Heathland - Wonderland

During this radial tour you will discover the most beautiful parts of the Lüneburg Heath. It has previously inspired many poets and painters, is a perfect place for romantic people and has lost none of its charm. Heather plants cover the ground in many places, alternate with pine forests, meadows and fields. Heathland sheep graze in the open countryside and charming small towns and villages blend harmoniously into the overall picture. Experience this beautiful scenery in the saddle when cycling on wonderful bike paths around the town of Schneverdingen Heath Heide. Discover the small village Wilsede, which you can reach by bike or carriage, visit the over 300 year old Waldsiedlung Ehrhorn No.1, whose buildings are grouped under thick oak trees around the village square. Stroll through beautiful cottage gardens, you discover original fruit to large orchards and visit a particularly beautiful heather garden with about 120,000 plants and 130 different heath locations, just a few kilometers away from the hotel.

Tour

Look forward to Schneverdingen! You will find heather and juniper bushes, cozy tranquility and merry bustle, tradition, art and culture. 

Just a few kilometers you cycle, than already there is a sign "Welcome to the jewel in the Heath, welcome to the Forest Adventure Ehrhorn". Ehrhorn is a small forest settlement and former farmstead, which is now over 300 years old. The loose ensemble of various buildings is grouped under thick oak trees around the village square. Center is the exhibition space, which emerged as part of the World Exhibition EXPO 2000. Enjoy the peace and serenity of the place and go on an expedition. Explore on your own or with the assistance of the ant-lion "Wezi" the 3.5 km long trail, watch in a large "Formicarium" ants at work and take a look in the "insect village Ehrhorn". After rewarding break you cycle through forest and heath areas to Niederhaverbeck and from there through the valley of Haverbeeke back to Schneverdingen.

Today you cycle through the valley of the Veerse to the watermill in Lünzen. Marvel at the historic mill, which was first mentioned in 1587. Only in 1979, the last tenant stopped with the milling. Today the mill technology is fully obtained with a functioning water wheel. Then you will cycle to the municipality of Fintel, where an attractive tour through the typical heath village is offered. From here you cycle back along the Haswede and Osterwede to Schneverdingen.

Comfortably start your day because the train will take you in only 15 minutes to Soltau. Look forward to the remarkable City Hall and the Museum of Games. With one of the best toy collections in the world and many interactive games the museum is an attraction for young and old alike. Through Wieheholz you will cycle through the southern Osterheide to the courtyard Möhr, a heath farm that was cultivated until 1977. Stroll through the beautiful cottage garden and discover original fruit on the large orchard. Follow the trail "De Uhlenstieg" and discover valuable old trees. Through the wide forest area of Böhmheide you cycle back to the hotel.

Today you can visit a heather garden of superlatives. Approximately 120,000 plants and around 130 different kinds of heath have their place here and present throughout the year its impressive splendor. On the southern edge of the protected landscape Höpener Heide and Höpener Mountain, just minutes from the center of Schneverdingen, in front of an old sheepfold is this particularly magnificent heather garden located. Marvel at the meticulously and lovingly crafted Rondell, where around 80,000 garden heath plants grow. Get an overview of the plants and flowers from the observation deck and marvel at the surrounding landscape conservation area Höpen with its own special seasonal charms. Large heaths with distinctive juniper trees, forest islands, beehives and grazing moorland characterize the face of the beautiful countryside.

Time is flying. For all Heath fans who still want to stay, we are happy to extend your stay in Schneverdingen.
