The 225 km Weserberglandweg route starts at the source of the Weser river in Hann. Münden and ends at Porta Westfalica. It was certified as a “Qualitätsweg Wanderbares Deutschland” (Premium Route by Wanderbares Deutschland) back in autumn 2012. The route takes hikers past romantic castles and palaces, historic old towns and through enchanting nature.
