Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Renée planned a hike.
March 29, 2021
Today also starts with an ascent, because to return to the Ith-Hils-Weg, you first have to climb the ridge again. There you follow the ridge to the northwest. At the Leinebergland balcony you can take your first break and enjoy the view over the surrounding area. The small, covered refuge is located a little above the hiking trail and offers a great panorama from Hanover in the north to the Harz in the southeast. After a short detour into the valley and past Marienhagen, the hiking trail slowly winds its way uphill again to the Lönsturm on the Kanstein. The tower, built in 1928, has already been raised twice in order to tower over the surrounding beeches and from up here you have a unique 360 ° view. The following section of the hike is particularly beautiful, because from here the terrain becomes very rugged and stony again. Your path leads you steeply downhill between the cliffs and rocks. You cross an old quarry, which is good for a last break of the day and soon after you reach Salzhemmendorf. Here you can spend the night in the Ratskeller and end the day in the Ith-Sole-Therme.
