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.
