March 18, 2021
The Osterberg is Lügde's local mountain. It is a special destination because an old Easter tradition is still cultivated here. On the first Sunday after the first spring moon, the Lügder wooden wheels roll down the slope with burning straw to welcome spring. But the Osterberg is also worth a hike on all other days of the year, because from here you have a wonderful view.The route begins in the old town of Lügder at the impressive Kilian's Church, which dates back to the 12th century. You wander over the Emmer and soon leave the last houses behind you. Now you follow the course of the Eschenbach on a path through the idyllic Meintetal. You cross the stream twice to make a detour to the Siebenquellen before you start the ascent to the Osterberg.Arrived at the highest point, you pass the Gasthaus Kempenhof, where you can stop. Then you slowly make your way back up on the slope. You will be accompanied by the great views of the valley. Soon you will pass the Easter Cross, which marks the place where the Easter Cycle Run takes place. A refuge and a lounger are available here for a break with a wonderful view over Lügde. Then you hike back down into the city, where you get back to Kilian's Church on the banks of the Emmer.If you still feel like relaxing, you should definitely plan a detour to the Emmerauenpark. There is a small beach, a beach volleyball court, a café and an adventure playground.
