Yesterday we had to use a two-hour waiting period as sensibly as possible ...
Since the weather was good in late summer, I wanted to do a little round at the Effelsberg radio telescope.After almost 3km I had to improvise because the water masses from mid-July left nothing from the bridge and the ford on the Effelsberger Bach.
Even if the flood disaster in the North Eifel / on the Ahr has largely disappeared from the media, the consequences still shape everyday life in the regions affected - and it will remain that way for a long time ...
The trail of devastation that emerged when almost all watercourses turned into destructive river monsters with unbelievable power as a result of the heavy rain was omnipresent in Binzenbach. It was more than oppressive to cross the small town ...I then made my way back very thoughtfully ...

You don't really have to say anything more about the dream paths. They are known nationwide and you can find everything you need to know at traumpfade.info ...I started at the Wabelsberger Wacholderhütte. The consideration was that on the one hand the elevation profile is quite pleasing and on the other hand the (from my point of view) less interesting sections of the route are at the beginning ...There are also signs to change from the "Wacholderweg" to the "Bergheidenweg". However, I decided to switch back to a slightly different variant, because I wanted to integrate the view of the Nettetal, which offers itself from the edge of the forest, into the round. In addition, the transition section is a little shorter in this variant ...The absolute highlight was the intensely blooming heather landscape around the Menke-Höhe ...Due to the (too) much rain in the region in the last few weeks / months, the entire loop is exceptionally green for August and therefore the long sections in the forest currently have a special charm ...The lowlight was the hiking trail in the lower part of the gorge valley (part of the Bergheidenweg) that was completely turned to a pulp by the use of large machines. There is nothing left of the idyll of the Bachtal for the first 500m. It is more like being in a building yard, where the surrounding green waste is collected ...

Unfortunately, I'm only now getting to edit / publish one or the other tour from my summer vacation ...It is certainly a matter of opinion whether this round already belongs to the "mountain hiking" category or whether it is still a "normal" hike ...Since the Rosegger-Steig is a narrow, sometimes steep root path, which at the end offers a great view of the Ennstal and the Dachstein massif. Experienced hikers will get along well with it, but there will certainly also be hikers who will perceive this trail as a challenge ...The starting point was a somewhat hidden, free parking lot below a supermarket in Ramsau.On the way you pass two often used filming locations of the ZDF series "Die Bergretter":
- the mountain rescue center in the center of the village
- the Pernerhof is used as a film location for Emilie's Hof
But it feels like all of Ramsau and the surrounding area are a single "mountain rescue" location ...You can stop off at the Brandalm - the Hüttenburger with well-seasoned meat with lots of herbs is a dream (which of course is a matter of taste ...).

Here now also stage 109:I have decided to go back from Nassau to Oberlahnstein via the Lahnwanderweg.I ran around 50% of stage 18 and around 90% of stage 19.
The section of the 18th stage between Nassau and Bad Ems was really nice. Many paths and repeated views of the Lahn valley (8 out of 10 points).
Stage 19 always has really nice sections, but also some lengths.
It takes a long time to leave Bad Ems after leaving the lovely spa district behind.
Between the Kneipp facility above Fachbach to the refuge on the Mehrsberg, it's a good 5km through beautiful, but in the long run monotonous forest.
And the last few kilometers directly on the Lahn bring a lot of asphalt and a lot of cyclists.
The situation at the Ruppertsklamm is also unclear (because of which I had decided to go for this variant): There are old, torn fluttering tape hanging on some trees. Some signs say that you are not allowed to enter until July. On the Lahnwanderweg start page, only the adverse effects of flooding in the Lahnstein area are mentioned (fortunately there are no more). In the gorge itself, a path is clearly recognizable almost everywhere, some of the sections also look very new, at the same time there are always gaps - the gorge is definitely not suitable for families at the moment ...
The 19th stage is not a mandatory recommendation (5 out of 10 points) ...Everything you need to know about the Lahnwanderweg is available at: lahnwanderweg.de

The adventure loop "Wiedtaler Höhenpfad" or if the name promises more than the path can hold at the end:Experience: goes like this ...
Wiedtal: mainly at the beginning and at the end - occasionally also views of the valley
Heights: yes, there are, even if not as numerous as one might suspect
Path: there are some really nice ones over the last 5kmThe round can be easily described in three sections:After starting at the swimming pool, follow the course of the Westerwaldsteig to Malberg. Wide paths predominate, but there are also some path sections or meadow paths. Unfortunately, the forest paths have been used quite heavily in recent weeks by the use of (too) heavy equipment during forest work, so that they run through the forest like a broad, brown ribbon. There is a nice resting place at the edge of the forest and some other views of the Wiedtal. The Malberg offers very beautiful panoramic views into the Wiedtal and with the Malberg hut a nice stop for refreshments.
Overall, I would give the first 5km 6 out of 10 possible points ...Shortly after you've left Malberg, things get tough. It's almost 7km over mostly monotonous, wide forest paths. Shortly before Solscheid, you are sometimes on the road for a while on a district road. On this section you pass the only highlight of the second section: the Marien-Kapellchen von Solscheid. Then it is time to walk again on wide paths until you reach the Wied ...
In a nutshell: 7km largely without experience, no Wiedtal, almost no heights and certainly no path - 2 out of 10 possible points (and only because of the chapel).And when I was a little grumpy about why I took almost an hour to travel to this circular hike, the third section began directly on the Wied. After a few meters you change from a forest path to a narrow path that follows the course of the Wied near the bank. Shortly after crossing Niederbreitbach, the second beautiful section of the path follows: Behind the cemetery chapel, the single trail begins, which winds uphill past various shelters and benches in serpentines towards the St. Marienhaus monastery. Behind the monastery, a partially enchanted way of the cross leads to the Kreuzkapelle directly on the Wied. From there it is only a few meters until you have reached the starting point again. The last section is varied and deserves at least 7 out of 10 possible points ...Unfortunately there is not really an alternative for the second section, so that in total an average circular hike with a promising name remains - again I would not travel an hour for it ...

