    Not without reason the most beautiful hiking trail in Germany 2014 elected! Actually, one is still very close to the Hamburg city area. If you walk along these heath valleys you might partly believe you are on another planet. Especially in late summer, when it glows purple everywhere, here is a natural spectacle beyond compare. Hiking in the lowlands can hardly be better!

    The complete Heidschnuckenweg leads from Hamburg Fischbek to Celle (223 km). The section in the Fischbeker Heide is a terrific prelude. However, especially on the weekend you can be full (recreation area of southern Hamburg).

    I hiked the Heidschnuckenweg in November 2018 from Neugraben to Soltau in 6 days. It was bomb weather and I can only recommend it to everyone! You get a little bit to yourself.

    Just a great way - no matter what the weather and at what time of the year. Not only the heather blossom can enchant.

    The Heidschnuckenweg is a quality hiking trail that has been recognized by the German Hiking Association. The landscape of the Heidschnuckenweg is extremely diverse. It connects the most beautiful heather areas, leads through the car-free nature reserve, through floodplains and forests and past herds of heather sheep and picturesque heather villages. It is always crowned by elevations with fabulous views.

    The second stage is very nice, I like to start from Bhf Suerhop, the piece from Buchholz to Suerhop is not that great. And if possible in Aug / Sep. do not go on sunday, there's a lot going on, because of the pagan blossom.

    Here is the official entrance to the Heidschnuckenweg. The easiest way to travel with the S-Bahn via Hamburg and get off at the station Fischbeck. Then it is not far to this entry into a wonderful hike that leads in stages to Celle.

    Here on the edge of the Fischbeker Heide starts the 223km Heidschnuckenwanderweg from Hamburg to Celle. You can come directly by car and park well or take the S-Bahn (S3) to Hamburg-Fischbek and then run 2km ago.

    Medium-difficult hike (12.5 km) leads once over the runway of the gliders. This can be avoided 200 meters further "down".

    Start of the Heidschnuckenweg in Hamburg Fischbek. Great views and beautiful landscape, but also very demanding first kilometers.

    There is a parking lot right at the beginning of the Heidschnuckenweg, which is the ideal starting point for the first stage of the Heidschnuckenweg if you come by car.

    Shortly thereafter, the Fischbeker Heide begins, which is well worth seeing ... even for daily stages.

    The best time to walk this path is from mid-August to mid-September. In the middle of the heather blossom. Hermann Loens was right about "the heath is burning!"
    A must for every flower lover
