Rheinsteig Stage 6: Leutesdorf–Rengsdorf (north–south)

Detours also have their attraction! This one allows us to bypass the mid-sized town of Neuwied – which, incidentally, is good for shopping – and explore the region between the romantic Middle Rhine Valley and wooded elevations of the Westerwald on our way to Rengsdorf. Although we’re some way from the Rhine, we can catch frequent glimpses of the valley from a number of viewpoints. With the Neuwied Basin at our feet, we can savour the peace and quiet of this section of the Rheinsteig while treading in the footsteps of the Romans.
