Stage description

A long stage with unfortunately very few scenic highlights and a very high proportion of asphalt. The most beautiful part of the tour is without a doubt the Otternhagener Moor, especially the way to its western edge. The wonderful view of the Lake Steinhude at the end of this last flatland stage compensates for the longe walks through villages (especially the 3 km through Bordenau, Poggenhagen and at the Wunstorf air base).
