Westerwald-Steig Stage 5: Westerburg - Freilingen (East - West)

Once you reach Westerburg, the landscape changes – there are no more bare, jagged basalt peaks like in the High Westerwald. Instead, there are gentle hills, leafy forests and wide meadow valleys, letting you see many types of landscape in a relatively small area. There is always something new to discover on the other side of each mountain peak. The trail takes you over the Hergenrother Kopf mountain past Brandscheid, Rothenbach and Wölferlingen to Freilingen.
