The roots of the cooperative system lie in the Westerwald. Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen also left his mark in the Wiedtal. Under this motto, a guided hike of 12 km through the Wiedtal monastery landscape starts on Sunday, 7 July 2019 at 10:00 a.m.. The participation fee is € 4.00 per person. Finally, there will be an opportunity to stop for a snack on the Klosterbergterrassen, where the start and finish of the hike will also be.         

In 1879 Raiffeisen intended to establish a "Society for Social Nursing with Special Consideration of the Rural Population". This society was to deal mainly with nursing care for the elderly. He thought of conceiving these "Societas Caritatis" on the model of the Waldbreitbach religious communities. In 1868, Waldbreitbach's then mayor Reusch also had contact with Raiffeisen in connection with the foundation of a loan cash association. Further stops on the hike are the Hausen Franciscan Monastery and the Claus Chapel in Niederbreitbach. Registrations with the tourism federation Wiedtal under info@wiedtal.de or 02638 - 4017.
