Quality hiking trails
The quality trails “Wanderbares Deutschland” are hiking trail s awarded by the German Hiking Association, for which there are Germany-wide standards. These standards are the foundation stone for an impressive hiking experience. Hikers want varied and panoramic hiking trails in natural surroundings, reliable markings, and a good view of the surrounding countryside as well as a good infrastructure at the hiking trail. The German Hiking Association has developed quality criteria for hiking trails in order to meet the wishes of hikers. These criteria make the attractiveness of a hiking trail measurable. You can find further information on the “Quality Trail” label here.
Have fun hiking!
The circular trail is easy to walk on and offers wonderful views in all directions. With a refreshing break at the water treading pool you can be back at the starting point after about 2 1/2 hours. The trail leads past the old vicarage. Here are two wonderful natural monuments, the parish bark and an old ash tree. An old village fountain with sandstone border reminds of the time without central water supply in Oerlinghausen. In the course of the hike there is always a wonderful view in south direction to the Paderborn and Sauerland regions. You hike through the beautiful mixed forest past the water treading pool, where the Sachsenquelle springs on the southern slope of the Tönsberg. The spring is part of the ground monument “Wallburg Tönsberg”. In the further course you reach below the Hünenkapelle a vantage point with spectacular panoramic views. Also the further course to the north offers again and again wonderful views and insights!
