    The burial mounds on the Regte Heide originate from the Bronze Age (ca. 1750 BC). One burial mound has a ring wall with a dry ditch. Burial mounds were used as a burial ground. It is thought that these hills were used not only to give the dead a final resting place, but also for worship.
    The burial mounds in this nature reserve were first excavated in 1935 and then reconstructed. The garlands known from the excavations were repaired around 5 burial mounds.

    This beautiful nature reserve is a must for its
    Bronze Age burial mounds. In addition, this area is suitable for long family walks because of the alternation between cultural history and nature.
    This area consists of heather, swampy brook valleys and deciduous and coniferous forests.
