Hiking in Bursfelde

Bursfelde - Hiking, Pilgrimage, Experience History

As small as the village of Bursfelde is with just 40 inhabitants, the abbey of the former Benedictine monastery Bursfelde, founded in 1093, is very important for the region. Hikers exploring the Nieme Valley from Bursfelde should not miss a visit to the church. The monastery church is open to visitors all year round from 8 am to 6 pm.

Hiking on the Blümer Berg

Experience history up close

The Blümer Berg is something like Hann. Münden's green lung. The Blümer Berg, which is mainly characterised by beech trees, but also by spruce, oak and larch in places, has always belonged to Münden's city forest. It is above all the proximity to the Münden city area that makes Blümer Berg so attractive as a hiking area for locals and tourists.

Hiking in the Bramwald

Fairytale Hiking in the Bramwald

In the Bramwald, in the north-west of the Münden Nature Park, the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm come to life. Not only do we find many legends and fairytales here, we also find everything a fairytale landscape needs: Closed beech forests, meadows, pastures, small streams and idyllic villages, such as Hemeln and Bühren.

Hiking in Lippoldshausen

Experience with all senses

Forests rich in orchids, neat half-timbered houses on sandstone foundations, the old fortified church with its murals dating from 1444 and two country inns in the middle of the village centre that are famous far beyond the region - Lippoldshausen is worth a visit for many reasons!

Hiking in Laubach

Hiking between the Werra Valley and Kaufunger Forest

Welcome to the Kaufunger Forest! Laubach is one of the smaller villages in the region: just under 400 inhabitants live in the hamlet, which nestles in the hillside between the Kaufung Forest and the Werra.

The Hohe Hagen, a volcanic mountain formed 14 million years ago and one of the highest elevations in the region at just under 500 metres, is an ideal starting point and destination for numerous hikes.

Pure nature!

Panorama trail in Hann. Münden's forests

The location on the Weser, Werra and Fulda rivers and surrounded by three forests invite you to explore. The Paetzold family from Hann. Münden told us their secret tip for a circular hike that connects all the rivers and forests.

Hiking in Adelebsen

Hiking in volcanic landscapes

The village of Adelebsen lies on the northern edge of the Münden Nature Park, nestled in former volcanic mountains.

Hiking between the Werratal and Kaufunger Forest! The route of the "Vulkanweg" leads you from the cemetery in Löwenhagen along the panorama path around the Backenberg and gives you views of walls of blue asalt and the picturesque mountain lake where you can linger.

Here, connoisseurs reveal their insider tips

"One of the seven most beautifully situated towns in the world" is how the well-travelled Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) is said to have enthused about Hann. Münden. The half-timbered town lies idyllically surrounded by the three mountain ranges of Bramwald, Kaufunger Wald and Reinhardswald on the three rivers Fulda, Werra and Weser. Here we present the three best insider tips in and around Hann. Münden in loose order. Do you also know a beautiful place in Hann. Münden or the region? No matter whether it's an idyllic spot, a fascinating view or a curious place, we would be delighted if you told us about your insider tip.

Place with a distant view "My most beautiful place in the grounds of the Sichelnstein water-treading facility."


Here you can relax and enjoy Kneipp treatments, do something for your health, watch the fish in the beautifully designed ornamental fish pond and experience the whole variety of flowers, especially in spring. On top of all this comes the distant view. In the west, you can see as far as Kassel to the Hercules and in the east to the wooded hills of the Kaufunger Forest."

The course of the Nieme "My most beautiful place in the Münden Nature Park is on the hiking trail from Löwenhagen to Bursfelde."


This path follows the course of the Nieme. Nature can be experienced by those seeking recreation. Kingfisher, dipper, grey wagtail, black stork and others have their territory here. The multi-award-winning film "Experience Nature in the Nieme Valley", which I produced there, shows the special features of this beautiful spot."

Pilgrims' Chapel St. Bernhard "My most beautiful place is about two hundred metres below the landmark of Dransfeld, the Gaußturm."


There you will find the pilgrims' chapel "St. Bernhard" on the pilgrims' path from Loccum to Volkenroda with a wonderful view over Jühnde to the Brocken, the Inselsberg and the Hohe Meißner.
