This extended tour over 24 kilometers offers you a unique and varied natural backdrop full of churches worth seeing and a lot of loopy idyll.

The starting point in Kahleby is ideal for this.From the St. Marien church to Kahleby you walk north along the beautiful Füsinger Au and on the railway embankment of the former circular railway. If you feel like it, you can then go down the Füsinger Au with a canoe and let yourself be carried away by the current. The canoe rental Feldmann has boats in the east of Goltoft for you. After a small piece of forest you cross the Au and return at Scholderup across the fields to Kahleby.The southern route brings you to the loop.

This short hike is more like a longer walk, but it is still extremely natural and offers you many suggestions for relaxing and breathing deeply. However, the only challenge can be to find a parking space at the starting point in Steinberg, which is not that easy.In the best case, you should shoulder your picnic backpack and then it's called "Eyes on the road". This is to be taken literally here, since the first one and a half kilometers of the tour run on a small asphalt road between fields. Here you can comfortably watch the farmers at work or call the residents a friendly “moin” before you get on the more natural part of the tour. From the street you can go straight ahead onto a small path in the green and take a first rest after a few steps.It continues freshly strengthened. Here you run wonderfully soft on grass between kinks, fields, meadows and a small forest, which you then enter. Along a small stream and past a duck pool, it goes through the eponymous village Stürsholz, where you can briefly settle down on a bench again. Take a short turn and you will see cute thatched cottages with rose bushes and great green gardens.The grass hiking path now leads you particularly idyllically between paddocks with typical north German black and white cows and again very varied through woods and curtsies. Again, several benches are set up so that you can choose a picnic area. However, the walk through the grassy ground can also be a little strenuous, so that the two kilometers can seem longer to you and the end of the hiking trail on a small information board about the "Stürsholz landscape path" may even be quite appropriate.There is also a bench with plenty of space and a view of the wide paddocks with many cows and their cute calves. The best place for a picnic! When the last piece of food has been consumed, the road continues. Along a few holiday homes, you walk about one and a half kilometers back to the starting point.

On this tour you embark on a journey into the age of nobles and dukes around Schleswig's zoo. Because game was once kept and partially hunted here in the past, the forest area got its name “Tiergarten”.Your journey into the past begins royally at the parking lot at Schloss Gottorf. If you like, you can precede your hike with a visit to the magnificent castle with its richly decorated inventory. The baroque garden with its well-tended hedges and playful fountains is no less majestic. From here you walk further through the shady forest area and into the wild and romantic Wickeltal.A short side path takes you to the grave of Duke Abel, who once fought for the Danish throne against his brother. After his death there was little more than an inconspicuous granite stone with an inscription. But he is said to still haunt the Schleswig cathedral church.You can decide how you want to draw your bows through the beautiful zoo, as each path has its own charm.
