The Wäller Tour Elberthöhen promises fabulous views over a total of 16 kilometers around Niederelbert, Oberelbert and Welschneudorf.
The tour through the wooded and meadowy Stelzenbach valley near Montabaur offers pure nature. I start at the Hollerer Straße hikers' car park in Niederelbert. The next destination is the "Steinkaut" vantage point with its wide steps. In the forest, I learn a lot about the forest habitat on the bio-trail. Then I reach the Wolfskirchhof. The last wolf in the Westerwald was killed here in 1886. Mixed forest and wide fields follow. A trail takes me to Dielkopf. Behind Welschneudorf, I walk through a semi-open pasture landscape, later with fish ponds on the right. A small access path takes me to Oberelbert. I then walk past the Forellenhof and through the Stelzenbach valley into the forest. I walk uphill and stand below the "Rötchen" at the highest point of the path. Here is the wonderful wayside shrine "Maria Hilf" and in good weather I can see as far as the Taunus. The path leads me downhill from the "Hähnchen" hill to Niederelbert. The church is my last stop before I reach the hikers' car park.
NEW from September 2019: The almost 10 km long hiking trail Wäller Schnippel connects the Wäller tours Augst and Elberthöhen

In the winter months, the quality of the path may be impaired due to wood clearing work on individual sections of the path.
