The spatial boundaries of the historic Westerwald region are not exactly defined. The forest area, which is shared by Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, is considered a popular destination among campers because of its mountainous landscape, numerous rivers and lakes, and picturesque villages. The Westerwald is a natural playground for camping on the lake and the natural campground par excellence. The varied landscape ensures a long-lasting camping fun all year round. Many small bodies of water such as the Krombachtalsperre or the Dreifelder Weiher have campsites directly adjacent to the shore and are ideal for bathing and swimming fun among small forest areas and idyllic cultural landscapes. Especially for families with children, these natural treasures are ideal for frolicking in the fresh forest air. With the border rivers Rhine, Lahn, Dill and Sieg, the region also offers itself as a first choice destination for relaxed boat trips. Picturesque little villages such as Höhr-Grenzhausen with its half-timbered houses or the castles of Hachenburg and Westerburg exude a medieval charm far from big city life. The historic Westerwald is ideal for those who want to change gear for a while.
