A great, varied area with many rare plants and insects. Also one or other rare bird species can be found in the area. Therefore, please stay on the trails and the dogs must stay on a leash. It is better that way, because on the heathland there can also be some otters. And the dear cattle share in some areas the meadow with the hikers.
Since the area is quite extensive, it is easy to hike.Further nature information about the Höltigbaum can be found here:
The Höltigbaum is approximately equal parts in Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein. Together with the adjoining Stellmoor-Ahrensburger Tunneltal and the Stellmoorer Tunneltal it is a nationally significant, more than 1,000 hectares protected area. Here you can experience in places Galloways haut / fellnah without pasture fences in between and watch. A hike through this beautiful nature reserve I can absolutely recommend in every season.
