The areas of the current Behringer Heide were a small part of the maneuver area,
which was made available to the British troops by the federal government after World War II as part of the Soltau-Lüneburg Agreement. It was not until 1994, after a change in the global political situation, that this maneuvering area was closed and returned to the Nature Conservation Park Association.This heath area was renatured with a great deal of machinery. Today you can see a well-kept, continuous heath area in the Behringer Heide. Thanks to the efforts of the Behringer Tourist Office in cooperation with the Nature Conservation Park Association and the many volunteers from Behringen, this area was saved from overgrowth with pine and birch trees through countless clearings.The Behringer Heide begins directly behind the parking lot on Haverbecker Straße, approx. 500 m from the outskirts of Behringer. This very well-kept heath area is just as suitable for a short walk on the heath as for the start of a long hike or bike tour through the most beautiful areas of the entire Lüneburg Heath.lueneburger-heide.de/natur/sehenswuerdigkeit/955/behringer-heide.html
