Stage description

This stage leads always near the Bille and has many highlights to offer: the Sachsenwald, the high bank of the Bille in Reinbek, the Boberger Niederung.

There are signposted turnoffs to the nearby S-Bahn stations in Wohltorf, Reinbek and Bergedorf. In Bergedorf there is a side trip in both directions, here you can take a 2 km longer variant crossing Bergedorf.

Boberger Niederung with glider airfield

A popular excursion destination for many Hamburg residents is the nature reserve "Boberger Niederung". The E1 leads through a varied landscape of moor, heath, marsh and sand dunes. At the glider airfield, you can watch busy (but quiet) air traffic, especially on weekends. The Boberger See invites you to swim in summer.
