It goes through the open landscape with an unobstructed view to the horizon.

You can enjoy the silence around you and listen to nature on forest paths, past meadows and fields.

And this is where the panorama changes: Beautiful vantage points have a magical view of the lake ready for you. Be enchanted by the cloud reflections, the animal inhabitants and the atmosphere. A special highlight is certainly the Crossing the reservoir - about in the middle. Fantastic! And definitely a reason to get out the camera.

Then the climb will guide you Stever along, which meanders elegantly through the landscape and impresses with enchanting landscapes. Until you on the Haltern reservoir meets and has the next highlight on your hike ready.

Get very close to the Haltern reservoir and a little further away you hike around the lake. Always tempted to take a break on one of the benches. Why not? Enjoy the water route and the wonderful panorama.

And you continue on your hike around the lake to the Marina on the beach avenue. Here reigns harbor flair pure. Watching boats, that's something really wonderful. Or?
