    The 10,000-year-old Himmelmoor is a raised bog in Quickborn. It was once the largest bog in Schleswig-Holstein and was supposed to be completely abandoned (after a contract of 1919). In the meantime, however, one has thought better of it and begun with the rewetting of the bog. The peat extraction is to end in 2020. Then the Himmelmoor should be designated as a nature reserve. (Source: Wikipedia) For the local recreation, it has a great importance. There is a riding trail around the moorland, trails of various lengths and the original peat railroad, with which you can make trips through the moor. This Torfbahn is maintained and maintained by the working group Torfbahn Himmelmoor e.V .. Furthermore, the Förderverein Himmelmoor is committed to preserving the ecological heritage of the moor. Recently, a nature-friend Moorlehrpfad was opened by the moor. This includes 17 experience stations, 23 information boards and a large shelter. All this was planned and implemented voluntarily under the leadership of NaturFreunde Pinneberg. Who looks at it, how great that succeeded, can only say: Respect. Very impressive.

    A hike in the sky moor decelerates. Here you can relax and unwind on the moor path, learn interesting facts about flora and fauna and become active at the adventure stations themselves. Go there!

    A heavenly moor!
    There was less going on Feb. 19 than I had feared
    The bridge described above is being rebuilt, but pedestrians can pass through a makeshift bridge 🤗

    Especially in the morning, when the sun is still shallow, you have a great view of the artificial lake landscape, which was created by the peat extraction.

    The Himmelmoor is unique and worth a visit in every season. It is constantly expanding through new path. Display boards explain the origin, the flora and fauna. It's just very relaxing to walk through the moor.

    An absolutely beautiful moor!
    But as intact it really can not be called anymore!

    This bog will be actively mined by the end of the year.

    At the moment (October 2018) the Pinneberg bridge leading from Quickborn to the peat plant is closed (also for pedestrians). Alternatively, drive through the district of Rentzel through Schulstraße or park in Quickborn in front of the small animal practice and walk over the "blue" bridge.

    Unfortunately half destroyed. Thought as an aid for the individual search for motifs for photographers.

    By means of a funnel anyone can listen to the sounds of the moors.

    Wooden picture frame by which anyone can photograph the moor. Another great idea.
