On the 15 kilometre long Wittgensteiner Schieferpfad (Wittgenstein slate trail), the bat marking shows you where to go.
As the first premium hiking route in the region, the Schieferpfad (Slate Trail) was awarded the Deutsches Wanderziegen (German hikers seal) in 2005 and has been delighting visitors ever since.
The tour runs through four nature conservation areas and numerous biotopes. There is even a real bat cave along the way. Along the trail, nature runs free and reveals its full beauty - for a wilderness in the best sense.
You will come across fascinating forest scenes, impressive cliff landscapes, winding paths, giant slate heaps and quarries as well as fantastic views of the Edertal valley, the old town of Berleburg and the slate village of Raumland.
The landscape is optimally set centre stage; some sections of the trail are adventurous and alpine in nature. Discover majestic, ancient trees, idyllic waters and historic traces of slate mining.
The Wittgenstein slate trail is among the top ranked trails on the hit list of the best premium trails in North Rhine-Westphalia, with 64 points.
