ThiebergTrichterTour Neuenkirchen: Kiessand & Trichter (Steinfurter Land)
HE-MAN went for a hike.
August 8, 2021
The tour is nothing for friends of soft, sprung forest paths. With the exception of the path on the Offlumer See, the path impresses with its 100% asphalt content - often lined with maize that is now two-man-high. Unfortunately, the view of the lake is often blocked by thick bushes. Oh what the heck: you were in the fresh air. There were also delicious cakes in the Seecafé. steinfurter-land.de/sl/zu-fuss-unterwegs/wege/ThiebergTrichterTour-Neuenkirchen.php Unfortunately no comparison to the Teutoschleifchen Sloopsteener Seerunde!
A real shame! Some of the Steinfurter Land hikes lead over plenty of asphalt, e.g. the tour "Metelener Heide". There are much more pleasant hiking opportunities in the Steinfurter Land. My highlight is the round on the Frischhofsbach between Mesum and Hauenhorst. At the moment, however, short sections of the path are very overgrown, but still passable.
With the high proportion of asphalt, one notices time and again that the Münsterland is primarily a land for cyclists. I've noticed that several times. Hiking is still in its infancy here if you are not in the relevant areas such as Teuto, Baumberge etc.@ Gabi: I planned my tour in the Metelener Heide / Kieferngrundsee myself and did not follow the recommended route. So I avoided too much asphalt.
Is not so bad. I should have known better. I've already made experiences with the tours of the "Steinfurter Land" tourism association. Some are not that bad at all, such as the round at Haus Wellbergen or Speicherrunde Altenberg, but the tour "Metelener Heide", which we have already run, was really not that great. In the forest of Metelen we will definitely run again and I didn't know the hiking area near Mesum. Thanks to both of you for the tips.
