    The Wittmoor is a paradise for walkers and nature lovers. Moor, heath, forests and pastures are well developed with hiking trails. An insider tip all year round. Only after long rain not recommended.
    The nature reserve Wittmoor is the last high moor in the north of Hamburg. It was created in thousands of years in a depression of glacial moraines in a side valley of the Alster and was abgetorft to 1958 large area. Part of the bog is preserved. In 1978 Wittmoor was protected. Drainage ditches have been closed again and meanwhile two moor lakes have sprung up in the middle of the deforested area. The deforested areas are now soaked again and the dying birches in the area are signs of new moorland formation.
    The nature reserve Wittmoor is an insider tip all year round. There you can walk in peace and enjoy nature. Only after long rains you should avoid the area. Then you do not get dry feet over the paths. Meals should bring the hiker himself. Along the way there are no cafes or restaurants for a stopover. A picnic in the moor sounds but also tempting.

    Moore are just exciting and always a bit scary. So too.

    When twilight falls you can observe many deer and other animals in the Wittmoor. The Wittmoor is also interesting for the botanist or forest scientist. It is a treasure trove for the documentation of the vegetation and forest history since the last ice age. And for hikers or cyclists, it is a place of rest and relaxation.

    Please be careful when cycling: the paths are mostly not very wide and so cyclists and pedestrians can easily get into each other.
