Tips

  • Gabriele

    Through the Wittmoor, a nature reserve in the north of Hamburg, a dam leads an old conveyor belt through the middle of the moor. Half way there is the most beautiful photogenic view of the newly created bog lake of renatured bog.

    Whoever enters Wittmoor on dark autumn afternoons can grasp what makes the moor so unique in literature: its peculiar, rather morbid than vital landscape, its depressing silence, the cold dampness creeping through the clothes. And he will remember the legends and fairy tales or even some poems in which the moor set the stage for events that were as miraculous as they were terrible.
    In fact, the Wittmoor offers the most impressive picture of a former raised bog in Hamburg. Many individual plant remains can be seen on the tapping edges of the massive peat layers, which are up to three meters high.

    For the botanist or forestry scientist, the Wittmoor is a treasure trove for documenting the history of vegetation and forest since the last ice age, and for laypersons it is also an impressive illustration of the millennia-long history of the formation of this bog, which is a nature reserve on Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein surfaces .

    The Wittmoor nature reserve (Low German for white moor) is located in the north of Hamburg in the districts of Duvenstedt and Lemsahl-Mellingstedt.
    The high moor extends to Glashütte, a district of Norderstedt in Schleswig-Holstein.
    It was used for peat extraction until 1958, and has been a nature reserve since February 21, 1978.
    On the embankment of the old Lorenbahn a hiking trail leads through the renatured and dammed up moor.

    This moor also has its charm. In May the cotton grass with the white fruit can be admired. One could easily think that Wittmoor (white moor) got its name from the white fruit.

    Bult-Schlenken complexes, often also referred to as step complexes, are special surface forms in the central areas of rain bogs (rain bog width) and in intermediate bogs.
    Elevated crests of peat and peat moss (sphagnum) or brown moss (Amblystegiaceae) - so-called bulges - together with wet, partly water-filled depressions - so-called Schlenken - form a characteristic micro-relief.
    Depending on the moor water level and the nutrient conditions as well as the different site requirements of the plant species, the various zones have different plant formations in the smallest of spaces.
