    The landscape in the Neuer Hagen nature reserve is unique. A beautiful, open area with great views. The colorful heather in late summer. In winter when there is snow it is a beautiful cross-country skiing area.

    The Niedersfelder Heide is the largest mountain heath in northwestern Germany. A visit is especially worthwhile in late summer when the landscape turns into a pink carpet.

    The largest of the mountain heaths in north-west Germany, which are rare in Europe, is in Niedersfeld near Willingen. The wide, tree-poor landscape turns into a pink carpet of heather flowers in late summer. The protected area is rightly one of the natural treasures of South Westphalia and is worth seeing in every season. Many benches invite you to linger.

    Beautiful in every season. Especially in early autumn, when the high heath flowers and now in the winter time.

    On the way lies the Hochheide hut. A stop is always worthwhile there. A hike through the heathland is very nice.

    An absolute highlight in the Sauerland, especially when the heather blooms here in August, it is a magical place! And if you are lucky, you will meet the shepherd with his flock.

    Very nice hiking trails in the Hochheide. A trip to Siggi's hut provides the necessary inner cooling.

    "... The New Hagen near Niedersfeld is the largest high heath in North Rhine-Westphalia.
    The extraordinary landscape has its own fascination. Heath and raised bog are home to rare flora and fauna. The 800 meter high area is on the border with Hesse on the northern slope of the Clemensberg and has been under nature protection since 1955. Heidschnucken graze there, act as "biological lawnmowers" and thus ensure the preservation of the heather. Birds like cuckoo, capercaillie and goat milkers build their nests. Hobby biologists can even discover arctic and alpine plants in the Neuer Hagen nature reserve. ... "

    Incredibly beautiful landscape. Nature lovers get their money's worth here. Cell phone junkies will get annoyed if the reception is sometimes poor.
    Hiking trails and cross-country skiing trails are signposted. Also suitable for XC bikers.

    In addition to the wonderful view, I can recommend the Heidehütte to everyone.
    The cake is damn tasty and the service is great.

    A landscape with rare flora - created by humans 3000 years ago. Today, efforts are made to preserve this artificial landscape.

    A worthwhile goal on every hike. In the immediate vicinity is the Clemensberg quarry and the Niedersfeldhütte, which invites you to take a break.

    The nearby hut is great for resting. In the NSG Neuer Hagen there are also benches everywhere to rest.

    Really nice. Those who prefer to have peace and quiet rather not go there on the weekend

    Very nice but overflowing on weekends. Those who want peace and quiet are more likely to go to other times

    The Hochheide is beautiful in every season. Always in summer when the heather is in bloom or in autumn when the mists rise. But be careful - you can get lost here too.

    The Niedersfelder Hochheide is worth seeing in every season. In summer the flowers shine in the sun and in autumn clouds of mist spread over the heather. Many hiking trails lead through the heather.
