If you are looking for a few relaxing days in the countryside, you will find a very special place in the northern Lüneburg Heath. Whether you’re cycling or on foot, there’s a lot to discover, with seemingly infinite views across the Heath as you watch the birds or listen to the bleating of the moorland sheep – an intense experience that allows you to forget the stresses of everyday life. The countryside of the Lüneburg Heath is a real treasure trove, and the Northern Heath, in particular, has much to be discovered.
An ideal way of exploring the area is by mountain bike, though the northern Heath is also the perfect terrain for more leisurely bike tours at any time of year. One of the most popular routes is the Seeve-Radweg, the various sections of which bring you into contact with a natural wilderness and allow you to recharge your batteries.
The opportunities for walking here are abundant, with the popular Heidschnuckenweg taking you from Buchholz, through the Höllenschlucht gorge and up onto the Brunsberg. At 129 meters above sea level, it offers a wonderful, unimpeded view across the Heath.
The Fairytale Trail in Jesteburg, where you feel as though you are in an enchanted forest, is an adventure for young and old alike. After an exciting walk, you can refuel with cake and a coffee or hot chocolate in the “Hof-Café im Lohofer Speicher“. In Egestorf’s Barefoot Park, you can “liberate your feet“, explore all kinds of terrain and rediscover all your senses. Pretty little Egestorf cannot fail to impress, with its lovely half-timbered houses and ancient trees.
