Tips

  • Der Heidjer Radler

    The Tister Bauernmoor is a raised bog that was declared a nature reserve on May 2, 2002. It has a size of 570 hectares and, together with the Ekelmoor nature reserve to the south, the Avensermoor and the Everstorfer Moor, forms part of the large raised bog area Ekelmoor, which has a total area of 1220 hectares.
    The crane has settled here again and is raising its young. The Tister Bauernmoor is one of the most important crane spots in the northwestern German lowlands. In late autumn several thousand cranes rest in the moor before they fly on to their winter quarters. In 2008 around 5,000 resting cranes were counted here. On Monday, October 27, 2014, official crane counters from NABU then counted and officially confirmed a record of 20,600 cranes in the Tister Bauernmoor. The rare white-tailed eagle and osprey have also been sighted here

    For wintering in southern Europe, for breeding in the north: every year cranes fly back and forth between these two destinations. There are two fixed routes for this, the Baltic-Hungarian and the Western European train route.
    Over a quarter of a million cranes from East Germany, Sweden, Norway, and more rarely from Estonia or Finland, fly across Germany on the Western European migration route. The rest areas in the north in particular play a central role. In Lower Saxony, the Tister Bauernmoor is now one of the most important resting places.

    Shortly before sunrise, the birds start to move, they wake up, clean themselves and then leave the moor in groups with loud shouts and trumpets. They can still be found up to 20 kilometers away. They spend the day mainly looking for food: the cranes find plenty of food, especially in harvested maize fields, and the geese graze in the meadows.

    The path from the wood shredder is strenuous to drive, in good weather there may be many hikers on the way, which would make driving even more complicated. However, the effort is worth it!

    Addendum: I was recently made aware that the way from the parking lot to the viewpoint is closed to cyclists (prohibition sign).

    From the main path, paths such as the Heideweg and the Schwingrasenweg lead into the moor.

    The nature reserve near the small town of Tiste in the Rotenburg / Wümme district is a worthwhile destination for nature lovers and those seeking peace and quiet. The wide hiking trail begins directly behind the well-signposted parking lot. After a short passage through a small piece of forest, the moor opens up to the visitor. The main path leads over 1.6 kilometers in a line to wide, flat water areas where numerous water birds such as gray geese and shovelers live. Resting cranes can be observed from two observation towers, especially in autumn.

    The Tister Bauernmoor has a beautifully landscaped circular path with lookout stations for observing the bird world. There is also a small moor railway, which is an exciting thing for children.
    A small restaurant takes care of your physical well-being - a nice destination.
