A number of highlights can be encountered along the route: the town Fürstenberg with a renowned porcelain manufacture, the old hanseatic town Höxter with more than 160 mostly half timbered buildings under monuments-protection.The little town Beverungen retained a lot of its historical face.

Day 6: Minden – Nienburg approx. 63 km

After the days spent in the low mountain ranges today the idyllic, protected river meadows of the middle Weser dominate. You enjoy a far view over the flat countryside with meadows, black and white cows, a farm here and there and numerous wind mills.
