Wümme and Varel Heath

Today I hiked for the first time one of the 24 North Paths in the district of Rotenburg (Wümme), namely the NORDPFAD Wümme and Vareler Heide. I was accompanied by my mum, who is very enthusiastic about hiking and with whom I already walked the West Highland Way in Scotland and who was also part of my England tour. The journey with the metronome from Hamburg Central Station was completed in 45 minutes without any…

Alster hiking trail

Today was spontaneous to me after an extensive walk and since I love the splashing of water I decided to take the train to Poppenbüttel and follow the Alster from the Alstertal to the beginning of the Außenalster at the road Fernsicht. The more northern part of the Alster hiking trail from Kayhude to Poppenbüttel I already walked, as it looks like there you can read in Alster hiking trail II – Kayhude to Poppenbüttel.…

Este hiking trail

G20 summit preparations in Hamburg – I don’t really have to be in the city! That’s why I spontaneously made my way to Buxtehude today to walk the Este hiking trail from there to Cranz on the top of the dike – a good decision! I got the tour proposal from my outdoor friends at “outdooractive”, it’s the hike “On the Estedeich through the Alte Land”. The distance is indicated with 14.4 km, my track…

Alster hiking trail II

Today the Alster hiking trail had to be used again for a long Sunday walk. This time it should be the northern section from Kayhude to Poppenbüttel. After I missed a big sight at my first section from Poppenbüttel to Jungfernstieg – namely the castle Henneberg or rather its replica – I definitely wanted to see it at the new route. Alster hiking trail from Kayhude: off you go So I took the train to…

Boberger lowland

The Boberger Niederung – hiking for in between Already Sunday and I haven’t done a hike this week? Actually not so wild, but next week Friday my best friend gets married, so hiking the next weekend will be flat. As best man, I’m probably fully committed to Friday and Saturday and Sunday is then pretty sure recovery (Gammeln!) announced ? So hop off the couch, put on your hiking gear and off we go! Even…

Wohldorf Forest and Duvenstedt Brook

Moin together! Today the weather lured me once again out of the house to undertake a small hike. Since I didn’t know exactly where I wanted to go, I was inspired by Google Maps. Looking at the map I noticed a very green corner north of Hamburg, near which the railway station Ohlstedt is located – so the decision for the Wohldorfer Wald and the Duvenstedter Brook had been made. Let’s go At Ohlstedt, childhood…

Nature reserve Hahnheide

Moin together! Today I set off with Benno to explore one of the oldest nature reserves in the Hamburg area, the NSG Hahnheide (Wikipedia) was already put under nature conservation in 1938. Among other things, the nature reserve is home to a natural forest in which nature is allowed to run its course, and dying trees or trees that have fallen as a result of frost or storm serve as deadwood for a large number…

Wasserkunst Elbe Island Kaltehofe Round of Rothenburgsort

After a long period of abstinence from hiking it was finally time again today. The old waterworks on the water art Elbe island Kaltehofe should be visited! The route to be hiked is with 13 kilometers for pretty much everyone who has a good basic condition. Water & Art? Water art! No. Even if the name suggests otherwise, water art is only the word for a system to promote, raise and guide water and has…
