This circular route first passes through the valley of the winding Benfe river, before continuing through woods, meadows and valleys. Small hamlets and farms are dotted along the way, and every so often, there’s a broad view out over green hills.

Author’s recommendation

The route offers many attractive places to stop for a picnic, so make sure you take food and drink with you!

It’s worth paying a visit to the Erndtebrück local history museum and to “Balds historische Fahrzeugschau”, an exhibition of old motor vehicles.
