Westerwälder Kannenbäckerstraße - Auf der Spur des "weißen Goldes"

The Kannenbäckerland is especially known for its ceramics. Europe's largest clay deposits have been found in the Westerwald. The grey pots, jugs and other tableware with the typical blue patterns are known far beyond the region.

The Westerwald Ceramics Museum in Höhr-Grenzhausen is the largest of its kind in the world and offers a real experience. Of course, I come across ceramic workshops all along the route and also visit the Tonbergbaumuseum in Siershahn.

Another time I opt for the clay themed trails around Boden. There are two circular trails (red and blue route), each 12 km long and with many highlights around the clay pits in the southern Westerwald.

A thematically different highlight are the Roman remains such as the Limesturm in Hillscheid and the Römerturm northeast of Kadenbach. I can also visit interesting churches, for example the Westerwald Cathedral in Wirges. The Skulpturen Miniaturen Museum north of Ransbach-Baumbach also awaits. If you are interested in the modern age, the freely accessible Erlebniswelt Staudt (north of Montabaur) on the subject of renewable energies is the place to go.

Montabaur also has a lot to offer, whether it's the castle or the old town. In addition, there are restaurants everywhere with very different offers, so that there is the right experience for every palate.
