    The worry is a tributary of the Eider. At the end of the last ice age, there was only a hesitant colonization with plants, sand that swirled around deposited again and again and condensed - a dune landscape was created. An important remnant of this inland dune landscape near Sorgwohld became a nature reserve in 1936
    explained, as you have an impression of the earlier in
    gets a large part of Schleswig-Holstein's covering dune and heathland with their typical plant and animal species. Since some
    Years, the area also belongs to the Europe-wide network of protected areas
    "NATURA 2000".

    Why wander into the distance when the heath is so close ... great original inland dune landscape with heather wherever the eye is looking. In the spring and the flowering time, we must definitely here again. As you can certainly marvel at a diverse fauna. After all, partridges are supposed to breed here.

    The Sorgwohlder inland dunes at Owschlag are since 1936 a nature reserve along the Sorgeniederung. It extends from Sorgwohld in northeastern direction.
    The dunes were created in the late and late glacial periods about 12,000 years ago. A constant ice wind blew the sands off the erosion ridges, formed by meltwater that had eroded the Owl camp Sander in the Sorgetal, to form mighty dunes.
    Today one can assume that parts of the Sorgwohlder inland dunes had been almost free of vegetation since the Ice Age. Humans have grazed and plagued this landscape since about 1000 AD. fundamentally shaped. The farmers of the sandy areas used the soil removed by plague to sprinkle in the stables and to fertilize their unilaterally cultivated fields. By plaguing and removing the heather and other soil litter, nutrients were removed from the soil. As a result, the heath could always turn out of the hive and germinate its sun-loving seeds better.
    The Ochsenweg also had influence on the area. At Sorgwohld he crossed the concern. At such watering places extensive storage areas had to be available. The cattle have repeatedly stirred up the ground.
