The tour goes through three "countries" and ONE LAND and I won't let idiots ruin that. The only fences that I accept (gritted teeth ähn) are those to protect nature from humans.The round is reminiscent of a dolphin 🐬 and also has a lot to do with water. It goes from Lauenburg (SH) eastwards along the forested steep Elbhang to Boizenburg (MV) and then further south to the ferry pier ⛴ to Bleckede (NI), from where it goes back to Lauenburg (SH) on the other bank of the Elbe.
All in all, a lot of dike kilometers, very wide views of the flat land, storks in every place, concrete pavement and asphalt under your shoes - modified a great bike tour, but certainly not again on foot 🚶♂️

Connoisseurs of the North Heath of course know immediately when reading the title which places are involved:
The Marxener Paradies is a grazed valley, which is forested all around and is home to a magical lake with pond roses in the valley. A gem!
The Oldendorfer Totenstatt is a collection of several large stone graves from various epochs before Christ.
The Lopausee is surrounded by a beautiful wooded landscape. There are also leisure activities beyond hiking here.
The official heath queen has been elected annually in the Kronsbergheide since 1950. There is even a fairground.
The forest between the stations can be walked through very well. All hiking trails are well signposted and easy to walk. There are numerous interesting, wild trails to try out.

The bad thing in advance: Today there is definitely no apple 🍎 to be found, because it did not fit in the "light" luggage 🧳.
For this I took up the initiative of Du-Ra-Celle initials 🅱 "to run" and that coupled with the attitude to life to dance his name 💃🩰🕺. The result was the delightful attempt to RUN my NAME 🏃♂️. For that, generations before me created the forest paths in the Buchwedel forest accordingly. They fiddled a little with the first L, but otherwise they did good forestry work. Luckily I have a short name and am not called "Leuthäusser-Schnarrenberger" or something, because you would need the whole Black Forest 😂 for that

Sometimes I walk my paths without a look 👀
Sometimes I want my e-bike back 🚴♂️
Sometimes I'm without rest and rest '🛏
Sometimes I run blisters in the shoe 🥾Sometimes I'm cold and sometimes I'm hot 🥶🥵
Sometimes I don't know what I know ❓
Sometimes I'm tired after hiking
And then I seek comfort in a song einemSometimes the smart watch seems to stand still ⌚
Sometimes you just seem to go in circles 🔄
Sometimes you're sick of wanderlust 😷
Sometimes you sit quietly on a bench 🏦Sometimes you reach for the whole world 🌍
Sometimes you think that the apple is missing 🍎
Sometimes no GPS reception you get 🧭
Sometimes you hate what you love 💘I have to walk across seven Este bridges 🌉
Survive thirty-seven kilometers 👣
I'll be over the river seven times ⤴
But once I just fall in 😂

Coming from Bahlburg, take the Luhewanderweg downstream via Winsen to the Luhe estuary at Stöckte. There is also an inhabited stork nest here. From there on the dike with a wide view over the NSG "Ilmenau-Luhe-Niederung" along Ilmenau to the old railway bridge of Tönnhausen. There are endless long paths through the meadows and fields to Borstel / Sangenstedt. The highlight is a meadow with over 20 gray herons! There through the small but very fine NSG "Birch Oak Forest", which now shines in the most beautiful green. Then continue through the forest "Habichtshorst" to the opposite Rethmoorsee. From there it is not far to the NSG "Hohes Holz" and the way back to Bahlburg follows endless forest trails.
Conclusion: almost perfect as a bike tour! Almost no traffic, best roads and always straight ahead. If I had previously looked at the asphalt road and gravel road part of the route, I would certainly not have started. Nevertheless there were a lot of nice things to see and I was able to get to know my area a little better.

This tour combines the tranquility of the Ros Rosengarten forest with the wild and romantic course of the Este, in between there are blooming rapeseed fields 💮, lush meadows and a railway embankment 🚆 for hiking.
I liked the landscape very much. However, some of the paths led along country roads, gravel roads or destroyed wall paths.
Hollenstedt-Appelbeck am See: Here it goes along a road with little traffic. Nothing exciting. The ponds ("lakes") of Appelbeck 🦆, on the other hand, are a real bird paradise. Disturbed by my early presence at 6:30 a.m., I was able to scare a lot of couples ... sorry for the disturbance of the rest. Only a swan 🦢 did not put up with it and swam in my direction with aggressively positioned wings. Then he only saw my back ... 😲
State Forest Rosengarten: The mixed forest has just been immersed in a varied, endless light green. It's nice to look at. I happened to meet the forester, who - now in pension - has been forestating this forest since 1971 (long history ... he still patrols every day). He will never see trees that he planted 50 years ago. It is a cross-generational business. Unfortunately, there is no chance of escaping the straight, endless, mostly coarse gravel, kilometer-long, wide forest trails. The forest is structured similarly to the streets of Manhattan: chess board (the forester has already ensured that no trails are created).
Former 🛤 railway embankment: wonderful flat hiking trail with mostly a wide view of the landscape. Although also straight, but with soft ground and - in contrast to dikes - with tall trees. A clear tip!
Then unfortunately a few km on the country road to Bötigheim, but it was hardly used.
Estewanderweg: an absolute dream! Some five-meter-high cliffs, a meandering river course, an interesting and up-to-date forest educational trail, soft forest floor and not even overcrowded. Beyond the main hiking trail, tempting paths (not in Komoot / OSM) that did not disappoint me. If I don't go on vacation this year, I'll spend it on the Este! A little disappointing when I stood - without official warning - in front of a blocked Este bridge. Reversing and 6 km back was out of the question. Thanks to Komoot, I had already heard about the blocked bridge and how to overcome it 😀. Then continue to the old viaduct, a relic of the golden railway era in the early 20th century.
All round a successful round.

Many thanks to RANDNOTIZ for this nice inspiration
Under the link you will also find everything worth reading about this really relaxed round. The two always document in a neutral and respectable manner. I can fully agree with that. Many thanks and ♥ to both of them!
I particularly liked the wide and varied view from the dike and the old courtyards.

The Irish are supposed to know 40 different shades of green momentan I currently only know one: fresh-beech-green
About 1/4 of the book frond consists of beech forest. I marked the best areas on the satellite map so that the interested hiker does not get lost in the coniferous forests, which are no less beautiful.

The 151 km long "Freudenthalweg" is one of the oldest long-distance hiking trails in Germany. It begins unspectacularly with a small board at the "Appelbütteler Weg" bus stop in Hamburg-Marmstorf. Along the way through the Lüneburg Heath to Verden it is marked with the striking white "F". He was named after the local writers, poets and brothers Friedrich and August Freudenthal.
The bright green of the young beech leaves was particularly striking today. Where you could look deep into the forest last week, it's only green today.

Mich erfreut was auf neuen Wegen liegt. Jedes Gehen auf unbekannten Wegen ist eine Reise ins Vertrauen.
