Up to the beginning of the 19th century, large expanses of North Germany were covered by heaths. Today, all that is left is Lüneburg Heath. Heathers cover the ground here all over the place. Amidst the heathland and heathers are pine forests, meadows and fields. And you're likely to catch a glimpse of the Heidschnucke sheep – which are local to this region. Pretty little towns and villages blend perfectly into the countryside. This unique landscape has inspired many poets and artists. You can explore this wonderful scenery on a variety of bike tours all around the heath town of Schneverdingen: Romantic bike tour on Lüneburg Heath!

Day 1: Individual arrival in Schneverdingen

In case you have pre-booked a rental bike, it will be handed over today. Also you will receive some important informations for your cycle holiday. Schneverdingen is an ideal place to start exploring Lüneburg Heath. The town itself also has a lot to discover. At the end of August, when Lüneburg Heath turns into a sea of purple heather, is when the Heather Bloom Festival takes place.

Day 2: Trip to Wilseder hill, approx. 30 km

Today's destination is Wilsede, a small village on the heath with about 50 inhabitants. The village, in the middle of the heath, can only be reached by foot, bike or horse and cart. Visit the heath museum, which tells you more about life as a farmer in 1850. Finally cycle through woods and heathland to Niederhaverbeck and then return via Haverbeeke Valley.

Day 3: Trip to Lünzen watermill and Fintel, approx. 35 km

Passing Walter-Peters-Park you cycle into a village called Zahrensen. From here you continue through Veerse valley to Lünzen. Lünzen has a watermill that dates back to the 13th century. And it was in operation until the end of the 1970s. One of the original two water wheels has been renovated and can be admired! The return trip to Schneverdingen takes you through the villages of Haswede and Osterwede.

Day 4: Schneverdingen – Soltau (train), Soltau – Schneverdingen, approx. 45 km

In the morning the train takes you on a 15-minute trip to the town of Soltau. Worthy of a visit here are the various churches, the town hall and also a toy museum, which shows exhibits from over four centuries. On the way back to Schneverdingen, you encounter the historic site of Wieheholz. Through the southern Osterheide and the woods around Böhnheide, your route takes you back to your starting point.

Day 5: Trip through the countryside of Höpen, approx. 30 km

The Aueweg leads you through fields and meadows via the Fintau river to Wintermoor. This is where you'll find the Höpen nature reserve. You will see the entire range of vegetation typical for Lüneburg Heath. And grazing in the nooks and crannies of this expansive heathland and behind the juniper bushes are the Lüneburg Heidschnucke sheep. There are 130 different species in the show garden alone!

Day 6: Individual departure or extended stay

After breakfast, your cycle tour in Lüneburg Heath comes to an end it's time to depart.
