Renée planned a hike.
March 29, 2021
Today's stage is not long, but there is a decent climb ahead of you. The many views over the surrounding area make up for the effort. After the first ascent over 100 meters in altitude, you are back on the Ith-Hils-Weg. In an arc you circle the last foothills of the Ith ridge and now hike towards Hils. The Roter Fuchs restaurant halfway on this stage offers a good place to stop for refreshments.After a short rest, the last ascent is waiting for you. Past the Voglerblick viewpoint, you climb the Hils ridge. If you are free from fear of heights, you can climb the 15 meter high Wilhelm Raabe Tower and enjoy a great view of the Weser and Leinebergland. Shortly afterwards you pass the Bare Cell, the highest point of the Hil at 480 meters above sea level.In an arc you follow the Hils ridge to the east and finally descend into the valley to Grünenplan. Here you can spend the night in Lampes Posthotel. The Erich Mäder Glass Museum in town is also worth a visit, because glass production has a long tradition in the town and can be traced back to the 11th century.
