On your second day, you will travel through the tranquil landscape of Leine-Bergland. You leave Göttingen heading north and cycle with beautiful views over the Leine meadows. The leash flows here through a wide, green valley and on both sides you can see in the distance wooded hills.You pass the baroque building ensemble of the monastery estate Marienstein near Nörten-Hardenberg and afterwards the Leine-Heide-cycle path leads you directly along the riverbank.At Northeim you leave the leash and after crossing the Rhume, a tributary of the leash, you reach the Northeim Lake District. The former dredging lakes are today an important bird sanctuary and home to countless waterfowl. Especially migratory birds stop here on their long journeys, before they continue to fly. The path leads you along the edge of the large nature reserve and through small villages on to Einbeck.Here it is worth a detour into the well-preserved old town with its numerous half-timbered houses. After strolling the narrow streets, you can choose a café or restaurant for a leisurely break.From Einbeck, the Leinetal becomes narrower and below wooded mountains, it continues on the Leine shore to the stage destination Alfeld.
