The Hahnheide is an approx. 1,500 ha large, beautiful nature reserve near Trittau in Stormarnschen Switzerland. Here you will find wonderful old tree populations of pine, beech and spruce.
The forest area is overthrown by the "Long Otto".
From this lookout tower you have an impressive view over Stormarnsche Switzerland. The 27 meter high tower is located on the 99 meter high “Großer Hahnheider Berg”. With good visibility, you can even spot the Hamburg TV tower in the distance.
The long Otto has been a very beautiful lookout tower for decades - it was built in 1974 and rebuilt in 2001 with a height of 27m. I have known him since the end of the 1970s and I always enjoy coming here - the view is fantastic.

From the observation tower, you have a fantastic view over the hilly landscape of the Hahnheide, as far as Holstein Switzerland. Even if the view is low due to fog or rain, it is worth the climb. Step by step you climb up the adjacent trees to finally break through their treetops. Welcome to the forest bathing.

The Hahnheider Berg is the largest in Stormarn. In fact, there are actually two mountains, the small and the large Hahnheider Berg. On the large Hahnheider Berg there is a lookout tower (Langer Otto), from which the surroundings can be admired. In fact, the small Hahnheider Berg is one meter higher than the big one.

The Hahnheide is a predominantly wooded and characterized by rolling hills and valleys part of the Stormarner Switzerland. From the observation tower one is rewarded with a clear view with a view to the Lübeck and Hamburg church tower. Curiously, the Kleine Hahnheider Berg is 100m higher than its "big brother".
