The Lippe landscape also has its special charm in winter. When the Teutoburg Forest sinks into the snow, it is best experienced on skis. In 2007 the German Ski Association (DSV) certified Lippe as a nordicaktiv walking region. 19 special routes with a length of more than 140 kilometres and various degrees of difficulty invite you to go for a run. They were developed according to sports science criteria in cooperation with the Cologne Sports University and are signposted with information boards. Thus, for example, athletes receive instructions for the correct cross-country skiing technique.
In Bad Meinberg, the DSV-certified Nordic Walking route network offers a varied and very special nature experience in the Silvaticum Provincial Forest Park, the Seekurpark and the Historic Spa Park. Here Nordic Walking, the dynamic walking with 2 poles, is exactly the right sport to activate a multitude of muscles and to train the cardiovascular system in a natural way. The course offers a sense of achievement for both beginners and ambitious athletes. A very special experience is Nordic Walking in the Moorstichgelände am Stinkebrink.
Walking on springy moorland soil, you can follow the path of the moor from the ground into the tub and experience a tour of the historic pumping station. Three powerful original Borsig pumps from 1929 fascinate not only technology enthusiasts. The peace and quiet of the nature reserve is an unforgettable experience for body, mind and soul.
