The Crystal Cave, which was first entered by humans in 1974, is a unique natural beauty and well worth a visit. Moving on, you will hike through an idyllic meadow valley and later on get to the Weilburg wildlife park through the forest.
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. Walking across an open area with beautiful views, you will reach another forest. Moving on through this former mining area, you will pass the Silbersee and reach the Großer Weiher near Braunfels. The pond is a real paradise for birds and insects.
Via the L3451 (be careful) and through the forest you will now hike in the direction of the final destination of this stage: the marketplace in Braunfels.
