Your third stage starts in the city of Alfeld with its historic downtown. Here you can explore the city for a while before starting your tour today.You leave the city and cross the leash. On the other bank you follow the Leine-Heide-Radweg in a northerly direction. First, wooded hills still rise up on both sides of the Leinetal, but soon the landscape becomes flatter. Here it goes over the wide and juicy meadows of the leash. In spring and early summer, the meadows are regularly flooded. To counteract this, dikes and overflow ponds along the course of the river were created.After passing Gronau and Elze, the bike path winds its way between the line and numerous ponds and lakes. Many of these ponds are former gravel extraction areas that have been extensively renatured after their decommissioning. The largest excavator holes are the Kolding lakes. These are now under conservation and from a lookout tower you can watch waterfowl in their new home.From the Koldinger Seen, the cycle path winds its way along the Leineufer over green meadows and along the Maschsee into downtown Hanover.In Alfeld, you can provide you with provisions for your stage in the morning, or you can plan a rest in Gronau, Elze or Sarstedt. The cities are along the current route and on a small detour you will find there various inns, bakeries or cafes.
