Tips

  • Alopex

    Mostly the stones are dry and can be crossed in big steps. For children or small dogs it can be a bit difficult. Not recommended at high tide, as they are smooth and the water is deep. Since it is easier barefoot just a few meters down the river and with rolled-up trousers to cross the flat place through which the agricultural vehicles or riders must.

    According to the information sign, this is where the actual "end of the world" is. Coming from Alhausen the path ends here at the Nister, on the right the steep cliffs and you can only go further via the "stone island".
    When it is not flooding, the Nister can be crossed over large stones here - it works - mostly - quite well, but you also have to make a smaller jump from time to time. But since the water is not deep, there is no greater danger if you "miss" a stone ;-).
    This is the "alternative route" World Heritage nature trail, which is signposted from the World Heritage lookout point - the route is very good and you can hardly miss the rest of the way.

    Not a normal walk, on this path it goes steeply downhill in sections. Only suitable for experienced hikers .....

    The Triittsteine are also called "Steinzel" and represent the actual "end of the world" after which the nature trail is named.

    The stones can be a bit slippery. The best thing to do is take off your shoes and walk over barefoot ...

    The detour is a must. Children should be offered a helping hand. But doable.

    In winter, when the water is relatively high, the stones are not accessible. Next bridge only 1 km further 🤷
