The starting point is the tourist information office and nature park information center in the pedestrian zone. We cross the road at the traffic lights and turn left into the Volkspark after the "Diva" restaurant. We now walk along the path to the small bridge. We cross this and then reach the historic villa in the park. From there, we keep left and walk uphill to the exit of the Volkspark. Now we cross the road at a small pedestrian island and reach the other part of the pedestrian zone, where we keep left. After the "Bäcker mit Herz" café, we turn right up the street until we reach Kirchstraße (on the right) after the Volksbank. We walk up Kirchstraße for a few meters in the direction of Jesus-Christus-Kirche , which we can already see from below. At the top, we take a half circle around the church (and of course you can also look at it from the inside), turn right and leave the church grounds first onto Hochstraße and then left into the alley in front of the kindergarten. Here we take a small footpath (Himecker Weg) in the direction of the district court. Now turn right and then left again at the next opportunity and follow Hochstraße / later Kampstraße up the hill before crossing under a railroad viaduct and following the road a little further on before turning right again onto a footpath.Once at the top, we have a great view of the Meinhardus Mattenschanzen (short detour possible) and the "Schützenkreisel" before following the road a few meters to the left. Alternatively, after the Schützenkreisel, you can also take the path at the Schützenplatz, which runs parallel to the road. After the Schützenplatz, we cross Heerstraße at a pedestrian island and after a few meters turn into the Fritz-Paulmann-Weg, which takes us to the Volme spring after a few minutes on the right. It's worth taking a short break here. We soon reach the bypass again, follow it for a few meters and turn left again onto the small road"Am Stadion", which now leads us back towards the center below the Fischbauchbrücke bridge.Passing Meinerzhagen's outdoor pool (in summer you can plan a short refreshment stop here) and the municipal miniature golf course (you can also plan a stop here), the walk now takes us along Löher Weg to a small footpath on the right towards the historic"Krim" ensemble of houses, where the Krugmann grain distillery is located today. We now walk straight ahead for a few more meters before turning right into Prumbomweg just before the traditional Gassmann department store. We walk down this road, cross Otto-Fuchs-Platz(a great place to cool our feet in summer) and follow the sidewalk after the square to the left until we reach our starting point, the tourist information office and nature park information center.
