Hikes around the Wienhagen Tower
The Wienhagen Tower is a worthwhile destination for a hike through a charming, hilly landscape on the border to the Bergisches Land. In the midst of the nature and landscape conservation area, the 16 m high observation tower is enthroned on a hilltop (479 m above sea level). The observation platform can be reached all year round via 76 steps and, on a clear day, offers a view as far as the Siebengebirge near Bonn. The lookout tower was first built of wood and was replaced in 1929 by today's concrete tower, which was painted in 2000 by the Kiersper artist Werner Baumgart.
The numerous, rather short hiking trails in the "Wienhagen" lead along forest paths. Those who prefer longer distances can reach the multiple award-winning gold village Rönsahl, the Lingesetalsperre or the Kerspetalsperre from the hiking parking area.
