The “Historical hiking trail” in Lage-Hörste has made it its business to make the historical history of Hörste accessible to the interested layman. This is done using the example of the Hörste farms.
Starting from the old parish Stapelage, this path leads you through two striking gorges of the Teutoburger Wald, past the scenic edge of the unique alpine meadow landscape and the waters of the Rethlager springs. On the legendary Hermannsweg it goes back to the starting point.
Through the Dörenschlucht, a natural pass through the crossbar of the Teutoburger Wald towards Detmold, you hike to the Rethlager springs. From here you can quickly reach the ridge of the Teutoburger Wald with the Hermannsweg and hike through dense forest back to Stapelage.
