The Klosterweg as a certified premium hiking trail crosses the Rengsdorfer Land as a route stage for almost 18 adventurous kilometers and connects the Rheinsteig in Rengsdorf with the Westerwald-Steig in Waldbreitbach. A constant alternation between ascent and descent through three stream valleys and fantastic views make the Klosterweg a unique hiking experience in the Westerwald region.
Distance 18.2 km
The location of the Rengsdorfer Land in the Rhine-Westerwald nature park - between the Rhine valley and the Westerwald plateau - occupies a special position as the “gateway to the Westerwald” or better said as the “Westerwald balcony”. It benefits from the wonderful panoramic views of the Rhine Valley and the Eifel, from the idyllic brook and meadow valleys and of course from the adjacent heights of the Westerwald.In this attractive piece of earth lies between the RheinSteig in Rengsdorf and the Westerwald-Steig in the adjacent Waldbreitbach the KLOSTERWEG, which guarantees a high adventure value for hiking and trekking fans over a length of approx. 18 km. It fulfills the requirements for premium hiking trails and is entitled to wear the GERMAN WALKING SEAL. The KLOSTERWEG not only crosses a fantastically beautiful landscape with wide views and rolling hills, with green meadows and shady forests, it also invites you to stop off on the right and left of the path in many ways.
A visit to the herb garden and the creation path of the Waldbreitbach Franciscan Sisters followed by a break on the monastery mountain terraces of the St. Marienhaus monastery in Waldbreitbach is definitely worthwhile. Reservations under Tel. 02638-81-0
