VNP events

You are invited to the various events of the VNP:

  • See the work of the VNP with your own eyes on our traditional summer or winter walks in the Lüneburg Heath nature reserve, led by VNP staff.
  • Be enchanted by classical concerts at the “Emhoff” in Wilsede.
  • At the biennial farm festival at the Tütsberg landscape conservation farm, you can talk to the VNP staff in person, find out about the VNP’s work, and enjoy a varied programme of events with a Heidschnucken bratwurst.

And don’t forget:

Your contributions and donations help to preserve the habitats of endangered animal and plant species, as well as the unique landscape of the Lüneburg Heath nature reserve for future generations.
