Paderborner Höhenweg – Naturwanderungen im Teutoburger Wald
Teutoburger Wald Tourismus planned a hike.
March 18, 2021
The Paderborner Höhenweg leads east of the city on many wonderfully natural paths through deep beech forests. You can expect picturesque valleys, the highest point in Paderborn and of course fantastic views.The long round starts in Neuenbeken and can be divided into a south and a north route as you wish. To do this, you connect Neuenbeken and the Dune Valley via a path that runs south directly along the railway tracks to either only walk the northern section or only the southern section. The hiking car park in the Dune Valley offers an alternative entry point to the route.From Neuenbeken you hike uphill right at the beginning to get into the forest on the northern slope of the Beketal. You will explore this extensively in several large curves that will eventually bring you down into the valley. On the other side of the river you cross a long, unlit railway tunnel. The following section through the forest leads you into the Dune valley. Here the trees will soon open and you will see one of the most beautiful views of the Höhenweg: the small viaduct, which spans the valley imposingly.Then you disappear again between the trees and climb up to the highest point on Paderborn soil. This is a bit hidden, but is marked with a cross. On the last section of the high trail, it slowly goes downhill again to Neuenbeken. On the way you will be amazed by an unusual beech tree that has two legs.
