In the Ilsetal you should listen carefully since the chirping of birds and the splashing of the little river will delight the heart of every nature lover. From the Ilsetal, you follow the Lahnwanderweg trail marking to the right uphill to the Großgemeindestein, where two small huts invite you for a rest. This is the place where people commemorate the regional reform in 1975. Many trails meet at this stone which stands exactly in the middle of the new large municipality. At the Großgemeindestein, follow the Lahnwanderweg signposts (markings) in direction Windhof. Later, the trail leads steeply down to the mill Wahlbachsmühle, where you cross the young Lahn river. Afterwards, you will arrive in Saßmannshausen.
From Saßmannshausen the trail leads uphill, along the Friedwald and passes the rustic Kamelseiche (camel oak) at the "gebranntes Köpfchen" (burned little head). Leaving the forest, you are welcomed by yellow flowering broom bushes. This place will also provide a beautiful view into the Lahn valley and the hike now continues along the ridge. Later on, the school buildings of Wittgenstein castle appear into view. The castle that was built in the 12th century is used as a boarding school today and is the landmark of Bad Laasphe. Having walked up and down the past few kilometres, the hiker may enjoy a refreshing break at the Schloss Café (please note the opening hours). Once you have passed the historic cemetery, you will finally descend until you reach the first houses of Bad Laasphe.
Walking through the picturesque old town of Bad Laasphe, one passes the town's most beautiful half-timbered house and the old town fountain before reaching today's stage destination at the Haus des Gastes. Bad Laasphe also offers numerous possibilities for food and accomodation.
