Nordic flair meets Westphalia's largest megalithic to mb - these and other highlights await you on the Teutoschleife Sloopsteener Seerunde near Westerkappeln. Put on your hiking boots and off you go. Immediately after the start at the car park on Sloopsteinweg, the cultural eponym of this hiking trail comes to the fore: the Sloopsteene. Those who lived here 4,000 years ago probably found their final resting place under the mighty boulders.
The trail continues through beautiful forest passages, past venerable beech and oak trees and along idyllic lakeside paths around the glittering blue Niedrighaussee. Finally, you land on a real sandy beach that invites you to linger and dream. Sand between your toes, a spicy scent of pine trees in your nose - as if you were in Scandinavia.
Gently, the Sloopsteener Seerunde leads you back into the local forest, which at times provides a majestic hall character for high spirits. The 6.7-kilometre route ends between the edge of the forest and meadows with beautiful views.
