Following Three Former Railway Lines

Scenic landscapes along the railway lines

The well-kept trails lead you by dense woods, extensive lakes and designated nature conservation sites. Information boards at the wayside provide travellers with insights into the history of these former railway tracks.

On your way to Trittau, you can take a little detour to the village of Grönwohld with its historic Drahtmühle building dating back to the early 17th century.
