    When the land ditch was built from 1303 - probably after an attack by the Ascanian Duke Otto in 1301 - the aim was to include as many natural bodies of water as possible in its course, the names of which were sometimes even lost as a body of water designation. It was completed around 1350.How this Landwehr works is not fully understood. In any case, because of its length, it could not be fully manned and the onslaught of enemies could only be stopped and not prevented. Probably the function lies in this and in the obvious marking of customs boundaries.As a cultural monument of particular city and state historical value, which has a formative value for the cultural landscape, the entire course was entered in 2015 in the list of monuments under the Monument Protection Act (Schleswig-Holstein) and thus placed under monument

    The Schwedenschanzen are historically interesting as part of Lübeck's medieval Landwehr (information board on site, more on this e.g. here:übecker_Landgraben). Since a path leads across the ramparts, it's a little undulating up and down and is therefore a nice change from a technical point of view.

    The historical significance of the Schwedenschanze has already been mentioned and is an interesting part of this route.
    The trail is easy to drive on, offers a lot of variety and technically interesting and attractive route areas in a beautiful forest area.
