In addition to the outstanding vegetation, there are many other sights worth seeing: You can forge your own iron in the blacksmith museum in Arfeld, the Alexander Mack Museum in the Schwarzenauer Hüttental tells the impressive story of a founder of a religion and a highlight is definitely the beautiful manor house in Schwarzenau. Between the stations you can enjoy the landscape of Wittgenstein.
Every meter of altitude difference is worth it for the impressive panoramic view this tour promises. The 30-kilometre-long route has a wonderful loop character, which offers you individual entry and exit possibilities. The difficulty and length of the tour can be varied.
An interesting detour is the nature park information centre in Bad Berleburg. In addition to the Tourist Information, the bison exhibition and the new theme area "On the trail of nature" are located there. Interactive, digital and playful, the focus is on the local flora and fauna. There are also tips on hiking trails, sights and leisure activities. It's worth a visit!

Tips and hintsFrom October to April the wooden bridge at Stedenhof, Arfeld, is not available. Please use the main road !
Ambitious people will combine the route with the other two tour tips. All three routes follow the motto 'Hoch-Zeiten rechts und links des Ederradweges - mit Landschaft und Natur Eins werden" (High-Time right and left from the Eder-Cycle-Tour - becomming one with landscape and nature").
You can find detailed driving instructions under www.radroutenplaner.nrw.de.
Along the route we pass the Arfeld forge, which is also recommended for a visit due to its interesting history.
The route initially climbs slightly uphill, followed by a short steep section which takes us to the historic Obere Hüttental in Schwarzenau. Here we are rewarded for our efforts with wonderful views.
Rushing down again to Schwarzenau, we pass the Augenstein Via Adrina. After a few kilometres downhill we reach the village centre. The manor house directly at the Eder bridge is the optical centre of attention.
The path leads again towards Arfeld. Once there, we cross the Eder with the help of an original bridge, the "Ziegensteg".
Between Arfeld and Dotzlar we climb the next mountain. However, the sweaty effort is compensated for by the following viewing platform on the Hainbach above Arfeld.
The trail continues to Dotzlar again along a panoramic route. Passing the Dotzlar Culture Hall and the sports field, the path leads to the Eder. There, the last few kilometres wait for us directly by the water until we finally reach the slate village Raumland again.
