The past attacks the hiker at every turn. Historical ground on which he walks. The woods seem to echo with the clang of weapons and the chatter of the soldiers of marching troops, mixed with the roar of the draught animals that had to pull the heavy wagons of the farmers and traders through the ravines. Many a funny musician may have wandered here to offer his services at Falkenburg or Horn Castle. Since time immemorial people have crossed the Teutoburg Forest, refreshed themselves at the springs and marvelled at the vast expanse of land that spread out at their feet. Times of peace, times of battles, of victory and defeat, of wealth and poverty. All this is linked by this trail, which represents the history of Lippe, even Europe, like no other. At the end of the trail, the walker will find a hospitable place to stay.
