    The Höltigbaum is approximately equal parts in Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein. Together with the adjoining Stellmoor-Ahrensburger Tunneltal and the Stellmoorer Tunneltal it is a nationally significant, more than 1,000 hectares protected area. Here you can experience in places Galloways haut / fellnah without pasture fences in between and watch. A hike through this beautiful nature reserve I can absolutely recommend in every season.

    The transmitter mast is a very good orientation point for tours in the area.

    The radio station Hamburg-Rahlstedt is a transmitter for FM and DVB-T.
    The old tower was built in 1994 as a 163 meter high, braced steel framework. After completion of the new transmission mast, the structure was dismantled in March 2010. In 2009 work began on the construction of a new 250 meter high transmission tower in the immediate vicinity of the old transmission tower, which was to improve the distribution of DVB-T television programs in particular. The new transmission tower is the third tallest structure in Hamburg.

    A walk through the Höltigbaum leads through a slightly hilly terrain that is characteristic of the area. The trails run along open pastures and small valleys, often with streams or only temporarily water-bearing sinks. All around you can also see beautiful, old, thick, large oak trees. If the human being in the Holtigbaum were not agricultural or nursing, the entire area would most likely have an almost closed oak birch forest.

    This path leads across the pasture between the Galloways. You can experience and watch the good-natured and impressive cattle here very well.

    Really nice to see and the many information boards to find out what has become of the Bw's former training site since 1992.

    A great, varied area with many rare plants and insects. One or the other rare bird species can also be found in the area. So please stay on the ways and the dogs have to stay on the leash. It is better that way, because there can also be adder on the heathland. And the dear cattle share the meadow with the hikers in some areas.
    Since the area is quite extensive, it is easy to hike.

    Here black Galloways and white sheep graze peacefully side by side in the beautiful nature. You can experience them here without a separating fence / see / fellnah and watch.

    Galloways are a dominant polled meat breed. They originally come from the south west of Scotland and are now common all over the world. They are peaceful, frugal and resistant and produce good meat performance with excellent meat quality even when kept close to nature. Galloways have a high feed conversion and a very low maintenance requirement. Galloways are long-lasting, fertile and easy-calving, whereby their calves are light and of great vitality.

    Between the Wandse with its wetlands in the north and the former Panzerübungsgelände in the south, a vast heathland stretches here with narrow paths, with sheep and goats and a wonderful view to the adjacent forests.

    For dog owners, the outlet on the Höltigbaum is a must. We first go to the dog run and then my dog is relaxed on a leash. Attention - in the nature reserve Höltigbaum is Leinenzwang!

    Until 1992, the Höltigbaum was a training area for the German armed forces, which was mainly used by the units of the Panzer Grenadier Brigade 17 stationed in Hamburg-Rahlstedt.
    Today Höltigbaum is one of the largest nature reserves in Hamburg and is protected according to the European Fauna-Flora-Habitat Directive.
