"Like a fresh breeze" is how this region likes to describe itself and it truly is a refreshing, verdant area of largely unspoilt countryside with vast forests and tranquil river valleys. It is ideal for walkers and fans of the new sport of Nordic walking. The rivers Sieg, Dill, Lahn and Rhine encircle the Westerwald forest, many parts of which still remain completely wild.
Outside the region the Westerwald is known for its ceramics; pots, tiles and crockery, the high-tech ceramics used in innovative technology are also manufactured here.
Basalt is another of the Westerwald's natural resources. Visitors to the Basalt Park can find out more about the rock and its use, for instance as a traditional building material. The Westerwald Country Museum in the picturesque little town of Hachenburg is a prime example.

Directions: Situated on the Eastern Rhine side
