This route can be run in both directions with easy access to both entry points from Hamburg main station. The route follows a beautiful topological feature called "The High Moraine", which was formed during the last ice-age. About 50% of the route also follows the Elbe riverbank and most of the route is in forest on easy trails. Parts of the route traverse areas of special natural interest (and protection).
