Winterberger Hochtour Trail – Our Hiking Experience

The Trail is well marked with the logo or a “WHT” (Winterberger Hochtour).
The city of Winterberg is easy to reach, whether by bus, train or car. There is free parking.
You should be in good physical shape for the 85 km. On the Winterberger Hochtour you cross several mountains with over 700 m. The Kahler Asten (840m) is the highest point. Technical skills are not required.
You should also take cash with you on this tour. You won’t need a lot of money, depending where you stay.
The path leads you along numerous refreshment stops and villages.
We cannot provide any information about pensions or hotels at this point. We spent the three nights in a tent. As always, the exact locations can be found on our maps. It should be expressly pointed out that camping in protected areas is prohibited. It is important to us: We leave the bivouac as we found it!
Numerous gems and places steeped in history lie along the way. The Rothaargebirge is dominated by spruce forest. Due to the persistent drought, many forest areas have died
