Quickly put on your hiking shoes before the announced storm and head for the Landwehr. This time we shortened the lap a bit, because there was already a lot of grumbling around us. Almost stayed dry.The Alte Landwehr was built from 1397 to 1406 about 4 kilometers west of the city gates of Lüneburg. The Landwehr consisted of up to five earth walls, which were separated by moats up to two meters deep. Starting at the Ilmenau near the Goseburg in Lüneburg, the Landwehr initially led south of Bardowick westwards to the area of Vögelsen. Here it bent south and led west past Reppenstedt, from there we started to the Hasenburger Bach.From then on it ran along the dammed up water to the red lock on the llmenau. Watchtowers were installed at the checkpoints south of Bardowick and at Reppenstedt, and another watchtower on the Hasenburger Bach was preserved between 1450 and 1480.I don't know exactly whether the Königsweg at the gates of Lüneburg is Via Regia, the salt road to Mölln. However, it is obvious.
Nice tour with great photos. Thanks for the history info
Thanks Neele, very much.
Nice history excursion, by the way there are naked wall trails, I had a "traumatic" encounter in the Harz Mountains in 2018 ... phew ...
Hot Hike 👍🤩

Yes, Knut Ursula, naked walking would not be mine either.Thanks, So ..., the round was fun.
Did the round again today with a better starting point and a little longer on the Landwehr. Add a photo of the starting point here, where you can also park well.
