      When the weather is good, a trip to Homberg with its far-reaching views is always worthwhile. As with us, the starting point can be the beautiful spa gardens of Reinhardshausen with its many highlights that are well worth seeing. At its transition to the Bad Wildunger Kurpark - the Reinhardshöhe - there are several options for ascent to choose from. We decided on one of the shorter, but somewhat challenging, variants that you should walk with sturdy hiking boots if possible. Especially the last stretch up to the Bismarckhöhe, quasi the "pre-summit", has a really steep ascent on not always firm ground. Once at the top, you like to take a breather on the bench near the mountain guard hut and enjoy the view into the distance through a narrow gap in the tree population in front of it. The transition to the actual, 518 meter high summit through a small depression is a piece of cake compared to the previous ascent. The observation tower that you now reach is open all year round, but only offers space for a handful of people at the top of the platform. But you have to climb it to get a clear view of the surrounding area. And that is truly grandiose, especially when, as in our case, suddenly the sky opens and the landscape is bathed in bright sunlight. We could see all the way to Knüll and Waldeck Castle was clearly visible in the clear air. Unfortunately, the view to the southwest is blocked by the treetops reaching just below the height of the tower, otherwise the view from here would be perfect.
      The descent on forest roads in wide loops around the mountain is comparatively easy. In order not to let boredom arise, we chose a small path at the foot of the mountain near the edge of the mountain forest for the last kilometer to Reitzenhagen. This path also offered us a climb over a huge rotten beech tree that had fallen over the path.
      For the way back to Reinhardshausen, we choose the hiking trail along the Wilde, which meanders romantically through the valley. If it weren't for the road that runs parallel to the stream and the path, sometimes closer, sometimes further, it would be really cozy here.

      Long, slow runs pave the way for faster, short runs 😉 With this in mind, I wish everyone a good start to the weekend 👋 🙋🏻‍♀️

      A nice run along the Weissenhäuser Brök nature reserve to the cliff and back around a private property towards the beach. Despite the wind and the soft ground, the route was easy to run. Asphalt, forest floor, loose sand, well-trodden dirt roads, cobblestones, everything was there and offered a good change for the feet. In addition, the beautiful landscape 😍 ... 👋

      The area around Hamborn Castle, the Haxter Grund and the Paderborn forest area really offer a wide range of options for putting together smaller and larger hiking tours. This time it should be about 15km and we had firmly planned to finally stop at the Kapellenhof.
      Before that, however, we first took a few meters of altitude on forest and field paths under the hiking soles, paid a visit to the Blue Madonna, Saint Anna and Hilligen Seele and enjoyed the colorful foliage of the trees on all the paths.
      We needed a bit of skill at about kilometer 9 of our tour, where the pilgrimage route was pushed up by a bulldozer to a forest highway for about 100m and plenty of rock was piled up to "bridge" a depression. If hikers from the direction of the Kluskapelle - that is, go up the pilgrim path opposite our hike, they will stand in front of a 6m high wall of loose scree and only come back on the path with rather uncomfortable detours across the undergrowth - or just have to climb.
      Our break highlight was the Kapellenhof. The super delicious cake baked by the boss herself is highly recommended. And while you're already there, you should take some time to stroll in the blooming cottage garden.

      Inspired by Hubert's recent hike in the Ringelsteiner Wald with a visit to the castle, we used the beautiful autumn weather for a short tour in the same area after our work was done. First we inspected the progress of the restoration of the castle ruins, which a few years ago still lay quite neglected on the mountain spur. Meanwhile, the walls and the area are very attractive and really worth exploring.
      For our hike we chose the well-signposted circular hiking trail H4. Unfortunately, as in many places in Westphalia, the (spruce) forest is mostly in large piles at the edge of the road, but here in the area there are still intact spruce stands on the higher elevations of the Ringesteiner forest. The partly wide views towards the Almetal up to the Sintfeld are little consolation for the deforestation.
      A little surprise at the H4 is that at the beginning of the last third of the circular route, it goes uphill for a few hundred meters until you get back down from the drinking water source into the valley back to the starting point at the Ringelstein train station.

      After Jesswell got hooked on me in the late summer of 2020, we had to wait a long time to take part in such an event together due to cancellations and postponements. It was a first for me and after experiencing the atmosphere and great organization, it won't be the last long-distance hike that I will take part in.
      Under corona conditions, things were certainly a bit different than usual, but still it was a fantastic experience to go out on the track with a total of almost 1200 participants. Started divided in different start windows
      every 15 minutes about 200 hikers and in the end 968 actually crossed the finish line with 50km in their legs.
      The route west of Hanover itself was very flat and offered very nice views as soon as you got out of the Laatzen district. Be it relatively close to Hanover in the area of the river Leine and the Maschsee, or outside in Weezen and Ronnenberg. However, it has to be said that there were kilometers of bike paths along roads with moderate traffic, which was sometimes not so pleasant. Here the organizer has to fine-tune the route for the next time. The distribution of the four refreshment stations along the route was also a bit questionable. The first came after 8km, the second only at about 23km, the third again at kilometer 30. There was also something warm to eat, but we were still full because we were doing really well on VP2 let go - and we were definitely not the only ones ...
      The 8 hours and 19 minutes of pure walking time also belies the overall result of 10 hours and 12 minutes. We took a long break at the refreshment points and gave it a little gas on the route - not least thanks to a third comrade who joined us from kilometer 6 and pulled us along quite well.
      Shortly before we reached our destination, we tapped a little hook to compensate for the missing 200 meters in the recording due to small GPS incorrect measurements - we absolutely wanted to have the 50km on the clock 😄

      This time we again chose Schwalenberg as the starting point for a short test hike. "Free snout" and almost on the way we planned a 25km long loop from Schwalenberg Castle into the Niesetal to Marienmünster Abbey and back again. A detour to the Magdalenenquelle should also be possible on the way back shortly before the destination.
      Despite rather random planning, our tour largely followed the Niesetal Waderweg.
      Due to the warm weather and especially the sun, the route to Marienmünster had its lengths for us despite several great views ... Note: When planning, look carefully at the map, where some woods could be promising shade on the way. But even these can sometimes turn out to be clear cuts in reality, as we have experienced.
      Overall, we can recommend the Niesetalweg, just not in midsummer weather.
      A little tip on the side: For a break about halfway, the idyllic Ketser Dyk pond about 100m northeast of the abbey is recommended.
