BLB-Tourismus GmbH
In Wittgenstein you can find wonderful treasures! The adventurous and various premium hiking paths, e.g. the Wittgensteiner Schieferpfad ( Wittgensteiner state path), the Via Adrina, the Wisent path and of course the Rothaarsteig (hiking path on the Rothaargebirge), are great to experience. Even when you leave the normal paths you will come across beautiful villages that show you the traditional charm of the region. Unique in Germany and therefore outstanding is the WaldSkulpturenweg (ForestSculptureWeg) with its eleven artworks created by international artists. 

Around the Rothaarsteig you can experience the world of hiking with all of your senses: See the pure beauty of nature, the careful keeping of costums and history, as well as a spectacular cultural program and great hospitality.

The wild side of Wittgenstein is even more impressive: During a trip to the Wisent-wilderness at the Rothaarsteig the visitors gain an insight into a unique wildlife conservation programm.
