Hiking trail at the Feuereiche on the Rothaarsteig, Olsberg Bruchhausen
The Schmalahtal tour starts at the Feuereiche on the Rothaarsteig and leads past the golden village of Elleringhausen with views of the Bruchhauser Steine information center. A detour up to the stone giants is recommended here. An entrance fee is required to visit the Bruchhauser Steine and must be paid at the InfoCenter. This detour will add about 2 km to the walk, which is well worth it.
A view of the privately owned Wasserschloß and the European gold village of Bruchhausen rewards the effort of the easy climb. You also reach the Silbersee, Brilon's drinking water. It is not for nothing that the lake has this beautiful name.
Start at the small parking lot directly at the Feuereiche, between Olsberg-Bruchhausen/Elleringhausen and Willingen/Brilon.Cross the road once.Well signposted and marked with the B1 trail sign and the Rothaarsteig trail sign, the hiking trail leads around the road towards Bruchhausen. Through the gateway to the Rothaarsteig and below the Bruchhauser Steine InfoCenter, you have a beautiful view into/above the gold village.Through the Bruchhauser Steine information center, you can also hike to the stones for an entrance fee.(additional approx. 2 km). The 4 stone giants are definitely worth tackling these additional kilometers. ( Further information at: www.stiftung-bruchhauser-steine.de )The route now continues uphill around the Istenberg. The Silbersee, Brilon's drinking water, is located on the edge of the path on the last third of the tour. A rest here is recommended. However, the water may not be used for refreshment. Signs indicate this.The last section then leads uphill back to the hikers' parking lot at the Feuereiche.
Attention: the Silbersee is the drinking water for the town of Brilon. Please do not refresh yourself in the lake.
