Hardly any nature park in Germany can score higher points for having such a variety of attractions and sights than the Lüneburger Heide. Why travel far when the best things are so close to home? Especially Hamburg residents and visitors should take this saying to heart as a green oasis lies just a few kilometres south of the vibrant Hanseatic city. It attracts visitors with its countless excursion possibilities and activities. Whether you long for peace and quiet, consciously want to experience nature, or want to spend an exciting day with thrills, the Lüneburger Heide offers you all this and much more.
For example, you can take an easy-going hike through the beautiful Totengrund, kayak or canoe along the numerous waterways or entertain yourself at one of the 14 amusement parks. Numerous cultural sites that are worth seeing, such as the Welfen Castle in Celle, the Salt Museum in Lüneburg and the Open-air Museum on the Kiekeberg, also invite you to experience the region’s history and culture upclose. Probably the most popular sight at the Lüneburger Heide is, and remains, the heath itself. From July to September especially, you can marvel at the vibrant plants in full splendour in the Lüneburger Heide nature park.
