    The landscape of the Ilmena lowlands is wonderfully varied. It is determined by wide meadows and pastures, which are broken by rows of trees, strewn marshes and broken forests. The idyllic heath river Ilmenau is a largely natural river with numerous side streams. It is by far the largest and most important body of water in the Lüneburg Heath.
    The Ilmenau arises south of Uelzen from the confluence of the Gerdau and Stederau heath rivers. It winds its way through the varied landscape to a greater or lesser extent until it finally flows into the Elbe at the gates of Hamburg near Hoopte. On these 90 kilometers it flows through places like Bad Bevensen, Bienenbüttel, Deutsch Evern and Lüneburg. North of Lüneburg, the Ilmenau merges into the Ilmenau Canal and from there can only be regarded as close to nature to a limited extent.
    Since 1999 the river has been a "European nature reserve" in accordance with the Fauna-Flora-Habitat Directive (FFH). Being on the bike along the Ilmenau is a real experience. The Ilmenau cycle path, which is oriented as close as possible to the spring streams and the river bank of the Ilmenau, leads right through the FFH area. By largely dispensing with additional road construction measures, the effects on nature and landscape could be kept very low. The successful protection measures and natural highlights of the Ilmenau nature reserve are explained in detail at 31 nature information points.

    In addition to wet and wet grassland, flowing and still waters, bushes and shrubs, reed beds, sedge settlers and high perennial areas, it is particularly the areas influenced by the tides that make up the value of the area. Only protected against storm surges by the Ilmenau barrage, ebb and flow swings in and out twice daily with a meter-high tidal range and create extensive tidal reeds, freshwater mud flats and tidal creeks, habitats that have become extremely rare in the tidal Elbe with the associated flora and fauna , especially in the large extension that still exists here.nabu-winsen-luhe.de/projekte/nsg-ilmenau-luhe-niederung

    On my tours to Hoopte I always stopped on this bridge, and enjoyed the elevated view. Especially this view over the Ilmenau is wonderful. From this point you can look far into the country.

    The direct route from Laßrönne to Stöckte and Winsen leads over the pier over the Ilmenau. Until 1964 there was an old bascule bridge, which was then replaced by a sliding bridge. This sliding bridge was replaced in 1981 by a fixed bridge. The bridge leads relatively high over the Ilmenau, so that even larger ships can pass through. The height gives you even better views of the Ilmenau.de.wikipedia.org/wiki/La%C3%9Fr%C3%B6nne

    There are no mountains on this route, except for bridges and dikes. The view is even better over the flat land.

    It is a varied path that you can ride on the dike. You get a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside.

    The Stöckter Deich is the natural border in the south of the port area and the connecting route by bike to Winsen (Luhe). It leads through the old Stöckte with its crouched, often thatched farmhouses and the scenic views of the outer dike. Here you can cycle excellently and relaxed on the dike with beautiful views through the beautiful landscape.stoeckter-hafen-ev.de/galerie/16534/am-st%C3%B6ckter-deich-entlang.html

    The Stöckter Deich is a scenic gem of 5 kilometers between the city of Winsen and the Elbe. A place to relax, walk, jog and bike, enjoy nature and landscape.kulturlotse.de/ort/stckter-deich-7598837424913201280

    The approx. 434 ha large nature reserve "Ilmenau-Luhe-Niederung" is located north of the city of Winsen (Luhe) in the natural area Harburger Elbmarschen. It is a varied structured marsh landscape, which is traversed by Luhe and Ilmenau and is crossed by numerous ditches and Prielen. The area is dominated by the tidal influence.Protective purpose is in particular the conservation and development of near-natural, mostly tidal rivers, freshwater wadden and other low-grade habitats and an open to semi-open, structurally rich landscape with mostly extensively used wet grassland as a habitat of characteristic, partly endangered plant and animal species (such. White stork, lapwing, common snipe, beaver, otter, river and sea lamprey) and communities.Source:

    There is a great path up the Stöckter Deich, along a beautiful landscape, to Hoopte in the harbor, until just before the ferry pier. The path consists largely of a solid mixture of gravel and gravel and clay that is easy to drive on.
