Course of the circular route

The long tour of the circular route W8 has a length of 14.5km and picks up on the main points of the short and medium tours, but leads significantly further south.

It takes you through the forest and past two ponds to the railway line Hanover - Hamburg. Here, you continue left through Rungeloh forest and a small valley to Tielemann’s Oak, which is protected as a natural monument.

The path continues north and reaches the course of the power line at a crossroads. Following this trail, you will return to the trail parking lot, passing through areas that are partly overgrown with heather.

The long tour is depicted by a large heather-coloured circle in addition to the pictogram shown here.
