Stage description

Shortly after Bad Münder, the ascent begins to the Hohe Egge (440m), the highest peak of the Süntel, a low mountain range between Deister and Weser. On the way up we pass the Bergschmiede guest house and join the European long-distance hiking trail E11 at Sünteltum on the summit. For a small fee, you can climb to the top of the Sünteltum. A restaurant offers simple food and drinks. E1 and E11 now follow the same path for a couple kilometres. Old boundary stones line the path and at the Dreiländereck (the border triangle) a sign provides some information about the historical border lines. On the partly very steep way down to the village of Unsen, deep hollows in the forest testify to an old quarry where Süntel sandstone was mined. After crossing the Schweinberg (280m), the two European long-distance hiking trails then separate at Heisenküche guest house. While the E11 continues its way directly towards Hameln's old town, the E1 first reaches the Hameln railway station after a few kilometres and then continues into the historic old town of the Pied Piper town and the Weser.
