Stage description

N.B.: We don't have an English description of the stage just yet. We'll give you the German version for now until the English version is ready.

Von Oberkirchen geht es erst südlich durchs Tal bis kurz vor Lüttmecke. Dann westlich auf einem Forstweg aufwärts. Dort beginnt der Skulpturenwald. Weiter ein Stück aus Asphalt nach Süden und dann über einen Forstweg weiter hinauf nach Schanze. Dann geht es auf Waldwegen erst östlich, dann südlich an Kühhude vorbei und weiter durch viel Wald mit gelegentlichen Ausblicken ziemlich stetig südwärts. Kurz vor Bad  Berleburg ein Stück durch landwirtschaftliche Flächen und wieder durch Wald mehrfach abbiegend hinab nach Bad Berleburg.

Zwar sind die Wege angenehm zu gehen, aber besonders spannend ist diese Etappe nicht.
