The Nordpfad Dör’t Moor trail has been named the most beautiful hiking trail in 2021.

The 654 hectare nature reserve Großes und Weißes Moor is an absolute joy for nature lovers. It is here that NABU Rotenburg and the District of Rotenburg (Wümme) have created four nature discovery trails and the NORDPFAD Dör’t Moor is one of them. A fantastic trail for families with children!

Special features of the trail

The ‘Kleine Moorrunde’ loop: The 7.5 kilometre Kleine Moorrunde loop in the NABU trail guide system leads to the Butterweg and is an ideal alternative to the main trail. ‘Dee Bodderpad’ (‘The Butter Path’ in Low German) was once the shortest distance between Kirchwalsede and Rotenburg. Many farmers on the moor travelled this difficult path to sell their butter in Rotenburg.

Links with other NORDPFADEN trails:
The NORDPFAD trail runs parallel to the 21.3 kilometre NORDPFAD Rotenburger Wasserreich trail for a while. There is an access path (1.1 kilometre) to starting point 2 of the 13.7 kilometre NORDPFAD Federlohmühlen trail.
