The Westerwald Region

The Westerwald region is little known outside of Germany but is one of the best maintained Nature Reserve Parks within Germany.
The woods, streams, rivers and lakes are full of wildlife. The little red squirrel now virtually extinct in the UK can be seen regularly scurrying around the local forests.

This combined with the many varieties of woodland birds, woodpeckers are commonly heard if not so easily seen, make the area superb for the nature lover, walker or cyclist.

There is local history to explore, and many small local festivals take place throughout the summer,  which makes the Westerwald an excellent place to visit, relax and enjoy.
