    Heidschnuckenweg "Most beautiful hiking trail in Germany 2014"

    The Heidschnuckenweg connects the unique nature of the Lüneburg Heath with the historically and culturally high-quality offer of the region like no other path. Over 30 heath areas are connected with each other.

    From the butterfly park in Buchholz over the Wilseder mountain, the "heart" of the heath, the mystical "Pietzmoor" in Schneverdingen, or the heath lake in Müden (Örtze). The beauties of nature line up like this and are not limited to the topic of "heathland" .......

    So this beautiful section is officially called Pastor-Bode-Weg. It is part of the Pastor Bode hiking trail from the Lüneburg St. Michael's Church to Wilseder Berg. Pastor Bode went this way in 1877 as a young man with his father. This hike has deeply impressed him and contributed his admiration to this heathland.naturpark-lueneburger-heide.de/aktiv-und-mobil-in-der-heide/wandern/pastor-bode-wegAlso on this section runs the Heidschnuckenweg from Undeloh to Niederhaverbeck (Stage 4). The Heidschnuckenweg leads from Hamburg-Fischbek to the Celler castle.
    The section is officially a hiking trail, but cycling is not prohibited. However, some rough tires are an advantage. A wonderful way!PS: Jacobsweg he is too, that to completeness.

    Pastor Bode Weg is dedicated to the famous Heidepastor Wilhelm Bode (1860-1927). As pastor of Egestorf, Wilhelm Bode worked tirelessly to preserve the heath landscape. With the purchase of the Totengrund in 1906 and the establishment of the Naturschutzpark Association in 1909, the foundation stone was laid for today's Lüneburg Heath nature reserve on his initiative.
    Route: Lüneburg - Salzhausen - Egestorf - Wilsede
    Total length: 44 km
    Signage: The path is signposted on public signs and intermediate signs (yellow arrow with black border).

    There is also plenty of variety: once across the pasture (when the herd of cattle is not in the way) and afterwards along the wooden walkway.
