On day 5 we hike stage 6, which takes us from Bispingen to Soltau.In Bispingen we pass the Ole Kerk right after the start. The stone church, built in 1353, is one of the oldest structures on the Lüneburg Heath.Shortly afterwards it goes into the forest. First on wide forest and farm roads and from the adventure playground, which we reach after 3 km, on beautiful natural paths and narrow paths through the pine forests.With a share of well over 50% of the route, the forest theme is also the defining element of this stage. Since many paths and paths are very beautiful, intensive "forest bathing" is the order of the day.After about 5 km we meet the Luhequelle. The fact that the source looks like two small beautiful lakes is due to the fact that the Luhe mostly flows underground and only comes to the surface in Bispingen.Through forests and past fields it goes to Kreuzberg, the last heather area of the Nordheide, and from there to Heide Park Soltau, which we reach after around 16 km.On the rest of the way, extensive forest bathing is again the order of the day, and after around 19 km we reach the Ahlftener ponds. These fishing and rearing ponds, created between 1968 and 1976, are a real gem.From there it goes to Soltau. After 23 km we reach the end of the stage in the Böhmepark. We then hike the first 3 km of stage 7, as planned, so that we can reduce tomorrow's double stage to 30 km.Highlights of "Stage 6 - Heath rivers and the Kreuzberg"- Bispingen (old stone church "Ole Kerk"),- pine groves,- Luhequelle,- Heide Park Resort,- "City of Games" Soltau
