The Lüneburger Heide Nature Park is situated in northern Germany in the triangle created by Hamburg, Bremen and Hannover. The Park was the very first nature park in Germany and it remains one of the biggest and most popular.
You have the chance to experience a unique, untouched natural landscape: Dip your toes into the Lopausee lake near the town of Amelinghausen or take a journey through space on the “Planetenlehrpfad” learning trail in Handeloh.
The paved surface means that you can also explore the hiking trails with a wheelchair; some of the paths also offer tactile boundaries for the blind and partially-sighted. Coupled with the relatively flat terrain and plenty of places to take a break and sit down, this makes a trip here possible for anyone. For wheelchair users who want to leave the path and experience nature closer at hand, we offer “Joelettes” (hiking wheelchairs).
You can also access the nature park without your own vehicle by taking the Heide-Shuttle, before switching to a wheelchair-accessible horse-drawn carriage.
