Moving, breathing, and recharging

When experiencing untouched nature and fresh air, there’s always something new and unexpected to discover: In Holstein of course! Holstein brings together beauty and wilderness: the Aukrug nature park, our Pinneberger tree nurseries, the wide marshes of the Elbe, and the banks of the Auenland.

Highlights include the Eekholt Wilderness Park, the Trappenkamp Adventure Forest, the Elbemarschenhaus in Haseldorf, the Carl Zeiss Birdwatching Station in Wedel, and the Burg Forest Museum. There are also many natural spaces to discover, like the Wedeler Au regional park, which includes the Holmer Sandberge (“sand mountains”) inland dunes. Don’t miss a hike through the Himmelmoor moorlands and the Nordoe heath.

If you don’t want to set off alone, choose one of the many tours on offer, and learn more about the inhabitants of this unique natural space at your leisure, or discover rare plants on the roadside. Nature tours, nature parks, and the Castle Islands offer new highlights for nature-lovers and families alike.
