In Lower Saxony more than 10 natural landscapes are designated as nature parks.
In these areas, the flora and fauna are not the only focus. Nature parks are protected areas that invite people to explore, experience and get active. The link between people and nature is strong here. The motto is “protection through use”. In line with this, the nature parks are characterised by environmentally-friendly use of the land and by an extensive range of tourist services.
The options for visitors to Lower Saxony’s nature parks are therefore very diverse. Alongside experiences in the great outdoors, each region also has plenty of culture and history to discover.
Cycling across the heaths, pulling on your hiking boots in the Weser Uplands hills, a gentle stroll at Steinhuder Meer, understanding the history of the Earth at Geopark TERRA.vita, a trip on the Moorbahn railway and much more… the nature parks in Lower Saxony have plenty to offer.
