Hike over Hohenhonnef or the Tretschbachtal to Löwenburg, back over the Breiberge.
This hike is a classic, but not quite as accessible and therefore less crowded than the more easily attainable Drachenfels. Here you can hike alone on forest paths, only interrupted by birds singing. The first destination is the Löwenburg, one of the mountains of the Siebengebirge. From its summit, the view extends wonderfully over the Rhine valley, the Eifel and as far as Bonn and Cologne. Here, too, the possibilities of ascent are numerous. The most idyllic is probably the way via the Tretschbach valley. After you leave the starting point in Rommersdorf behind you, you hike through a typical “Siefental“ along picturesque forest paths and over wooden bridges, towards the summit of the Löwenburg. Another possibility, and perhaps a little more comfortable, is to take the path across the former Hohenhonnef lung sanatorium. You can reach this way from the center of Honnef along the Bergstraße. No matter which way you choose, you will dive right into the middle of the Siebengebirge Nature Park.
On the way to Löwenburg you will pass the restaurant “Löwenburger Hof“, which is a good place to stop for a break.
For the way back, we recommend the walk over the “Breiberge“, which consist of the Großer (Big) and Kleiner (Small) Breiberg. This path is a bit more adventurous, but offers wonderful views of the Drachenfels and the Wolkenburg. On narrow paths along the hillside or over ridges, it slowly leads between beech trees back down into the valley towards Rommersdorf.
