Day 4 and unfortunately already my last hike here in the Westerwald. Since I'm supposed to go home this afternoon, I've picked out a smaller tour. The "Kleine Wäller Wolfsteine" sounds like it was made for me and a well-rounded affair. Lots of animals, bizarre rock formations and a little stroll through the old town of Bad MarienbergMy hike starts at the Bad Marienberg Wildlife Park, where of course I first of all greet the Scottish highland cattle and alpacas in a fitting manner. So much courtesy just has to be in there. 😉The free game park seems pretty big and beautiful. Around 100 animals are housed on an area of 20 hectares, including bison, rheas, red deer and wild boar. A small petting zoo, an alpine hut and an adventure playground make it a popular destination for young and old.Unfortunately, I don't have the time for the 4-kilometer circular route, and I dedicate myself to the "Little Woods".Remmidemmi is really nice at the large climbing forest in Bad Marienberg. But with every step it gets calmer, and when I arrive at the Kleiner Wolfstein after a very short time, I am alone here and enjoy the peace and quiet. A forest church is located right next to the impressive rock formations at a height of 557 meters. A really idyllic and peaceful place where you can even get married in the middle of the Marienberger Höhe nature reserve.The rocks of the natural monument themselves invite you to scramble and are the remains of a basalt lava flow from the tertiary period around 23 million years ago.Via a very beautiful forest path on the Wolfstein ridge, I reached the second geotope, the Großer Wolfstein, very quickly. There are a number of legends surrounding it, and it is also said to have served as a Celtic place of worship. Above all, I find it geologically and scenically exciting and once again I can't resist taking a little scramble.Then I sit on a tree stump on the edge for a while and have fun discovering the different faces and figures in the rocks. Here a grim-looking giant clenching his fist, there clearly a dog's snout with ears up, and on the far right, yes, that could be the head of a turtle ... 😉Before my imagination runs wild with me, I leave the rock formations of volcanic origin and continue walking towards Bad Marienberg.Past a small wall of basalt stones, the path leads me to a wide clearing with a view over the Westerwald heights. What makes me a little sad is unfortunately again large deforested areas that have fallen victim to climate change. 🙈Now I walk through the Bad Marienberg city center, a small section that is of course not that close to nature. I really like the well-kept spa gardens. Above all, the huge barefoot path and the pharmacy and herb garden - which was laid out and planted according to Pastor Kneipp - are a feast for the eyes.After a little stroll through Bismarckstraße full of shops and cafés, I leave the city area again and come to another highlight: the basalt park of Bad Marienberg! 🤩The large, green shimmering basalt lake with the massive and steep quarry wall in the background is both idyllic and impressive. A little fox runs across my path, birds are chirping everywhere, and dragonflies are buzzing at the water's edge.Some information boards provide information on the flora and fauna, but also on the history of basalt mining in the region and the harsh working conditions of the past. The paths around the basalt lake are nicely laid out, and there is really a lot to look at and explore.What fascinates me most: The incredibly wide carpets made of water lilies that cover the lake. Simply gorgeous and so beautiful to see what a natural paradise has emerged here.Now it's not far back to the wildlife park near Bad Marienberg. A beautiful dirt road leads me past the Wildlife Park Hotel to the 18-meter-high Hedwigsturm, which of course I immediately climb up again. From here I not only have a great panoramic view of the Nistertal and the gentle mountain ranges of the Westerwald, but can also take photos of a few of the wildlife park residents from the drone's perspective. 😍What a nice end to my short trip to the Westerwald, which will certainly not be the last time I saw me. Because I still have a lot of ideas for great tours in this region. 🤩And here is my detailed blog article about hiking in the Westerwald with lots of information, tips and stories. Have fun while reading! 😊couchflucht.de/wandern-westerwald
