Because of his height of 535 meters, the Entenberg is a popular take-off point for hang- and paragliding. It also offers a great view of Niederlaasphe and the Lahntal for hikers.
Distance 17.5 km
From Biedenkopf you will walk up into the forest and if you take the small detour to the Kolumbustempel, a wonderful view to the Landgrafenschloss on the opposite side is waiting for you. Another highlight will be the Perfstausee: The reservoir was built in 1984 after a flood catastrophe and is a popular destination for excursions today. It is the home of many birds. Behind Breidenstein, the trail climbs up to the main highlight of the hike: the Entenberg. The local mountain of Bad Laasphe is a popular take-off point for hang-gliders and paragliders and hikers will enjoy a great view of Niederlaasphe and the Lahn Valley. With magnificent views of Wittgenstein castle, you will finally hike down to Bad Laasphe.
Make a stop at the Perfstausee and enjoy the view across the lake and the wooded hills of the nature reserve from its panoramic terrace!
