Experience the Westerwald without limits
Not far from the urban centres of Rhine-Ruhr and Rhine-Main, refreshing river valleys, high plateaus with spectacular views and lush forests spread out over the landscape. You can unwind amidst delightful nature and romantic towns with historical town centres such as Herborn, Hachenburg, Montabaur and Bad Hönningen. Disabled accessible tours are available in the medieval city of Hachenburg.
A glimpse into industrial history
Basalt has been mined for more than 100 years from the quarry in Stöffel, and a visit there brings industrial history to life while making it tangible. Today Stöffel Park is an exciting cultural and landscape park spread across a total of 140 hectares. In addition to demonstrative exhibits on the basalt mining industry, Stöffel Park is home to a significant fossil collection. 25 million years of geological history come to life. The park is accessible to those with limited mobility.
A visit to the "land of pottery"
The southern Westerwald is characterised by one of the oldest cultural techniques of mankind - ceramic making. Around Höhr-Grenzhausen, the so-called "Kannenbäckerland" (land of pottery), Germany's centre of ceramic production is located. The education and research centre, with its wide range of ceramic features, is the largest in Europe. In the Ceramics Museum of Westerwald in Höhr-Grenzhausen, you can explore the history and modern era of ceramics in around 2,500 m² of handicapped-accessible exhibition space under one roof.
Handicapped-accessible swimming experience
If you want to unwind after an eventful day in Westerwald, you'll find well-deserved relaxation in the indoor swimming pool in Altenkirchen. The public bathhouse has a multi-use pool, a water play garden and an infrared cabin. In addition, various water gymnastics courses are offered. For people with limited mobility, as well as wheelchair users, the pool is completely accessible.
