Meine schönsten Touren im Lipperland.
I told my son a lot about OpenStreetMap, how Kommot and other apps relate to it, how I can change content such as roads and POIs in Wikipedia and also leave notes for other mappers.
A note on a tree was posted at Johannistor. We visited him on this walk, mapped it in OSM, removed the error and created a highlight in Komoot 😀So we went for a walk for the community. 😀
Very nice hike.This is my home, I was there very often as a teenager, but of course we were never allowed into the military facility, so I don't know where this stone staircase led to. Back then there were stripes on a high fence and behind them were dogs. Photography is also strictly forbidden, even getting close was dangerous.We often went to the Alt-Burg-Sternberg, as we said, even in winter with the sled down the hills, at that time there was still a lot of snow, sometimes up to 1-2m high.
Get recommendations on the best single tracks, peaks, & plenty of other exciting outdoor places.
I've been to the area before, but a little lame on foot. That's why I wanted to go to the tower another time. The route was now much shorter than indicated by kommot, otherwise I would have gone a little further. Destination of many local families. Magnificent area to fly to the drone.
Through the discussions around the Ilse valley in Lemgo, I wanted to know where the Ilse flows along. That's why I took the original map material from OpenStreetMap and tried to understand where the Ilse came from. This meadow is a wetland in which the Ilse originates. A part of the way down in Vosshagen you can also see a small pond, which is, however, close to a private property.I actually wanted to go back through Vosshagen. However, the path is blocked with a sign that gives an indication of private property.
I wanted to try out how much I can go. I had planned a tour to Sankt Rafael and the Mönkeberg because this is new territory for me. It should continue via Brüntorf and Matorf back to Entrup. The last 3 km would have led me along a main road. A rather boring piece. As the city bus happened to drive, I decided to give myself the rest. 😀
In the floodplain area of the Werre, a larger area was designed close to nature. Examples of environmentally conscious, ecologically oriented garden and landscape design are shown here. For the private garden area, for example, various hill beds and a herb spiral have been created as demonstration objects. A farm and pharmacy garden, several orchards and hedges made from local trees complement the plantings.The mill was first mentioned in the 14th century. In the end, she found the owner of the city of Bad Salzuflen in various ways. First, electricity was generated here. 30 years ago, he successfully set up an educational center, the Heerser Mühle environmental center.
My son surprised me the other evening that he would like to go for a walk. So we drove a bit by car to find a suitable place. Here on this mountain he said "stop" and we started. At first there was only a dead end to a field.Then we discovered a path that leads around the mountain. The path is not marked in Komoot and so I am here as an official discoverer 😂 and raise my flag 🏴☠️On the way we had a picnic, found an empty bird's nest and even a deer on our way.

There is no bad weather, only bad clothing. So goes a saying. In fact, my inner weaker self kept me at home, but I had no chance to follow the charm of my best friends and the prospect of coffee ☺️ Thank you for your motivation 👍🏼This time we go our little lap backwards. First past a field with white mustard (checked via Flora incognita) and beet fields.
The Dreiwasser-Eck, as I call Hoffmann's Wiesen, is the confluence of Saltze, Bega and Werre in Bad Salzuflen. I discovered the location by chance on an OpenStreetMap map. Actually, it was a bridge at the end of the path, which turned out to be an impassable viaduct.
In the drizzle I walked around the Pottkuhle with a friend. The "Pottkuhlenteich Landscape Park, Dörentrup", as it is officially called, is a former clay mining area, which is renatured and used extensively. So similar to a natural forest cell, only without the special protection of a nature reserve. The forest can grow here as it wants. The paths are still maintained.Local residents say that the lake used to be the village's rubbish dump. Whole cars are said to be in the lake. On the other hand, it is very popular with anglers.The many wild geese were very exciting. At the beginning of the route we met two, later four wild goose families with their chicks who plucked grass on the meadow. Papa Gans was always watching us, but they didn't become aggressive or hissed at us. We approached carefully and then passed them.In the video below, I captured a family for you. I've never been able to observe the animals in my life so close.
In the meantime, the drizzle subsided a bit, so that we let the drone take off briefly. But the picture didn't turn out that way because I wanted to get her down quickly. Water, electricity and electronics don't get along very well 😀
