The Lüneburg Heath Nature Park

The largest continuous heathland areas in Central Europe

In Germany there are 100 particularly valuable cultural landscapes that are protected as nature parks. They all preserve and develop something unique and want to inspire and sensitize for it. The nature park Lüneburger Heide was founded as the first nature park in Germany and is today one of the largest and best known of its kind. It has an extension of over 107,000 hectares and comprises the largest contiguous heathland in Central Europe. These are located in the Lüneburger Heide nature reserve around the Wilseder Berg, the heart of the nature park. But also moors, old forests, heath streams, rivers and vital villages with old farms and thatched houses are part of this unique cultural landscape and are well worth seeing.

The cultural landscape of the Lüneburger Heide Nature Park has been created over centuries through human influence and today offers a habitat for many rare plant and animal species.
