    On the old railway line from Dransfeld to Göttingen, the basalt stones from the Hoher Hagen quarry (on the Gauss tower) were formerly brought into the city, e.g. for cobblestone. Today, the rails are dismantled and there is a path that follows the old route, often as a ravine.
    The section offers a lot of nature and less experienced cyclists the opportunity to increase their condition. It always goes slightly uphill and once you have overestimated, then you just turn around and come with easy pedaling and rolling determined again in Göttingen. :-)

    On the old railway line from Göttingen to Dransfeld you can cycle up the mountain in a big bow and with a bearable incline. On the way there are beautiful views of Göttingen and the surrounding area and interesting old railway bridges.

    The path is gravel throughout and has a really pleasant slope.

    Wonderful to drive and varied when you look into the Leinetal. Every point of view is different!
