From here we walk down into a beautiful valley with mining history. Along an old stone wall you will get to the entrance of the animal park. The animal population ranges from fallow deer and wild horses to wolf and lynx. The pond in front of the park offers a good opportunity for a little rest.
Behind the animal park, you follow the markings across the road B456, walk through an idyllic meadow valley and finally reach the signpost "Kristallhöhle". The "Kristallhöhle", which was first entered by humans in 1974, is a unique natural beauty and well worth a visit.
You now hike through a rustic forest area in the direction of Weilburg. In Weilburg the trail first leads downhill along the Frankfurter Straße and then through the old town gate into the picturesque old town. The Lahnwanderweg trail now passes the castle complex, which is worth a visit, and ends at the final destination of the stage, the memorial to the victims of the war in 1870/71.
