Der Goldene Pfad brings you back to the ground of nature. Here, "Doctor Nature" is at work as you hike, experience and internalize the ten stations of the Goldener Pfad.

This circular hiking trail leads about five kilometers across the Niedersfelder Hochheide, which lies at the foot of the Langenberg.

The encounter with nature often has the effect of a journey into one's own self. The prerequisite for this is to engage with the landscape with time and mindfulness. In order to facilitate this focus on yourself and nature, the stations are designed in such a way that they, the landscape and nature are destroyed as little as possible.

Each station has its own theme of experience, which is introduced by the name of the station. Different, representational and verbal stimuli encourage an interactive relationship with the landscape.

The Landschaftstherapeutischer Pfad was opened in June 2015 and has since inspired many landscape enjoyers and hikers.



You start at the tuning place . Here you leave your everyday life behind. Ten stations invite you to take your time and discover the magic of simple worlds of experience.Der Goldene Pfad was created according to Landschaftstherapeutischer criteria and promotes psycho-physical health. Feel the atmosphere of the place and tune into the path.From the attunement place, the first station follows after a few steps. The "landscape balcony" offers a view of the Hoher Hagen, the Bastenberg and the Sternrodt.A few hundred meters further at the second station "Seeing Heid, Understanding Heid", you find yourself in the middle of the Hochheide and see juniper bushes, blueberries, pines, individual heather plants, a carpet of heather, grasses and mosses. (Station two)You can recognize the station"Musica natura" from a distance by the clefs on the path. At this stele you can hear sounds like gusts of wind in the spruces at the edge of the forest and over the Heid, bird calls and in summer the buzzing of bees. (Station three)Station four deals with the "meaning of it all." It is located in a sheltered spot marked by an ancient spruce tree and a cross. This is the place for reflection.From the plaque on the side of the path, the view falls on the individual pines, disheveled and wildly shaped by storms and snow loads. (Station Five)In the following section, the trail passes through denser, shady spruce forests. They create their own relaxing forest magic on the scenic trail . (Station six)A narrow, marked side path leads to a meditation spot in the forest . (Station seven)In a hollow, at the southeastern edge of the heath, lies the Hoppecke spring - surrounded by a spring stone and a footbridge that begins behind the stream. (Station eight)Station nine is located on an elevated site with a sweeping view of the Hochheide and adjacent woods. Themes include "air and conscious breathing."Station ten is located a little below the summit of the Clemensberg. Here you will find a pole with a wind harp.From here you return to the parking lot.The ten stations:Tuning in placeStation 1 - Landscape balconyStation 2 - See the Heid, experience the HeidStation 3 - Musica naturaStation 4 - place of contemplationStation 5 - disheveled and wildly shaped pinesStation 6 - Scenery pathStation 7 - Meditaltion placeStation 8 - Hoppecke springStation 9 - Air and conscious breathingStation 10 - Wind harp
