Natural trails and forest paths wind up the Wesergebirge (Weser Hills) mountain chain near Rinteln to three castles in the Wesergebirge. The castles (Schaumburg, Osterburg & Paschenburg) are all very different in terms of their history and appearance, so hikers experience a diverse tour.

Arrival and departure

You can reach the Drei-Burgen-Route via the Schaumburg, Deckbergen, Springsteine or Schneegrund hiking car parks. The towns of Rinteln and Hessisch Oldendorf lie in close proximity to the tour and can be reached via the NordWestBahn (Weserbahn RB 77 Hildesheim-Bünde).

The specifics of the tour

The approx. 13 km long tour, which is marked and signposted as RI 5, can also be tailored to suit individual needs as nearby circular hiking routes mean it can be curtailed. Find out more on the information boards in the hiking car parks!
