Letzter Heller: Hiking and feasting

In 26 days

Short facts

In cooperation with hiking guide Catharina Schütze (www.zeitzuwandern.de) and the Gasthaus Letzter Heller we are offering you a very special hiking tour on 01 July.

"Der letzte Heller" - Many people around Hann. Münden have certainly seen this inn lying by the side of the road on the main road. But do you also know where it got its name? In the course of our hike today, we will get to the bottom of this question.

We start at the car park directly opposite the inn. From there we walk through the idyllic Ilksbachtal valley to Lippoldshausen. The sight of the beautiful waterfall quickly makes you forget the constant climb. Along fields, meadows and through the village of Wiershausen we approach the highest point (277m) of today's route. On the way we are rewarded again and again with a wide view over the landscape. After about 9 kilometres we return to our starting point.

Following our hike, a delicious barbecue buffet awaits us in the inner courtyard of the "Letzter Heller" inn with delicacies from the smoker and ofyr grill.
