Explore the region with the eyes of an archaeologist or a cultural historian? This functions on the many Eco-trails around Kassel. There are 20 in total, which are within a radius of 50 kilometers.
16 of these Eco-trails have existed for some time, while four were recently opened. The trails lead hikers to places of significant archaeological, culturally and historical interest.
It is not necessary to engage on a thirty-mile hike. The routes are designed to be not too long and with attractive possibilities to stop on the way. The Eco-trails are completely marked making it easy to explore then. In addition, the illustrative information charts at key points describe how our region has developed historically and what traces can be found today.
Special flyers with the exact distances of the Eco-trails and all the important information can be easily downloaded from www. eco-pfade.de There are also audio-guides of the Eco-trails Dörnberg, Hellmarshausen and Pilgerweg Gottsbüren. You can also download them and take them via MP3 player, for example, on the trail with you. (Judith Strecker)
