„Laufen ist eines der ersten Dinge, die ein Kind tun möchte und eines der Dinge, die man am schwersten aufgeben will. Laufen ist eine Bewegung, die keine Turnhalle braucht. Es ist ein medizinisches Rezept ohne Medikament [...].“ (aus „The Magic Of Walking“ von Aaron Sussman und Ruth Goode, 1967)
We start our sightseeing tour at Mandraki harbor and stroll along the water to Elli Beach and the northernmost point of Rhodes. The Turkish southwest coast seems to be within reach from here.Our next destination is Monte Smith Hill with the remains of an ancient acropolis.Finally, it goes down to the city that dates back to 408 BC. BC was founded on the occasion of the merger of three cities as a common capital and built as a planned city.The entire old town, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988, is surrounded by a four-kilometer fortress wall.The wall of the impressive fortress of the Order of St. John from the 14th century was divided into eight defensive sections and assigned to groups of knights of different "tongues" (Provence, Auvergne, France, Italy, Aragon, Castile, England and Germany).

On the circular hike we discover many small beaches - we particularly like Oasis Beach.A visit to the thermal baths of Kallithea, which have been known since the time of the Roman emperor Augustus, is an absolute highlight. The beautiful thermal baths and park can be visited for an entry price of 3 euros per person. Even if the six springs have now fallen dry, it is worth visiting the rotunda and the park with the elaborately designed mosaics of white and black pebbles.The further way leads us to Koskinou. After a stop at the small restaurant Kotsakis, we are strengthened for the way back to Ammoudes.

Today's hike takes us in wonderful autumn weather over the processional path to the Pleistermühle. Opposite the very idyllic country inn on the Werse there is currently a corn maze. The labyrinth is operated by the country inn in cooperation with the Schmermann farm. A great idea for the whole family that, in addition to exercising in the fresh air, also stimulates the senses.Our path leads us along the Werse, where we enjoy the beautiful reflections in the water.At the Nobis Krug café and restaurant, we cross Warendorfer Straße and turn directly back onto the footpath along the Werse.
