The Schmelzmühle will be on your right. Here you can have a look at an old document (a license for using the mill) as well as the big mill wheel. The hospitable mill has been owned by the family since 1844. It is not only locals who appreciate the bread menu with farmer's breakfast, well-ripened hand cheese and a hearty homemade sausage. Afterwards hikers will walk through the meadows along the edge of the forest, through the idyllic Salzbödetal.
The Schönemühle at the entrance to Salzböden is the ideal place for a coffee break. Passing Salzböden and crossing the little brook that gives the village its name, the trail now ascends steeply to the Altenberg with an altitude of 299 m. At the top there is a wonderful place to rest and unwind. After approximately 600 comfortable meters you will reach the branch off to Lollar. Now please follow the access path signposts again.
In the Wehrholz you have the possibility to admire the bird shelter with its many different and decorative bird houses. Just before reaching Lollar as your stage destination, you finally cross the Lahn, which has meanwhile become a stately river. Take the Marburger Straße to the right to reach the centre of the village. Compared to the rural village of Fronhausen, Lollar appears quite urban. Time for a stroll, a cup of ice cream or a nice stop for a bite to eat.
