On the Hanseatenweg from Reinfeld to Lübeck.
Today again a route hike from station to station. Started at Reinfeld station. The classic station building is abandoned and is deteriorating. We cross the rails and walk through older residential areas out of Reinfeld and follow the Jakobsweg or Hanseatenweg to Groß Wesenberg in Stubbendorf. Shortly before Groß Wesenberg will cross under the A1 on which cars are stowed northwards. Shortly before Klein Wesenberg we cross the Trave and hike to the church of Klein Wesenberg, which is perched on a hill above the Travetal. We continue on the Way of St. James, where a pilgrim actually comes towards us, (too) heavily loaded. Shortly after Klein Wesenberg we leave the Stormarn district and reach the Lübeck area. Behind Reecke we come back to a forest area on a slope on the Travetal. The area called the Christinental was part of the large Gut Niendorf. However, we still don't see the Trave. We only come back to the Trave shortly before Moisling. We continue walking until we come to the Elbe-Lübeck Canal in Moisling, which we follow left towards the center. A short time later we cross the Trave, which flows into the Elbe-Lübeck Canal. We continue to follow the Elbe-Lübeck Canal along an extensive allotment garden area to the Lachswehr, where we cross the Lübeck Stadtgraben via a road bridge (Lachswehrbrücke) and reach a rampart that is bordered by the Stadtgraben, Elbe-Lübeck Canal and Trave. At the end we cross the Possehlstrasse and reach the Malerwinkel park with the best view of the city island of Lübeck with the famous old town and the view of the Marienkirche. Via the Dankwartsbrücke we reach the old town, where we can treat ourselves to a little refreshment on the banks of the Trave before we head over the Holstenstor to the Lübeck train station, where we board the train (drive every hour) and 9 (!) Minutes later in Reinfeld get out.Conclusion: A rather boring hike at the beginning (apart from Klein Wesenberg) and only becomes more interesting from Christinental. In fact, the hike follows the course of the Trave, which we unfortunately rarely see. There are two long-distance hiking trails that run from Reinfeld to Lübeck, the Jakobsweg via Baltica and the Hanseatenweg, which are very identical in their course.

After an overnight stay in the Panoramahotel Aschberg (former Globetrotter Lodge) and an extensive breakfast, you should head back through the Hüttener mountains to Eckernförde. However, Peter doesn't mean very well with us. The rain is our constant companion. Wrapped up in rain, we hike on the well-marked nature park path towards Fleckeby. In fact, the landscape can hardly be distinguished from a low mountain landscape, especially in such cloudy weather, so impressive. We follow the nature park path past the Lehnsberg (101 m), today an air monitoring station of the Bundeswehr. The path follows partly unoccupied tar roads, but also densely overgrown dirt roads. At Fellhorst the path goes “steeply” down into a deep valley, where the Kleine Hüttener Au rises in a small forest. We continue on the nature park path to Fleckeby, where we fortify ourselves with delicious cakes at Bäcker Detlefsen. Here we wait for a heavy rain shower under a small shelter. We continue through the NATURA 2000 area of Schlei, over the Große Hüttener Au until we come to the bank of the Great Width of the Schlei. If the weather was nice we would have taken a bath break here (official bathing spot). Through extensive pastures, we continue to Weseby (where we once again wait for a shower in a waiting house). The Nibble of Weseby had closed. From Weseby we then continue on the Jakobsweg via Scandinavica to Kosel, with a beautiful old church and the recommendable Koseler Landgasthof (unfortunately it wasn't open yet). In Kosel we follow the pilgrimage route to the right when the rain gets heavier and reach the Bültsee nature reserve, where we hike across extensive pastures. Arrived at the B 76, we follow this to the right for a few hundred meters and then turn left into the Kreisstraße 57, which we follow for about 650 m, before we turn right into the street to Kochendorf. Once in Kochendorf we wait for a heavy rain shower in a waiting house and eat the rest of the cake. We continue along the pilgrimage route on a very beautiful section to the Windebyer Noor. Following the banks of the Noor, we then reach tired and drenched our end point Eckernförde.Conclusion: A beautiful and very varied tour with the character of a low mountain range and a Baltic Sea feeling even when it rains.

Long planned, now implemented. From Eckernförde up to the Aschberg. Started in Eckernförde along the beach promenade to Gut Altenhof. We have to walk a short distance along the road towards Holtsee, but shortly after the Alte Meierei or the pheasantry we turn right into the Hofholz wood. The paths here are not clear, so be careful. After approx. 2.5 km we leave the forest and walk through a large wind farm to the Harzhof settlement. From there left on the road towards Holtsee. After approx. 1.5 km we turn right into the Rendsburg State Forest with the highest elevation "Harzhof" at 58 m. After about 1 km we leave the forest again, turn right into a dirt road, which we follow only a short distance and then turn left. Attention after approx. 900 m it goes left on a nicely mowed path towards Haby. In Haby, a Rundlingsdorf we make a small round (nomen est omen). From Haby it goes towards Wittensee, where we can take our second rest. In Groß Wittensee we take a look at the Auguste mill. We continue on Kirchhorster Weg, which we leave shortly behind a riding stable on the left. At Kirchhorst we come across the long-distance hiking trail E1 which we can then follow up to the Aschberg.
