Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
The approx. 33 km long Marschbahn embankment is now a popular bicycle and hiking trail through the meadows and fields of the Vier- und Marschlande.The former line of the Kleinbahn was opened with a first section in 1921, with the line from the branch of the main line of the Bergedorf-Geesthacht Railway via Teufelsort to the branch of the line coming from Bergedorf towards the south, which was built in 1912, to the Zollenspieker terminus.
The other sections of the route followed until 1927, the last section of the route via Fünfhausen, Ochsenwerder, Tatenburg to Moorfleet was finished.
In 1952 the rail traffic was stopped again and the tracks have been almost completely removed. Today the marshland embankment is almost completely tarred and an ideal bike path.
Some of the old train stations have become rest stops or are privately owned.vierlanden.de/pages/83-marschbahndamm

The march track does not exist anymore, the Marschbahn dam remains. Locked for traffic and paved throughout, you can walk there undisturbed or cycling. Only now and then are roads crossed and there are unrestricted, but little-used sections. Benches, sometimes even with tables, invite you to rest.
