Maps and trails
Kausen lies at the foot of the legendary Fuchsberg mountain and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding nature. Particularly impressive are the numerous hiking trails that wind through forests and fields and lead to the most beautiful vantage points.

The town itself has a rich history and is known for its well-preserved half-timbered houses and Kausen Castle, which was built in the 18th century. Another highlight of the region is the Hachenburg open-air museum, where you can gain an insight into the life of times gone by.

Cultural highlights are provided by regular events such as concerts or theatre performances in the local community centre or the nearby Bad Marienberg spa park.

For those who like to try regional specialities, the famous "Westerwälder Spießbraten" - a hearty roast pork with a spicy crust - is a must. Other delicacies such as potato dumplings or fresh apple pie should not be missed either.

Outdoor activities can be enjoyed here at any time of year: In summer, the nearby reservoir beckons for swimming and boating, while skiing and tobogganing are the order of the day in winter. Horse riding, fishing and cycling are also popular activities in the region.

Even on rainy days, there is plenty to discover. Why not plan a visit to the Westerwald Museum or nearby Sayn Castle?

The best time to visit Kausen is between May and October, when the weather is mild and nature is in full bloom. But even in winter, this region has its own special charm with snow-covered landscapes and cosy Christmas markets.

Kausen, Westerwald-Sieg (Altenkirchen district) - a destination that is definitely worth a trip! Our Travel Guide provides you with all the important information for your next holiday here.
