Westerwald-Steig Stage 14: Horhausen - Strauscheid (East - West)

The history of ore mining is brought to life in Horhausen and its surroundings. A bronze statue of one of the famous sons of the city, Cardinal Joseph Höffner, archbishop of Cologne for many years, stands in the courtyard of the neo-Romanesque church in the centre of Horhausen. The social reformer Chaplain Friedrich Dasbach and Johannes Rüth, who became a bishop in Norway, were also born in Horhausen. The landscape in the Rhine-Westerwald nature park is characterised mainly by the romantic River Wied, a tributary of the Rhine. Wide valleys, hills, slopes and wooded areas are all typical of the Wied Valley. The highest point in the municipality of Neustadt is the 351.5m high volcanic cone of the Bertenauer Kopf.
