Stage description

This stage is poor in highlights, but at the same time has no unpleasant passages. The route leads almost exclusively in slight ups and downs over forest paths. Remarkable is the high density of shelters, which can be found on this section in 2 to 3 kilometre intervals. Sometimes there are beautiful views like at the Knochenhütte and especially at the "Schöne Aussicht" refuge above Bad Driburg. While the marking is very good most of the time, some decisive signs are missing in the Herbram forest area. So you have to be very attentive not to miss the branch near the Alte Ziegelei. Highlights on this stage include the ruins of Iburg Castle about 500 metres away from the E1 and an impressive collapse funnel near the Klusenberg Hut.
