Westerwald-Steig Stage 16: Waldbreitbach - Bad Hönningen (East - West)

The Westerwald-Steig trail passes the St Joseph House in Hausen and heads over the Malberg mountain to the Rhine. The 373m high Malberg looks like a crater, but its lake is not volcanic – it was created by the former basalt mine here. You can ski here in the winter, but the ski hut is open all year round to cater for hikers. The Westerwald-Steig trail ends in Rheinbrohl with one more highlight – the RömerWelt living Roman history museum.
