The Lüneburg Heath

Lüneburg Heath

Heidschnucke and blooming nature

8 Days / 7 Nights
The Lüneburg Heath

Romanticist, venturous roller coaster heroes and friends of culture – they all love the moor land of Lüneburg like poet Hermann Löns did. We are not surprised about that! Amusement parks, old timbered house and an especial train station in Uelzen: this region is multifunctional – and you will find no mountains here. But this is no disadvantage for bikers. You will cycle on excellent bike paths. This moor land and your bike: that fits.

Hermannsburg tells you a story more than 1000 years ago. Herzog from Sachsen, Hermann Billung, had probably built a castle near where nowadays the Peter Paul church is and where later the city developed.
