It goes to the Olsberg summit (700m above sea level) via the well-known cliff path. There you can enjoy the special view of the Kneipp spa town of Olsberg. This hike is a Wanderbares Deutschland quality tour and rightly so.

In addition to natural paths and many viewpoints, the tour also offers refreshment stops on the return to the town. At the summit, you can enjoy a view that is second to none. The natural treading area at the Luisenquelle invites you to tread water according to Kneipp. The Olsberg Kneipp hiking trail has been voted the most beautiful hiking trail in NRW by viewers of the WDR. This summit cross tour is the 4th stage of the Kneipp trail. The "Kneipp" theme is simply an added value when hiking. Information boards at the natural treading point Luisenquelle explain the practical method of treading water. Just give it a try. It's well worth it.

The tour is available as a print-out from the tourist office.
