Hiking Highlight (Segment)
We started from the parking lot station. Since you cross a really big road and walk along it for a few minutes, we first had the impression that it is not a good starting point. But that's not true. Very fast one is then at the Noor. It is a 2 hour tour. You do not need any real highlights, even if the carved owl is already impressive and the white stone quite beautiful to look at. The path is very easy to walk and pleasant. I particularly liked the different views over the Noor, as you get around by walking around, always a new view. At the end it goes again on a main street long, then in Eckernförde to move towards the station. The tour is but managed so that you go through a quiet residential area. Highlight at the end: from the train station you are very fast in the pedestrian zone, where you can strengthen yourself in nice cafes. However, we did not get a seat at the renowned Café Held on Sunday, but we were able to drink really delicious coffee in Café Haupt.

About three-quarters of the Windebyer Noores are surrounded by a hiking trail that runs partly on the old railway line of the Eckernförde circular railways from Eckernförde to Owschlag - the complete circumnavigation is possible via Eckernförde streets. Since the trail was not consistently led around on the banks of the entire Noores and about a quarter was left out, the forests of the break and reed belt have been preserved in some undisturbed location.
The Windebyer Noor has been leased since 1957 by a professional fisherman family business in the third generation, who manages the Noor with eel, perch, bream, carp, roach and pikeperch and since 1990 increasingly with whitefish. The company also rents fishing boats. From the time until 1929, when there was still the connection with the Baltic Sea, herring stocks could hold, but lately decreased. These pegs reach about 15 cm in size smaller than those in the open sea.
