Uphill to the local mountain of Bad Laasphe! At the summit of the 535 m high Entenberg, you can not only admire the flying skills of hang gliders and paragliders, hikers also enjoy the stunning view of Niederlaasphe and the upper Lahntal. With all the enthusiasm please don't forget to sign the summit book! Further highlights lie ahead. The Perfstausee was built in 1984 after a flood catastrophe and is a popular destination for excursions today. The surrounding nature reserve primarily provides a refuge for water birds. As a finale, the Biedenkopfer Wald (forest) offers beautiful views once again. At the Kolumbustempel, you will be delighted by a very charming perspective towards the old town of Biedenkopf and the Landgrafenschloss.
A stop at Perfstausee with panoramic views over the lake and the wooded hills around the nature reserve - magnificent!
