Best Season

The Kellerwaldsteig aims to bring hikers closer to the varied and unique beauty of the Kellerwald-Edersee nature and national park.

All of the sights in the almost 600 square kilometer nature park and the centrally embedded Kellerwald-Edersee National Park are on the hiking route. Under the motto: “Let your soul unwind for once,” you can recharge your batteries for everyday life in the mild low mountain climate. Experience the Edersee with its clean and clear water, the rustic stunted forests in the north, the huge beech trees in the national park, idyllic towns with inviting country inns and, especially in the south, the forests, fields and meadows that are so popular with hikers. The Kellerwald tower on the Wüstegarten, the highest elevation in the nature park, offers views far beyond the region.
