    The Pietzmoor is the source area of ​​the Böhme and a unique natural area within the Lüneburg Heath. Innumerable different plants thrive in the extensive moorland and it is an important habitat for insects and birds.

    With the bike, I would not complete the circuit. But the boardwalk is too narrow and you have to focus more on driving and can not enjoy the landscape.

    Round trip on 1 m wide Holgbohlendamm not suitable as a bike path.

    Interesting nature trail through the largest moor of the Lüneburg Heath with many ponds and Moorweiher. Here are interesting mosses and animals to watch. The Bohlendamm is only about 1 m wide and not suitable for cycling because of encounters with pedestrians.

    Very nice circuit through the moor. Turn off or push the wheel first, as the bridge is sometimes very narrow.

    Unfortunately it is currently closed because you cannot keep the distance to other hikers on the boardwalk.

    This section is to drive on a few pedestrians as a skilled cyclist. However, you should push the bike often to avoid driving past the beauties of nature.

    Beware the Holzweg is partially (especially in wet conditions) extremely smooth. The path is easy to ride the bike, at the edge are partially up nails from the wood. There are also many hikers, so you should only drive the way if not so busy!

    The Pietzmoor is located on the southern edge of the Lüneburg Heath nature reserve and still covers an area of approximately 2.5 km². The emergence of the raised bog was favored by the trough layer and by impermeable layers of clay in the subsoil. Profile investigations carried out in 1975 showed that the maximum peat thickness was 7.50 meters. If one assumes an annual growth of the peat-forming chips (peat moss) of about 1 millimeter, then the age of the pietz moor is almost 8,000 years.

    The Pietzmoor has experienced a rather atypical development. Unlike most other bogs, it did not emerge from a nutrient-rich lake that has turned into a flat bog and has developed into a raised bog over time. Instead, after the ice age, cotton grass, sedge and peat moss settled in a water-rich depression very early on and continued to overgrow them. This formation of the raised bog is characteristic of numerous moorland bogs, whereby the acidic, silicate subsoil should play a decisive role.

    Hundreds of years of use almost meant the end of this gem. Thanks to successful renaturation, the Pietzmoor can now grow again and remains as the "history book of nature".

    Moor has become something rare today. Undisturbed, natural bogs hardly exist or not at all. But that was different. At the end of the 18th century, Lower Saxony was largely covered with moorland. Except for the smallest remnants, all of these have been drained, peated and turned into arable land today. The biodiversity that has been irretrievably lost is unimaginable.
