When the broom heath blossoms from mid-August to early September, gigantic purple carpets spread across Hamburg's third-largest nature reserve, the Fischbeker Heide, giving the landscape a grand character. A walk in this season is a special experience for the eyes and ears, because unlike his bigger sister, the Lüneburg Heath, the Hamburg Sanctuary is far from overcrowded. And who brings the right leisure, is rewarded by the discovery of an immense species-rich flora and fauna.