If what is actually only about 11km long dream path has turned into a more than 18km long hike, then there was either a plan or something went wrong - or both, in the following order ...The dream path "Waldschluchtenweg" was the last one I was missing. And since the directions were not really convincing, on the one hand I hesitated for a long time to walk it and on the other hand I thought it might be possible to "pimp" it ...So I thought you could easily integrate the Hillscheider Weiher and the Höhrer Tongrube into the route ...And then what happened, which actually always happens when you want to be smarter than those who know the area: On the way to the Hillscheider Weiher, you are told several times and quite impressively that the lake is privately owned. The tenant forbids access to anyone who does not belong to the fishing club quite clearly. And you would have to put in a lot of effort to overcome the barrier ...
At the Höhrer Tongrube it looks similar - only that there is no fishing club there, but some authority that has issued the entry ban ...And the detour to the Pedelhütte is at most "very nice", so that you don't necessarily have to do it ...The dream path itself offers - as the name suggests - a lot of forest and some stream valleys.
However, if you like to walk on narrow paths and largely intact beech / deciduous forests, then you will feel comfortable on the way ...In particular, the root path in front of the hut on the lake offers pure nature ...Everything you need to know about the dream path is available at: traumpfade.info/pfad/traumpfad/waldschluchtenweg

In the last few days a tour by Albertissimo drew my attention to the open-air museum in Kommern.The current offer is attractive, not having to pay for parking or entry until July 1st, 21st (all free of charge). In order to legitimize the number of visitors, however, it is necessary to book a ticket online or by phone in advance (shop.kommern.lvr.de/#/tickets/list).Some gastronomy offers have already reopened. So you can emulate the inspectors Ballauf and Schenk at the Büdchen, which became famous through the Cologne crime scene, and eat a currywurst ...Everything you need to know about the museum is available at: kommern.lvr.de/de/startseite/startseite.html

The Iserbach loop is one of the few premium circular hiking trails in the greater Neuwied area. There is also the option of dividing the round into two smaller loops ...If someone asked me what comes first to the Iserbach loop, my answer would be: This is the circular hike that feels like it's only going uphill ...
This is of course not really correct, but the climbs stretch over several kilometers, while the downhill sections are shorter and steeper - at least if you follow the recommended direction ...A small parking lot in Anhausen is given as the starting point. However, I would start with another hike of the total loop or the south loop in Iserburg. Then you have the long ascent to Thalhäuser Mühle or just before Rüscheid right at the beginning and on the other hand, the Hausenborn monastery ruins and Iserburg are the two most worth seeing highlights at the end of the hike.
In Iserburg there is a parking lot below the church, which is suitable as a starting point - however, the number of free spaces is very manageable, as the parking lot is also used by residents. That is probably also the reason why the "official" starting point is in Anhausen ...I liked the Südschleife better because it is a bit more varied and includes the ruins of the Hausenborn monastery and the town of Iserburg.
The Nordschleife - although there can really only be one, and that is in the Eifel - in the valley of the Iserbach, Siehrsbach and Thalhauser Bach brooks, there are always beautiful sections as well as some beautiful views, but it lacks that certain something ... .Conclusion: The Nordschleife is well worth seeing and if you have a longer journey, you should tackle the entire route. The Südschleife is definitely recommended ...All information about the Iserbachschleife is available at: wiedtal.de/wandern/iserbachschleife.htmlSüdschleife (11.9 km): outdooractive.com/de/route/wanderung/westerwald/iserbachschleife-suedschleife/25186487Nordschleife (15.4 km):

The route of the Eifel loop was as mixed as the weather today ...A negative factor is that the asphalt share is very high and there are always short sections where you are on a country road ....The views over the Mutscheid landscape remain positive in memory. The panoramic views behind Honerath and in front of Ohlerath are particularly beautiful.I have also installed two extensions compared to the original, which have further prospects to offer:
1. I am at the exit of Nítterscheid a little further straight ahead and have made a small loop over the plateau "Am Hagelkreuz". There are beautiful views of the Michelsberg and the Aremberg.
2. In Ohlerath I am still through the fields towards Mertesnück. Below the "summit" is a beautifully situated bench with a view of Ohlerath and the surrounding landscape. However, you can save yourself the detour to the "summit" - there is nothing more to see ...Shortly before the finish line, I met the legendary Mutscheid mamba. There is only one specimen left of this extremely shy, but very friendly reptile - that's what they say ... ;-)All in all, I don't get really warm with the EifelSchleifen - the hikers' rooting table from Nordeifel-Touristik ...
