Pristine nature, history and relaxing in a rural idyll. These are three main themes on a hiking adventure through the Osnabrück region. Around 100 marked hiking trails lead through this wonderful area. They run through flat areas in the North German Plain and across the green slopes of the Teutoburg Forest and the Wiehen Mountains.

Here, you find everything from fantastically laid-out circular trails to widely known long-distance hiking trails. Then, there's the UNESCO Global Geopark TERRA.vita with its infinite variety and space for hiking adventures. The trails here are called TERRA.tracks and combine nature with a fascinating geological past.

We would like to introduce you to 12 of these TERRA.tracks in this Collection. From short walks to extended hiking Tours, there is something here for everyone. The well-designed circular trails follow wide forest paths and narrow trails. They give you a taste of the region’s natural history, showcase magnificent views and help you to get to know this unique landscape to the fullest.

Mixed and pine forests, moorland, wide meadows, springs and colourful heaths – a foray through the UNESCO Geopark TERA.vita brings you close to nature. You choose whether you hike 3 kilometres (1.8 miles) or 20 kilometres (12.4 miles) – a leisurely stroll or a longer hike?

Follow the red ‘T’ on a white background and you are guaranteed a little adventure immersed in history and nature. No matter which Tour you choose, welcome to Osnabrück Land!
