Starting point is the “Domplatz“(Cathedral square) in Braunschweig. We turn south and take the "Müntzstraße", turn right at the crossroads and then turn left again into "Leopoldstraße". "Am Bruchtorwall" a little bit to the left and then again to the right into "Nimesstraße”. At the “Bürgerpark” a few metres to the south, then go right over the bridge. After crossing the river “Oker”, turn left to the south.
After we have reached the "Werkstättenweg", we follow this road and follow the "Eisenbüttlerstraße". We cross a railway line and stay on the western side of the “Oker”, always along the shore. We cross the federal highway A 39 and then turn left after a right turn. We follow the road between the "Südsee" and the” Oker”. At "Rüninger Weg", take a few steps to the right and then immediately left again on the foot / bike path, before the railway crossing. After a few metres, we see a weir to the left, which we cross. Afterwards, we continue south to the right.
We follow the "Wilhelm-Bornstedt-Weg" and arrive in Stöckheim. Past the church, we stay on the way, until we meet a road. Follow the "Leiferder Straße" to the left and then turn right at a T-junction into the dirt road. In the further, we cross the federal highway A 395 and then go along the forest to Wolfenbüttel, always following the "Alter Weg" to the city centre. At the crossroads with the "Neue Weg", we go to the right. Cross the junction and a roundabout straight ahead.
At the entrance to the old town, we turn right into "Lange Herzogstraße". We reach the "Stadtmarkt" via the "Kanzerstraße".
Braunschweig is located directly on the Bundesautobahn A2 and is therefore very well connected to the German transport network. Several bus routes lead through Braunschweig.
