Many people know the heathland region of Uelzen for its famous Hundertwasser train station or its iodine-saline spa in Bad Bevensen. But the district in the east of the Lüneburg Heath has a lot more to offer. Situated some 100 km from the major cities of Hamburg, Hanover and Braunschweig, the region’s scenic diversity holds a number of surprises.
The holiday region of Wendland.Elbe offers plenty of opportunity for self-expression – for being artistic and creative, pursuing activities out and about in the countryside or simply for slowing down and focusing on yourself. The Lower Saxony Elbtalaue biosphere reserve and the Elbhöhen-Wendland nature park ensure the preservation of the varied natural landscapes of Wendland – from the untouched mudflats of the Elbe to the purple heather on the Heath and the extensive woodland areas. Visitors can experience this diversity at close quarters on the many cycle, hiking and horse-riding trails.
