The whole area of Herscheid which not only includes Herscheid itself but other villages as well is 58.91 square kilometers. The lowest point is about 250 meters above sea level and the highest 663 m.

About 58 % of the area is forest, about 34 % farm land and 0.42 % water.

    Yummy updates here. The Windbeutel looks indeed massive. I hope you have done quite a bit of hiking before you ate it.

    Hi Sonja, I enjoyed reading your Herscheid tips. Like all places ending in ?scheid, this looks like a really nice area. I was interested to learn that Napoleon ordered the building of a tower for use in his mirror telegraph system. Thanks again for the two photos ? I have used them in two of my new Paris tips.

    Great Herscheid travel page with stunning photographs and excellent travel tips especially on restaurants and transportation. Apostelchurch, Spieker, Oestertal Dam and tv tower attract us the most. Thanks for the virtual tower. ~ho & pang
