    Purple blooming heather, juniper and heather sheep, but also deep forests, moors and streams characterize the landscape of the Lüneburg Heath. In August and September this area turns into a purple shimmering sea of flowers, but the region is also worth visiting at other times of the year.The Lüneburg Heath lies in the city triangle between Hamburg, Bremen and Hanover and extends from the Elbe in the northeast to the Aller in the southwest. The landscape gives the purple blooming plant its name, because heather means "desert plateau". And it's true: Surrounded by humid plains, the dry and sandy heathland rises. The ice age glaciers formed the area in northeast Lower Saxony: hills rise here and there - the highest of them is the Wilseder Berg at almost 170 meters. Although the landscape has existed for thousands of years, the heather as we know it today was only created through human cultivation - as a sea of flowers and pastures of heather sheep.More detailed information:hamburg.de/lueneburger-heide

    I chose October, the blossom was over, of course, but the landscape is still a dream

    Wonderful heathland, like from a picture book or according to the stories.

    ... not far from a main road, a detour on this path through the field is worthwhile.
