Welcome briefing and distribution of the bikes (if booked).
A break in the little forest settlement of the forest experience centre “Ehrhorn 1” is worthwhile. The centre is a restored former heath farm. From Wilsede you cycle through forests and heath areas to Niederhaverbeck, further through the valley of the Haverbeeke and back to Schneverdingen.
You cycle past the Walter-Peters-Park to Zahrensen, further through the valley of the Veerse and to the water mill in Lünzen. The mill, which was first mentioned in 1587, was used for grinding till the end of the 70th, in the last 70 years with a steam-, diesel- respectively electro motor. One of originally two water wheels was dismantled and you can take a look on it today. In the village Fintel a round tour through the typical heath village is worthwhile. The tour back leads via Haswede and Osterwede to Schneverdingen.
The train takes you to Soltau (inclusive, duration about 15 minutes). Soltau attracts with a town hall and the Norddeutsche Spielzeugmuseum (toy museum). With the bike you reach the historical place Wieheholz, where you will learn in a refuge something about the war incident in 28th June 1519. You cycle through the southern Osterheide (heath) to a farm called Möhr. The heath farm land was cultivated till 1977. In Wolderdingen you can see a historical church. It was restored in 2000. Through the forests of the Böhmheide you come back to Schneverdingen.
The Aue way leads through meadows and fields via the Fintau to Wintermoor. At the southern edge of the recreational area you can see on a hill the festival area of the heath blossoms. The festival takes place here every year at the end of August. In a show garden, created as a heath circle, you can see 130 different species of heath with about 120,000 plants. You can marvel at the variety of the blooming heath during the whole year.
