LandStreifer+ “Across Botany”

26.4 km6: 45 hschwer

Picturesque waterways, idyllic river landscapes, fragrant forests and historical architecture await hikers.

Going on a really big tour? You can do this on our LandStreifer Plus between Olfen and Datteln in fabulous nature. Sometimes it goes to the Stever, sometimes over the Lippe, sometimes along the Wesel-Datteln Canal. Sometimes you walk on forest paths, sometimes on field paths and sometimes through the Shire. You will encounter animal landscapers and rare animal and plant species; historical architecture and building botany await you in picturesque surroundings. There is also a lot of forest, water reflections and space for relaxation. The path shows you a good stretch of the Hohe Mark Steig, takes you to the water route and connects you with a LandStreifer.

From wild to magically romantic, Stever can be anything. It meanders through meadows and fields. On its banks lie floodplains, beaches, forests and fields. Lots of wonderful spots and lots of beautiful ones
Vicinity. A landscape that is increasingly transforming into a pristine floodplain landscape.
