This Lichtenfels quality hiking trail connects the towns of the city of Lichtenfels (Hesse) to form a beautiful, tranquil panoramic hiking trail.
With a length of 69 km (excluding the Lichtenfels-Fürstenberg hiking car park connection), the “Quality Trail Hiking Germany” can be hiked in three or more stages. It connects all eight districts and leads, among other things, over the heights of the Eschenberg near Goldhausen and the Griechenkopf near Dalwigksthal.
It offers views of Korbach, the Kellerwald-Edersee Nature Park, the Rothaar Mountains and leads through the wildly romantic valleys of the Heimbach, the Orke, Aar and Nuhne. Reckenberg Castle, a small footbridge over the Orke, an “Alpine path” and Lichtenfels Castle are also sights along the way.
The tranquil town of Lichtenfels with its districts of Dalwigksthal, Fürstenberg, Goddelsheim, Immighausen, Münden, Neukirchen, Rhadern and Sachsenberg is nestled in the low mountain range of the “Waldeckian Switzerland” and lies between the towns of Korbach, Frankenberg and Medebach at the foothills of the Rothaar Mountains in the west ( Sauerland), the Waldecker Upland in the northwest and the holiday regions Kellerwald-Edersee and Burgwald in the southeast. In the northeast it borders on the Ittertal, in the east on the Edertal, behind which the Kellerwald rises, and in the south on the Nuhnetal.
