Hiking in Stormarn
Hiking is one of the most popular outdoor activities in Germany. Walking is good for you: it strengthens the heart, gets the circulation going and builds up your muscles. Hikers will be thrilled with Stormarn. Many short and long trails invite you to get some real exercise. There is a wide choice of looped walks and even multi-day tours including overnight stays. Put on your walking boots and get walking - along meadows, fields, lakes and rivers!
Hahnheide – A short loop
This short loop is only approx. 4 kilometers long. However, a little detour to the viewing tower "Langer Otto" is highly recommended. The climb up to the viewing platform will be rewarded. From the platform you have a wonderful view over the Hahnheide and in good weather you can even see the city of Hamburg in the distance. The well-maintained paths in the Hahnheide are ideal for short and long hiking tours.
Start and end point of this looped tour is the forest car park in Hamflede (Hasenberg).
