If you want to discover the moors, you should pay a visit to the Tister Bauernmoor near Sittensen or the Huvenhoopsmoor near Gnarrenburg. But if water pursuits are more to your taste, then try out the swimming lakes such as the Weichelsee and the Grossen Bullensee. The “Ronolulu” water park and sauna complex is also fun for everyone. Families will especially love the LandPark Lauenbrück.

The NORDPFADE hold particular appeal for hikers in the region. In winter, the landscape is enveloped by snow; the lush green of springtime is followed by cornflowers blooming in summer in fields and meadows; and in autumn, the woods are ablaze with the colour of an Indian summer. Walkers in the region have no steep hills to climb. The NORDPFADE hiking trails, between 5 and 32 kilometres in length, are a complete pleasure to walk! The NORDPFAD Dör’t Moor was named “Germany’s most beautiful hiking trail 2021”. The region also offers numerous half-day and full-day bike rides, such as the Krӓuterroute and the Hamburg to Bremen long-distance cycle route, along with a well-signposted network of cycle paths.

Further regional information is available on the website, or on Facebook and Instagram.

Active holidays on the Nordpfaden!

Rotenburg (Wümme) district 

The NORDPFADE hiking region is conveniently situated between Hamburg, Hanover and Bremen. The gently undulating countryside was formed by powerful events in the Ice Age and the warmer interglacial periods. This gave rise to the typical north German landscape of extensive wooded areas, wonderful expanses of heathland, lush meadows and fields, mysterious moorland, widely branching rivers and natural lakes. Nestled among the features of this unique landscape are idyllic villages and delightful little towns whose cultural offerings are rich and varied.

Hiking is the ideal way to explore and enjoy the landscape. The gently undulating “Geest” moorland provides plenty of variety, and the absence of steep uphill climbs means that walking is pure, unhurried pleasure.
