March 29, 2021
On the fifth stage of the Ith-Hils-Weg you slowly leave the picturesque hilly landscape of the Leinebergland behind you and it becomes more rugged and steeper again. You will notice that on the first ascent of the day on the Steinberg. Along the edge of the forest you follow the slope to the Gerzer Klippen, a popular rock among boulderers. Today's section is characterized by short, steep ascents and descents and when you reach the cute Reuberghütte after seven kilometers, you have more than earned a break. From here it goes downhill into the Glenetal, where you should take some time to visit the Lippoldshöhle. According to legend, the robber Lippold lived here and held the mayor's daughter prisoner. Equipped with a flashlight, you can explore the narrow chambers and tunnels of the cave. On the other side of the valley, the last ascent of the day is waiting for you. Up to the 314 meter high Kikedal it goes now. Then follow the ridge for four kilometers until you turn left and descend to Duingen. There you can stay at the Hotel Pöttjerkrug.
