Bike Touring Highlight

  • Sue C.

    The Hamberger Moor is a former high moor, which is counted as the Teufelsmoor. It lies between the Beek in the east and the villages Ströhe and Spreddig in the west. After centuries of peat extraction - here only as peasant peat in Sodenstechverfahren - today's approximately 300 ha large nature reserve Hamberger Moor has been rewetted as planned and large area.In addition to marsh birch forest and various stages of degeneration and regeneration of the raised bog, areas that are partially or completely flooded in the year are particularly important for endangered plant and moss species as well as birds, dragonflies, butterflies and predatory species.Reachable by bicycle, you can find here moor lakes, Kleinseggenriede, peat moss, bog heather, moor wool grass and cranberries, in the birch forests also Waldtorfmoose. In some decades, some peat slabs of 50-60 cm thickness have formed again.Excerpt from teufelsmoor.eu
