• Schmarbeck Heath

No trip to Lüneburg Heath would be complete without a visit to Schmarbeck Heath. The Wacholderwald (juniper forest) Schmarbeck is the perfect location for capturing the magnificent play of colours between the purple heath and the gnarled, dark green juniper bushes.

Photo tip: At sunrise, the juniper casts great shadows and the morning dew gleaming on the spiders’ webs and plants bestows a mystical aura on the ‘Teufelsheide’ (Devil’s Heath). The heath is in full bloom between August and September.
