A four day hiking trail in the Rothaar mountains, Sauerland.

A four day hiking trail - a circular walk - in the Rothaar mountains, Sauerland. About 72 km in total. On height by dense forests and in the valleys nice Fachwerk-villages. The landscape is one of the most beautiful of the south of Sauerland.
Getting there: by car its only a few hours from the Dutch-German border. Or by train from Dortmund, Hagen and in the end: Lennestadt-Kirchhundem, our starting place.

On trail: very well way marked trails. You can choose or change your day-trip every moment you like. Like we did after day 1 because of the dense forests. On the first day a nice climb to a kind of watchtower: Hohe Bracht.Through some beautiful villages, nice views, flowing rivers, like the Hundem and the Röspe. Or small springs. In these four days you walk through two Nature Parks: the Rothaar-mountains Nature Park and the Ebbe-mountains Nature Park.
Very varied and quiet.
