Etappe 07: Von Bielefeld bis Oerlinghausen – Hermannshöhen
Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Teutoburger Wald Tourismus planned a hike.
December 15, 2020
The seventh stage of the Hermannshöhen begins in the city center of Bielefeld. After a detour to Sparrenburg on the mountain of the same name, it goes over a narrow green strip out of the city.Bielefeld is soon behind you and you are walking gently uphill to the ridge of the Teutoburg Forest. The next destination is the Iron Anton. This observation tower was actually called the Bismarck Tower, but due to its unique steel construction it is only called Iron Anton today.Incidentally, here you have also reached the highest point of today's stage and so from now on it's mainly downhill. You cross another motorway and then continue on the slopes of the Teutoburg Forest to the stage destination Oerlinghausen.
