CANCELLED!!! Unfortunately the weather forecast for this Sunday is not good. There will be rain and strong winds. Therefore I decided to cancel the hike.

Let´s discover a different type of Christmas Market - a nostalgic one :)
I have never been to one, so I´m not sure what to expect. However from the Internet I read that Frau Holle from the Grimm Brother's fairy tales, is one of the central charachters. Every evening of the market, Frau Holle (or you may know her as Old Mother Frost) shakes out her pillow from a window high up in the town hall in the center of the town. It is said that when Frau Holle appears from the window and shakes her pillows out, it will snow. Would like to see if it really works :D
Of course first we have to hike there ;)
The hike will be ´Westfalenwanderweg´stage 1, but in the opposite directions. We start from Witten and finsh in beautiful Hansaetic city Hattingen. The hike is not technically difficult, but relatively long, about 20 km in distance, with Protected content uphill and Protected content downhill.

We can organise NRW group tickets.

Looking forward to see you!
