The heath areas around the Wilseder Berg are among the largest contiguous heaths in the north-western European Geest and belong to the 234 km2 Lueneburg Heath Nature Reserve. Founded in 1922, it is now one of the oldest nature reserves in Germany and is part of the European NATURA 2000 system of protected areas.
We have compiled photos of typical plants of the heath areas, the nutrient-poor grasslands, the heath and raised bogs, the fields and the pond bottoms.
The Verein Naturschutzpark e.V. was founded on the initiative of a group of dedicated people. Even after more than 100 years of tradition, the fate of the conservation and protection of the heath is based on the members of the association and numerous supporters and sponsors. Please help us!
