    Wonderful open plateau with colorful heather in August. At any other time of the year the landscape is also great.

    August + September are the best time to visit as the summer heather then blooms. Otherwise, it is always worth a visit, because nature here is simply beautifully quiet!

    The NSG Neuer Hagen is worthwhile in every season. The nearby Clemensberg with its summit cross and quarry should also be visited.

    When the heather blooms on the Willinger Hochheide in August, you will find a wonderful purple carpet there. Hiking there is an absolute highlight.

    "... 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 a nature reserve 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. ... "

    If you are lucky, you may come across a herd of sheep and goats on your tour of the Hochheide, which are responsible for maintaining the landscape of the Hochheide. You could watch the animals for hours. 🤗
