Route of the three villages - Voßhöfen

The circular route:


Route description:

At the  signpost, we turn left to the road  Am Böllberg. From here we have a wonderful view over the Ruhr valley to the Ardey Mountains. We go to the right and follow the road to the  organic farm Sackern on the corner of Albringhauser Straße (connection to the Albringhausen circular path). Turn left to the intersection  Esborner Straße/Voßhöfener Straße, past the war memorial straight ahead, then turn right on the road through the meadows.  Im Beile to the house no. 55. In front of this half-timbered house, the narrow road  Im Braken leads to the junction of the street  In der Teimenbecke. Here we briefly take a nice view of Alt-Wetter and half right on Grundschöttel.

The path continues on the right, after about 50 m turn  left along the forest past a lovingly restored half-timbered house to the brook bed of the  Teimbecke. On the left you will pass through the forest and follow the meadow path up to the small street  Am Lurke. We continue to the intersection  Im Blumental. Once there, we turn right and follow the road "Im Blumental", which later turns into the  Schlebuscher Straße. On a  slight hillside to the left is a wonderful view over wide fields to Grundschöttel, Alt-Wetter, to the Ahrenberg and the Höstreichberg. After approximately 300 m, we turn left into the street  Im Steinhausen and after approx. 400 m you reach the old manor  Gut Steinhausen. Here we continue straight ahead, pass some resting benches and continue along the private path  Am Schlehbusch past an old farm to the intersection  Am Hasenkamp, turn left and after about 300 m turn left again into the street  Am Moselshaus. After approx. 150 m it goes down to the valley behind the farm in the curve  to the left through the forest. Continue along the path  Am Kapp ​​to the left and turn left again up the path up to the road  Im Blumental. We go downhill to the right and then left over the brook bed of the  Teimbecke. On the left there is an  obelisk, which marks the center of gravity of our urban area.

After approximately 500 m, the road turns in the  curve with the resting benches to the left uphill over a narrow path through the wooded area to  Voßhöfener Straße. We cross the street and we are now on the  Ruhrhöhenweg. From here we have a nice view of Grundschöttel, Alt-Wetter with the Harkortturm, the Hospital of Herdecke, the Arenberg and the Wartenberg.

We leave the Ruhrhöhenweg at the junction  An der Heile. Before we turn left into the forest path, we have again a wonderful view to the right into the Ruhr valley over Haus Mallinckrodt, Witten with the town hall tower, Wengern and Bommerholz with the water tower. At the junction  Am Bramenkamp we turn semi-left. At the  first fork we turn right and cross the Höstreichberg (234 m) with its old beech forest. At the  transformers house Voßhöfen we turn left. We reach the  Voßhöfener Straße and turn right at the stop into the street  Am Hödey. We follow this downhill and have left a nice view over fields and meadows. Then we reach  Esborner Straße. We turn right and behind the old half-timbered house immediately  to the left, along an old stone wall, in the direction of the clubhouse. Before the clubhouse, a  narrow, steep hiking trail leads to the road  Am Böllberg. To the right we reach the starting point of our hike, the  parking lot Böllberg.
