Westliches Hollerland (Wildlife Refuge)

Creative Commons: Muschelschubser

This is a beautiful run in the Westliches Hollerland — a wildlife refuge in northern Bremen, near the University. The refuge is sort of a floodplain terrain, with an open, green landscape and water coursing through. This 10k route is mainly on the Jan Weiners Wanderweg, an off-road path running through the refuge, with an option for looping back along another path.

The southern end of the path starts at the Sporthalle Horn sports complex, just east of the University [running track 0.5 km west!]. The path is up to a 4 km straight shot through the Refuge, ending in the Untere Wümme, a large nature reserve on the narrow Wümme river. You can do an out and back (8k), or follow our route which does a small loop west along the river and then east along the Suhrfleet stream, connecting back to the Jan Weiners Wanderweg.

Add-Ons: Combine with elements of our Stadtwald/University route, just to the west.
