Even the Romans used the Plackweg to transport their goods through the Arnsberg Forest. Even today, we can still see traces of the old trade route on the hiking trail maintained by the Sauerland Mountain Association. It leads for long stretches along the ridge of the Plackweghöhe, which is up to 581 m high, and therefore has some challenging climbs in store for us - but for which we are rewarded with magnificent views, impressive castles, large caves and mysterious monasteries.

The Ruhr Heights Trail follows the course of the Ruhr from its source near Winterberg to where it flows into the Rhine in Duisburg. For the most part, we do not hike directly along the banks, but on the ridges on both sides of the river from the Rothaargebirge mountains to the Lower Rhine in the Ruhr region.
