The 1900 kilometres long pilgrim trail "VIA ROMEA", from Stade (close to Hamburg) to Rom, from Osterwieck to Wernigerode.
On small country roads through small villages of the foothills of the Harz Mountains, the tour goes steadily a little bit uphill. The highlight of the hiking tour is reached shortly before Wernigerode: the "Charlottenlust".
Very nice tour with a view of the distant "Brocken".
A small distance, in front of Berßel, we walk on a used country road.
Sturdy shoes. Clothes adapted to the weather.
Osterwieck can be reached via the A395 and the B6. The corresponding road exits lead to Osterwieck on counry roads.
