Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
On the old railway line from Dransfeld to Göttingen, the basalt stones from the Hoher Hagen quarry (at the Gauss tower) used to be brought into the city, e.g. for cobblestones. Today the rails have been dismantled and a path has been created that follows the old route, often as a ravine.
The section offers a lot of nature and less experienced cyclists the opportunity to improve their stamina. It's always a little uphill and if you've overestimated yourself, you just turn around and come back to Göttingen with a gentle kick and roll. :-)
