The very close active experience of nature

Using more than 700 km of hiking and 300 km of bridle paths you can experience a landscape owning a special character with its half-open heathlands. Visiting the area on the marked trails is possible on foot, by bicycle, on horseback or by carriage waiting for visitors at the parking lots. To protect the landscape and the wildlife a vehicle ban applies to private cars.

The extent and tranquility of the countryside invites to reflection and relaxation. No wonder that the Lüneburg Heath is known better then the Land of Lower Saxony - it is a unique landscape.

Scenic highlights: Wilseder Berg, Toten- and Steingrund, Pietzmoor
