Activities for young and old, for nature lovers as well as for fans of city trips or amusement parks

The Lüneburg Heath does not only impress with its natural beauty. Within a short distance from our hotel you will find activities for young and old like the Heide-Park Soltau or the wildlife park in Nindorf with the tree top walk Heide Himmel.

The heath towns of Bispingen and Schneverdingen invite you to visit, as well as the salt and hanseatic city of Lüneburg and the half-timbered town of Celle.

Wilseder Berg, Totengrund and Steingrund – three of many nature experiences

The Lueneburg Heath nature reserve starts directly in front of your hotel door. A few kilometres away you will find a whole series of natural beauties  such as the highest elevation of the North German Geest, the Wilseder Berg, at 169.2 meters. Close to it, you can also see the Totengrund and the Steingrund, which you should definitely explore.

You should not miss the heath village Wilsede: Thatched half-timbered houses under gnarled oaks and beeches, old stone walls and cobblestone streets – it seems as if time has stood still here. Unique and unforgettable. You can find more information under: heath village Wilsede.

Greifvogelgehege (Bird of prey enclosure) Bispingen

See birds of prey and owls at close range from May 1 to October 31 during guided tours of Frigga Steinmann-Laage’s bird of prey enclosure. In the middle of the woods of the “Raubkammerheide” the animals live in an enclosure in almost natural habitat. The guided tours, during which Mrs. Steinmann-Laage introduces her “subtenants”, have a special charm due to the personal relationship between falconer and birds.

Cities to see


The heath blossom town invites you to visit the year-round blooming heath garden and the One World Church (Expo 2000 project).


The vacation community of Bispingen is in the centre of the Lueneburg Heath nature park. Here you can ideally combine an adventure vacation with a heath vacation. There is hardly any other region in the Lueneburg Heath where you will find so many attractions close together.


The old salt and Hanseatic city of Lüneburg, which gave its name to an entire landscape, was one of the richest cities in northern Germany. In the old town you can still find the most important gable forms of all style epochs right next to each other. The Lüneburg town hall on the market square is unique in Germany in its size and beauty. The “Alte Kran (old crane)”, Lüneburg’s landmark, is as much a part of the townscape as the towers of the three large churches: Nikolaikirche, Johanniskirche and Michaeliskirche.


Discover the romantic town on the southern edge of the Lüneburg Heath with its picturesque half-timbered buildings from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, the ducal palace, the town church and the historic town hall on a tour through the pedestrian zone of the old town. The museum of ethnology, the Bomann Museum, provides an overview of the state and city history.
