Bike Touring Highlight
The Kaltenkirchener Heide is a former training ground of the German Armed Forces, which was declared to be the FFH area (fauna-flora-habitat area) after abandoning the military use in 2008 together with the "Heidkatener Heide". Since then, a natural paradise for rare and / or endangered plants and animals has developed.In June 2015, the Kaltenkirchener Heide with about 460 hectares was also declared a National Natural Heritage, which covers approximately 186,000 hectares nationwide. These are nationally important forest and open land areas with high biological diversity from the federal assets, which are developed and maintained for future generations.In the FFH area forests, rare dry and nutrient-poor grasslands, heaths and Borstgrasbestände occur. In particular, the open habitats harbor a highly specialized flora and fauna. Among them are up to 20 plant species of the Red List of Schleswig-Holstein.Source: Info flyer - FFH area Kaltenkirchener Heidekaltenkirchen.de/de-wAssets/docs/aktuelles/13_faltblatt_kaltenkirchener-heide_v02_webversion.pdf
