On day 3 we first hike the missing section of stage 3 (Handeloh to Undeloh) from Wesel to Undeloh. It then goes on stage 4 from Undeloh to Niederhaverbeck. The entire tour runs through the "Lüneburger Heide" nature reserve (NSG LÜ 002), the largest and oldest nature reserve in Lower Saxony with 234 square kilometers.The hike from Wesel to Niederhaverbeck can also be summarized under one motto:"Full of heather bloom ..."The heather theme dominates the hike today like never before on the Heidschnuckenweg. We experience the diversity and beauty of the various heather areas. Combined with the fantastic panoramic views, we literally dive into the purple-colored sea and can't stop enjoying and indulging.But now to the actual tour:We start our hike today at the Hexenhaus Wesel, an old bakery that is now used as a wedding room. After almost a kilometer we come to the beautiful Wilseder Bach ponds. Only a few hundred meters later the forest opens up and we step out into the open and slightly undulating landscape of the Weseler Heide with its large heather areas.In Undeloh we look at the 800 year old stone church with its free-standing wooden bell tower.After we have left Undeloh on the way towards Niederhaverbeck, we dive again into wide heather areas. We cross the Radenbachtal and have a wonderful 360 ° heather panorama from Wilseder Berg (169.2 m the highest mountain in the North German lowlands).Highlights of "Stage 3 - Through the light jungle"- Natural wonder Weseler Heide with pastor ponds,- sandy paths between forest and heathlandHighlights of "Stage 4 - Zweiländeral and summit happiness"- Car-free nature reserve Lüneburg Heath with the largest heathland areas in Europe,- Radenbachtal with wild horses,- highest mountain of the Lüneburg Heath

Wonderful landscapes and beautiful pictures on the Heidschnuckenweg, you want to go straight away and experience it yourself!The stage descriptions are very helpful, the only thing I still miss is a note for the respective overnight stay, as a tip for your own accommodation search.Thank you, I wish you great experiences on the way!

I was inspired by your tour, so I had to take a nose full of Heide today. 😊Since the area is almost on the doorstep, I have already done stages 1-5, a piece near Soltau and part of stage 12 in individual day trips. The area around the Angelbecksteich is also beautiful!I'm really looking forward to your description of the sections that I don't know yet.I would also be interested in what Andreas wrote away. Have you all planned the overnight stays in advance or can you find accommodation spontaneously, depending on how far you come? I guess it could be difficult when the heather is in bloom, and especially this year.Have fun and great impressions on the way 🥾
@Andreas away and @Julie:First of all, many, many thanks for your very nice and detailed comments. It is fun and motivates us to keep going, but it also shows us what we can do even better.Now to the question of overnight stays:When we do tours like this, we always book the rooms for the entire tour in advance and make sure that the start and end points can be easily reached by public transport. The number of hotel changes is then primarily determined by the length of the stage and the public transport connection.In this Corona time, however, we run the tours differently. We don't travel to the start and end points by public transport, but by car (this is anything but optimal in terms of environmental protection, but health and safety take precedence here). At the same time, we try to keep the number of hotel changes as low as possible.We booked the following accommodations on our tour (although this is always a very personal topic):- Aachat Hotel in Buchholz i.d.N. [before day 1 and 2]- Heidehotel Rieckmann in Bispingen [before day 3 to 6]- Niemeyer's Romantik Posthotel in Müden (Örtze) [before day 7 to 9]Especially when the heather is in bloom, regardless of Corona, you should book at least half a year in advance, especially in the Lüneburg Heath.

👍And have fun on the further route!I managed stages 1-10 and on the weekend, if everything goes well, I will tackle the remaining stages.The booklet "Heidschnuckenweg" helped me a lot when looking for accommodation. There is very good information to be found there, including overnight accommodation.Have a look at: heidschnuckenweg.de or by phone: 04131-3093960
Dear Andreas, dear Vita, thank you very much for your tips 😊
