Packed everything? Then send the backpack to yourself or your companion and set off.
Nature lovers and bird lovers will get their money's worth here! The black route of the 5-hearts-tours takes you 20 km from one nature reserve to the next.
Between the “White Venn” and the “Black Venn”, the “Letter Bruch” and the “Merfelder Bruch” you will experience a unique meadow and moor landscape on the black route. In numerous nature reserves, nature is still largely intact today.
If you want to observe rare species of birds in the wet meadows, you shouldn't forget your binoculars on this route: with a bit of luck, you might see the curlew, the heron or the plover in their natural habitat.
If you want to make a detour to the bird park of the nature and bird protection association Maria Veen, you will be rewarded with around 50 different species of parakeets and macaws.
On the further journey you will reach the Hermitage (forest chapel), which is idyllically situated in the forest. There should once have been a miraculous spring here. Today it is a visitor site for many believers. In addition to the chapel, which is freely accessible during the day, a rest area offers you the opportunity to take a break.
