Things to See in Siegbach
The Wilhelmsteine ("William's Stones"), lying between Tringenstein and Wallenfels, are a group of pyrite monadnocks in the middle of the Schelderwald (a foothill of the Rothaargebirge range). Every year on Ascension Day, the Wilhelmsteine serve as a local pilgrimage place. A religious service is performed among them on this day.
The Wilhelmsteine, named after Count Wilhelm of Nassau, were in earlier times known as the Buschsteine. They were presumably the pre-Christian central holy place of the whole surrounding area. Nearby, at the Angelburg, from the early to high Middle Ages was an important crossroads of old long-distance trade roads. The Hohe Straße (High Road) or as it was also known Herborner Straße (Herborn Road) coming from the northeast crossed the great east-west trade road there, the Brabant Road, which ran from Leipzig by way of Cologne to the province of Brabant (nowadays in Belgium). Locally, it was also known as the Schelderwald Weg, and in old documents as strada publica (the public road). The Westfalen Weg (Westphalia Way) also joined the knot of log-distance roads here, following more or less today's Highway L3047 up to the Zollbuche ("Customs Beech" – a tree that marked a border in days of yore), and then reaching the Angelburg by way of Günterod and Salzbödesattel. Continuing north on this route, one could reach Bremen.
At the Angelburg, evidence of an important prehistoric settlement has been found.
Castle ruins can be found at Tringenstein and Wallenfels (only rubble heaps and dry moats).
