The “Hans-Pforte-Haus” in Niederhaverbeck attracts visitors with an exhibition about bees…

In the Nature Information House in Niederhaverbeck, the modern exhibition “Bee Worlds” is dedicated to the fascination of bees:

  • What is special about bees?
  • What is special about heath beekeepers?
  • What are the special features of wax and honey?
  • With which devices do beekeepers work today, with which did they work in the past at the time of heath farming?

These and many other questions are answered by the exhibition of the VNP Stiftung Naturschutzpark, which was funded by the project “Experience Nature” of the Lower Saxony Ministry for the Environment, Energy and Climate Protection and the European Regional Development Fund.

In our small sales area we offer a range of small items and useful things around the bee. These include honey soaps, Lindesa hand cream or honey candies.

Depending on the season, we also offer different kinds of honey, which we are supplied with by beekeepers from the nature reserve.
