at Lake Steinhuder Meer

As Far As Your Feet Take You...

Nature is most intensely experienced on foot. Leave everything hectic and regulated behind. The journey is the goal as you peacefully delve into the different landscapes. Especially good for hikers is the infrastructure of the 32-kilometer long path encircling the lake, a stretch leading the hiker through the nature protection zone, where everything off the trail must remain undisturbed. The nature park regularly offers guided hikes through the moors, that allow hikers a supervised access to these protected areas. Three loop paths run through Steinhude and in Mardorf there are eight themed paths waiting to be discovered.
