Anyone up for a Sunday hike? As the weather forecast is still a bit uncertain, i would post an easy hike...but if the weather turned out to be sunny, i would be quite happy to just do sightseeing in the historical center of Hildesheim and go hiking in Bad Harzburg.

Anyway, the main idea is to explore the Unesco heritage of Hildesheim, founded (according to the legend) in Protected content Louis the Pious, one of the sons of Charlemagne, who lost a relic-holding pendant while hunting and interpreted this as a divine sign that a church was to be founded there.

We can combine the visit with a walk to the lookout points of Katzberg and Lerchenberg, as described on
Protected content

On the other hand, if it were sunny and you were up for a longer hike, we can catch the 11:14 train to Bad Harzburg and hike to the Raven rock (Rabenklippe, 90 minutes to reach it)
