A most recommendable 124-Spider-drive crossing all the
way through the Weserbergland, wellknown from the imaginative legend of the Pied Piper and his musical rats of Hameln and
from The Surprising Adventures of Baron Munchhausen from the city of Bodenwerder, who had the astounding abilities to ride cannonballs and travel to the moon.
A region worthwhile discovering in an open convertible, located in a grand and PANORAMIC HILLY COUNTRY AREA
with magnificent wide views. Moreover attractive, because it is within reach
from the Dutch border: from Hengelo it is 'only' a two hours drive (214 km), located in the triangle Bielefeld, Kassel, Hannover.
The unique route ( initially set up in 2001 by my local German friends Beate and Siegfried Werner ) meanders along the places: POLLE
, Hummersen, Köterberg, Rischenau, Falkenhagen, Wörderfeld, Vahlbruch, Glesse,
Neersen, Eichenborn, Lichtenhagen, Ottenstein, Brevörde, Pegestorf, along the banks of the Weser river
to Bodenwerder ( a wonderful old town inviting to walk around a few hours and relax on one of the pleasant terraces in the city center ), Rühle, Lütgenade, Reileifzen,
direction Bevern and from there WITH A SMALL FERRY
across the Weser, close to the hotel in Polle. Total tour distance: little more than 100 kilometres. A definite must!
