From the spring of the Weser in Hannoversch Munden, until his breakthrough in the North German Plain, you follow the river through the Weserbergland. The trail leads north through forests, meadows, fields and colorful half-timbered towns. It crosses the legendary Reinhardswald the caslte Sababurg of the Sleeping Beauty. Further through the high moor Mecklenbruch in wooded Hochsolling and the Vogler. Fairy tales and legends are ubiquitous in the Weserbergland. You will meet historical figures, such as the doctor iron beard in Hannoversch Munden, the lies Baron von Munchhausen in Bodenwerder and the Pied Piper of Hamelin. After Hohenstein in Süntel leads the way through the Weser Mountains, past the Schaumburg overlooking Rinteln. And after more than 200 adventurous kilometers by foot on the Wittekindsberg in Wiehengebirge the silhouette of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial at the Porta Westfalica appears.
