Tips

  • Andreas Platzl

    The Fischbeker Heide is a very popular destination for Hamburgers. This nature reserve and former forest area is located south of the Hanseatic city. When the common heather blooms in late summer, the landscape shines as if it was covered by a purple carpet. If you keep your eyes and ears open, you will discover the immense diversity of species and plants in this area.

    Beautiful path through the heathland. After each bend, a new view of the unique landscape opens up. Even though the heather blossom is over in the middle of October, the autumn color of grasses and trees has its own charm.

    With about 770 ha, the NSG Fischbeker Heide is the third largest nature reserve in Hamburg.

    "The typical extensive heathland with scattered 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.The spreading heather was in 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 heather and to a decimation of tree growth.

    In the Fischbeker heath, pine trees and birches have proliferated in contrast to the juniper of the Lüneburg Heath. "

    Also you should try the Heidschnuckenweg times to hike! I did the first six stages (110km) to Soltau at the beginning of November 2018. The weather was bomb! And hiking alone was great: the colors, the smells and the mood with the light! Terrific! 🥾🌞🍁

    This is my absolute favorite way in the Fischbeker Heide. It winds along the hills and after each bend you have a great view.

    The hilly Fischbeker Heide is located shortly after the start of the Heidschnuckenweg and already offers very beautiful views of the purple flowering heathland.

    The Fischbecker Heide is a very beautiful landscape with many tours within the area. The former military training area is a great area for the whole family.

    Inconspicuous and surprising: From this point in Fischbeker Heide you can actually look down on the other side of the Elbe at Blankenese.

    Enjoy the wonderful view over the glider pilot area in autumn. Red heather plants and great foliage colors.
    Unfortunately, gastronomically everything is further away.

    The beautiful terrain has a good profile - flat, hilly - whatever you're looking for. Short tours are just as interesting as very long ones; the FH is a nice start and finish point. Without a car, you can get there and away easily with the S-Bahn. Worth seeing in every season.
