Ammerland Route

160 km through Rhododendron and Embankment-Hedges

This tour is suitable for: Touring

Starting in Bad Zwischenahn, the route clock-wise follows an attractive landscape with extensive fens and idyllic natural lakes. A tour full of superlatives.

Twenty-one information panels along the route point the way to distinctive features, such as the five ‘landscape windows’. These observation towers convey aspects of the history and nature of this landscape: Water, rhododendron, embankment hedges, brick stone churches, historical mills and thatched farm houses. Bad Zwischahn at the Zwischenahner Meer is an ideal point to start the tour. Here, you’ll find an open-air museum „Ammerländer Bauernhaus“ (farmhouse) and the „Park der Gärten“ (park of the gardens, area of the Landesgartenschau 2002) with more than 90 theme gardens.

The 160 km long route is signposted and marked with the following logo.
