Stage description

NB: The route described below refers to the old path (up until 2017). The current path no longer takes you through the Westermoor.

This is a lovely stage along enchanting trails. Leaving Schleswig, cross the bridge, follow the south bank of the Schlei for a while before heading south towards Selk. When you get to the Selker Mühle (the old mill in Selk) keep left and follow the signs to the fish pond. The path until Lottorf is identical to the Pilgerweg (pilgrims' way). Don't take a right and follow the signs with the mussels, but go left towards Brekendorf and then turn right. Always stay on this path (there are few marking in this section) until a path turns off to the left. Here you should be able to see a covered bench with a sign for the E1 path. This path leads us along an overgrown trail through Westermoor. Keep going! In the middle of the marsh there a a bush and signpost. From here, the trail is well marked again. At just short of 20km, the stage is not too long and can be managed quite easily.
