Hiking, cycling, observing rare birds, butterflies and dragonflies, discovering the flowering heath - we are located in the middle of the nature and bird reserve Meißendorfer Teiche, where Heinz Sielmann already shot his first cinema film "Lied der Wildbahn". Look forward to a polyphonic morning concert in which reed warbler, lapwing and gadwall play first violin.
An impressive circular hiking trail starts directly from us through the most important pond area in Lower Saxony for nature conservation - "our" Meißendorf ponds and the bizarre swamp forests of the Meißendorfer ponds. From the lookout towers you can catch breathtaking views of the impressive landscape and rare species of birds, butterflies and dragonflies.
