?
      We decide to take the cable car to Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. A history festival is to take place up there. Definitely great in the fortress ambience. The cable car ride over the Rhine alone is an experience in itself. Romans, Celts, Prussians and lots of mead await us in the fortress.
      After a few hours we drive down again. And are almost overrun by the tourist crowds.

      Lahnstein, at the confluence of the Lahn and Rhine rivers, has a very small old town area. Lahneck Castle towers over the town, built in 1226 by Elector Siegfried von Eppenstein.

      We start at the confluence of the Lahn into the Rhine. It doesn't take long until we are at the entrance to the Ruppertklamm. It's a bit adventurous. Where do you have the opportunity to hike through a gorge in the creek bed? In some places steel ropes are attached to make the ascent easier. The damage caused by the June storms can still be clearly seen. The gorge has only been accessible again for a few weeks.
      It continues on beautiful forest paths to Bad Ems.
      A year ago we went to the Lahn for the first time. At that time we couldn't go the stage to Bad Ems. Now we have made up for that and thus completed the Lahn hiking trail.
      We will have many wonderful memories.

      A rainy day is always a good way to see an old town. So we are drawn to Herborn today. Even with gray skies and rain, an old town well worth seeing.

      From Aumenau we walk a little along the Lahn. Then the first ascent into the forest follows. The paths are surprisingly muddy today. We meet a fire salamander. Since there are also a lot of cyclists here, I put him off the path. Behind Gräveneck the biggest climb of the day. Halfway there we come to a small pond. It is dried out, but overgrown with a lot of wildflowers. A paradise for butterflies. The clouds are slowly getting darker. But it will probably stay dry until Weilburg. Then follows a long descent to the Lahn. Weilburg has been reached.

      Yesterday we walked past the Dünsberg on the Lahn hiking trail. Today we are here again to go on the archaeological circular hiking trail through the time of the Celts. A hike through beautiful deciduous forest where you can learn a lot.Short films can be viewed at 25 stations using QR codes.
