Discover the treasures of this branch of industry in the unique cultural landscape in the Südheide Nature Park on this bike tour with the genuine Sülter and certified nature and landscape guide Gabriele Link.
Salt boilers, peat cutters, blacksmiths and wheelwrights, salt recorders and salt drivers and many more shaped life in the heath village Sülze for 500 years. Twenty generations have worked in and around Sülze to extract salt. Although the saltworks were abandoned around 150 years ago, traces of this era can still be found today; but not at first glance!
The bike tour starts in the center of Sülze. Here models of the saltworks testify to the salt extraction. With impressions and insights into the brine transport, the grading and the salt boiling, the way leads to the Kokturhof, today's Kathof.
Always after the fuel peat, it continues through the peat areas in the glacial valley of the Örtze along the old shipping ditches to Hassel and the Twießelhop boiling point. Through the forest and the semi-open grass landscape, the path leads back to Sülze, to dive right back into the landscape towards Lindhorst. Here it becomes clear once again how the brine was repeatedly routed to the changing boiling points via the so-called tube trips. The circuit leads over the old Röhrendamm towards Altensalzkoth, follows the Venusbach and finally ends in Sülze. The cycle hike concludes with the exhibition on the last epoch of salt extraction in Sülze.
Be curious and be surprised when you discover the salt mines. You drive about 25 km on well-paved paths through fields, forests and fields.
