Lüneburger Heide has more wildlife and amusement parks than most holiday regions in Germany. The ten parks in the Lüneburger Heide make the region exceptionally popular and guarantee that there’s fun for the whole family.
With such a great choice of theme parks and centres to visit, the Lüneburger Heide is the perfect place for a great family holiday. The location of the parks is ideal: they are all situated centrally along the A7 motorway, which passes through the Lüneburger Heide. And what’s best: many of the attractions have roofs and can be enjoyed whatever the weather.
Heide-Park Resort Soltau
Germany’s largest amusement park, the Heide-Park Resort in Soltau, has a wealth of attractions, including Europe’s biggest wooden rollercoaster and 40 other rides and shows. For example, there’s the “Desert Race”, which accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3 seconds. A further adrenaline highlight is Germany’s first dive coaster, called the Kraken: strapped into your seat and with feet dangling, the ride plummets down vertically straight into the dark, open maw of the Kraken.
The Weltvogelpark Walsrode bird park is famous for its lush gardens and its brightly-coloured birds, some of which are extremely rare species. More than 4,000 birds and 700 species rub wings here. The beautifully landscaped 240,000m² park includes fully accessible themed houses, tropical halls, aviaries and a breath-taking live open-air flying show.
Experience the thrill of an African safari tour at the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen. Many exciting adventures await you in the giant open-air animal, water, monkey and amusement park.

Two superb attractions await you in Bispingen. First, there’s Ralf Schumacher’s giant Kart & Bowl Center. Sit behind the wheel of a go-cart, race around the indoor and outdoor tracks and soak up the thrill of Formula One racing with friends and family.
