Mountain Biking Highlight
In the ice age before approx. Huge glaciers shifted south of the Scandinavian mountains for 600,000 years. The local landscape was covered by a 300-400 meter thick layer of ice. The ice masses carried huge masses of stone, sand and rubble with them. As the temperature increased, the ice melted, and the rock debris sank to the ground. In this way, the Nienburg-Meppener Geest was created.
The eastern edge of this geest can be seen here. Melt water that ran off to the Weser Valley washed deep gullies into the Geestrand. A special feature of the landscape is the "Binner Schlucht", a dry valley that descended from the Geestrand to the Weser. Extensive coniferous and deciduous forests invite you to take relaxing walks in attractive surroundings.
The landscape of beech, large ash and yew trees is typical of this landscape.mittelweser-tourismus.de
