Westerwald-Steig Stage 12: Weyerbusch - Flammersfeld (East - West)

Weyerbusch is known especially for Friedrich-Wilhelm Raiffeisen, who became the town mayor in 1845. During the famine in the winter of 1846/47 he established the 'Weyerbuscher Brodverein' to help the starving residents of the village and thus founded the cooperative system. To provide the residents with cheap bread during this difficult time, he built a bakery and sold the bread at half the normal price. His idea was so successful that he continued working in this field and garnered attention worldwide in the process.
