    The Fischbeker Heide is a very popular destination of the hamburger. South of the Hanseatic city lies this nature reserve and former forest area. When the broom heath flowers in late summer, the landscape shines as if it were covered by a purple carpet. If you keep your eyes and ears open, you will discover the immense species and plant wealth of this area.

    With about 770 ha, the NSG Fischbeker Heide is the third largest nature reserve in Hamburg."The typical vast heathland with isolated trees is not original, it was created by human use Starting from the Stone Age and reaching its peak in the Middle Ages, the destruction of the original oak birch forests was carried out by clearing and grazing Discarded heath land was used as stable litter and after barn cleaning as fertilizer for the fields.Each sheep and goat farming and beekeeping were important sources of income.These forms of use led to a constantly rejuvenating heath and to a decimation of tree growth.In the Fischbeker heath, pine and birch trees have become very widespread as opposed to the juniper of the Lüneburg Heath.
