The 1900 kilometres long pilgrim trail "VIA ROMEA", from Stade (close to Hamburg) to Rom, from Hornburg to Osterwieck.
From Hornburg in Lower Saxony, our journey leads us over the former German domestic border to Osterwieck in Saxony-Anhalt. Along the elevation of the "Kleiner Fallstein", there are many wonderful views of the Harz with its foothills.
Very nice tour with historical insights at the "border crossing" of the former domestic German border.
