Hannover, Germany

Benther Berg

A great way to experience the quiet German countryside is to head to the southwest outskirts of Hannover and run along the Benther Berg ridgeline. The trails in this mountain forest are not overwhelmingly steep, but there is a good selection of smooth singletrack winding along the ridge. Alternatively, runners can enjoy the gravel and brick farm roads around the village of Benthe, which are popular amongst cyclists for their farmland scenery and sculptures. We’ve mapped a relatively flat 7.5 km loop around the ridgeline starting from Benthe, but you can also create your own route around the area’s paths. Benthe is about 10 km west of central Hannover and easily reachable via transport.
