After we had finished the Paderborn Landroute, I was somehow missing the northeast of Paderborn, which is for the most part a military training area but has highlights such as the Hermannsdenkmal and the Externsteine.
We started the tour at Schlangen on a beautiful organic farm (with a sales stand) and first rolled the next 20 km "downhill" towards Paderborn and then headed north again past the Ems spring towards Detmold. The tour shouldn't have been so close to Paderborn because the bike paths and the area weren't so great - next time I would try to stay away from Paderborn here (I would have to look to see how far this is possible with the military training area) - to Detmold it went on bike paths, railroad paths and side streets for an ice cream at lunchtime. On the way my Garmin navigation crashed and wanted to guide me to Taiwan! It was planned to drive from there to the Externsteine, but a nice cyclist recommended us to make a detour to the Hermannsdenkmal. The ascent there is very crisp but also very worthwhile. After a rapid descent, it went with smaller inclines to the Externsteinen and then back to Schlangen.
On the whole a nice tour (apart from the city traffic near Paderborn), which should not be missing in the Paderborn country route.

Inspired by this collection:"250 kilometers through the middle of Westphalia - the Paderborner Land Route" komoot.de/collection/897708/250-kilometer-durch-die-mitte-von-westfalen-die-paderborner-land-routeHowever, I wanted day trips back to the starting point and with greater distances. So I have the above tour in 3 down tours, most of which run on the 250km tour.The third tour is the flatland stage and often runs on back roads, some of which are quite frequented by cars. Otherwise there are bike paths, farm roads and very quiet side streets.On this tour you can let the landscape act on you while driving (without having to worry about steep inclines) and let yourself be surprised by the changing landscapes and sights.

The options for a coffee / cake or a meal were only really possible at the end of the round. So we took a short break from bars and looked forward to an ice cream in Paderborn.
We didn't like the drive through Paderborn - “big city” entrance roads with heavy traffic and bad bike paths, maybe there are better ways into the city than the ones we used.

Büren was the ideal place to take a break - you will definitely find something to eat there - ours was a very tasty ice cream!

The start was the Solling oil mill near Höxter, on the one hand it was supposed to go a little along the Weser cycle path and to visit the wider area west of Höxter. First it went along the Weser and then along the Nethe to Brakel. Then north to Vörden (always uphill) to Eilversen and then downhill to Höxter. Here back on the Weser cycle path to Holzminden to eat the ice cream you deserve after 70km. Then back to Höxter we went on the “other” side of the Weser.
At the oil mill, the most delicious oils were bought for the strengthening salad in the evening. A nice varied tour on beautiful bike paths and quiet roads.

The Probstei had been on the plan for a long time and has now finally been put into practice. Last year I wanted to go to the "Korntage" (probstei.de/probsteier-korntage.html), but unfortunately I was also a victim of Covid-19. Unfortunately, the grain days are also canceled in 2021 - I hope that they will take place next year.
So we chose a tour suggestion from another cyclist (it's a shame I didn't save who - thank you dear strangers!) Through the provost and changed something that also served as a test track for Kettin's new bike.
Unfortunately, the weather on the Baltic coast was a bit moody and kept the sun out until after noon. The region and the paths are simply great and varied for cycling. Personally, I didn't think the stretch from "Schönberg Strand" along the beach was great - there are a lot of tourists on the way by foot, bike, scooter, etc. and you have to be very careful.
We will definitely be back for the "Corn Days"!

The starting point was the moor museum in Groß Hesepe and as many moors as possible or long in the moors should be cycled. In the "Rühler Moor", it was along gravel roads between the moor and the oil pumps. In the "Provinzialmoor" then first on a fixed "moor track", later on an overgrown track and through deep lanes - pure adventure. We only touched the “Southern Versener Moor”. Then it went to the Netherlands and through the "Bargenveen" with excellent bike paths and of course fantastic views. Back in Germany we went briefly to the “Geestmoor” and then straight through the “Dalum Wietmarscher Moor”. There are many information boards along the route that explain the formation of the moors, the nature and the use of the moors. A visit to the moor museum gives you a lot of background information.
It is impressive how bike-friendly the region is (in D and in NL anyway) and how easy the “traffic turnaround” could be. A very nice and varied tour!
