Excursion tips in the are
The Lüneburg Heath is a large, geographically predominantly flat-wave heath, geest and forest landscape in the northeast of Lower Saxony. It is named after the city of Lüneburg and comprises the main part of the former principality of Lüneburg. Spacious heathland has been preserved, particularly in the central parts of the Lüneburg Heath. The heathlands have been created since the Neolithic Age by overgrazing the once widespread forests on sterile sandy soils in the Geest area. The remaining remains of this historical cultural landscape are kept open by grazing with heather.
