The Westergellersen water nature trail was set up in 2010 and extends over a distance of approx. 16 km, including along the Brünbach from its source to the mouth of the Luhe.Display boards along the way provide information on the topic of water, from rainwater use to natural forests and ecosystems to water supply for residents.Unfortunately we found out today that not all signposts are there anymore. But we had already chosen the route beforehand.The stairwell built in 1603 is also on the way, it was used as a shelter for cattle until mid-1980, until it was restored with great effort in 1984.The building material of the storage facility comes from the local environment: the solid timber frame is made of oak from Eckersfeld, the typical landscape tree of Lower Saxony, as are the exterior stairs and the trapezoidal planks of the infill.The roof is thatched from the former bog below the Schilsberg and covered with sods from the Westergellerser Heide.
Didn't think the path was so long. 💧Water is always the most important thing. Great pictures and history from the stairwell. It looks great now. You don't see newts every day either.
Right Dolle, the stairwell is a piece of jewelry.
Do you allow yourself water? Picture 12 is sensational 👍🤩👌
Thank you 😊 In this case, of course, your praise goes to Sascha 📸, explains itself.It's a shame that you can't specify the different “photographers” when hiking together, because at least with the web version of Komoot there is something added underneath. Or do I have a knowledge gap?

They have been living in the Waldbad Westergellen in cooperation with swimmers and non-swimmers for years. Watching allowed. Don't catch, of course. The shallow water at the moment makes it easier to discover.
