The Ith-Hils-Weg (Ith-Hils Trail) is characterised by its bizarre rock formations, mysterious sacred sites, myths and legends, as well as its ridgeways offering stunning views. As its name suggests, the trail, which is located in the eastern Weser Uplands, connects two lesser-known but truly attractive ranges of hills: the Ith and the Hils. The region is not only popular among climbers, but also a top insiders’ tip for hikers.
The route taken by the 80-kilometre-long Qualitätsweg Wanderbares Deutschland (Quality Trail in Germany for Hikers) stays particularly close to nature and leads hikers past true highlights such as the Water Tree in Ockensen, impressive viewing towers, distinctive rock formations such as “Adam and Eve” or the “Devil’s Kitchen” and mysterious caves. This is a region simply bursting with exciting tales to discover!
Our tip: The route can be divided up into up to seven pleasant daily stages, all of which start at hiking car parks with large information boards. The trail can also be combined with other day hikes.
