    In the north-west of Hamburg - in the Hummelsbüttler Feldmark - is the nature reserve Raakmoor, which with its 18 hectares is one of the smallest nature reserves in the Hanseatic city. The current transitional bog was originally a raised bog that was destroyed by peat deposits and drainage so that the area could be used for agricultural purposes. The remains of kinked and buried trenches still testify to this today. The monotypic flora disappeared except for a few remaining stocks.The Raakmoor is now going through the first phase of restoration after its rewetting.
    The nature reserve has long ceased to correspond to the classic landscape of the raised bog. Large parts of the area are forested with softwood and hardwood. Rather, it can be guessed from broken forest and wet surfaces that nature can find its originality that was once snatched away from it. Nevertheless, after an eventful past, the plants typical of the habitat such as peat moss, moor lily, heather or the insectivorous sundew can be found in the Raakmoor today. The open water areas house swamp calla, water hose and pondweed. At the edge of the bog grows the gaulish shrub, which is not uncommon but known for its aromatic scent. The Vikings already appreciated this as a flavoring for honey wine. Nice to look at is the bluish-blossoming gentian, which provides a special feature in the animal world.

    In the evenings, it is particularly nice and quiet here - then you can enjoy the beautiful nature even more carefree.

    The Raakmoor - west of the Glashütte country road - is wildly adventurous. It is best to explore on foot or by mountain bike.

    An island of wildlife in the middle of the city. In mid-May, the toads in Raakmoor can not be overheard.

    A beautiful nature reserve in northern Hamburg. Good to ride by bike but also good to explore on foot.
