Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The forest share in Ahrensburg is approx. 18% about twice the average value of the state of Schleswig-Holstein. The largest forest areas in Ahrensburg are Forst Beimoor and Forst Hagen.
Here you will find a very varied mosaic of predominantly younger forest stands. Beautiful old oak and beech trees have been preserved, especially on the slopes of the tunnel valley and along the side valleys. Rare bird species such as black woodpecker and common raven are at home here. Bats, amphibians and reptiles also find suitable habitats.
More than 40% of the forest area is not used economically. In particular, quarry forests made from swamp birch and black alder can therefore develop completely undisturbed and old wood stocks remain unaffected. Dead wood is left in stock and rare tree species are promoted.In addition to its economic and ecological importance, Forst Hagen also serves to experience nature and relax. Many forest paths and trails invite you to hike and bike tours. They open up views of the lower meadows and break forests of the tunnel valley.
The Waiting Mountains in the northeast of the forest are the highest elevation far and wide. A geological-archaeological hiking trail leads to a number of interesting sites in the forest.
The forest Hagen is on both sides of the Hagener Allee and north of the settlement Am Hagen. It is part of the Stellmoor-Ahrensburger Tunneltal nature reserve.ahrensburg.de/Wirtschaft-Tourismus/Tourismus/Naherholung/Forst-Hagen
