Day trip to Lüneburger Heide

For the coming 2-3 weekends we recommend a daytrip to Lüneburger Heide which is in full violett blossom these days

Oberhaverbeck – Wilsede
20 minutes by bike
By foot a good hour

When the weather is beautiful (and lets hope that the coming holidays will provide for some late warm sunrays) the trip to one of the most famous tourist attractions around Hamburg is a real treat for eyes and soul! There are many possible starting points, but we chose Overhaverbeck (about 45 minutes drive from Hamburg) to start, parked there, and walked amidst of the rolling hills – following well signed hikings trails to the car-free ancient farmer village Wilsede. You can also rent some bikes at Stimbekhof (call them before going – or bring your own bikes along). The Stimbekhof underwent a whole relaunch and a night over looks really promising. Wilsede is a museum village with two nice restaurants. I recommend to order the special lamb dish “Heidschnucke”, enjoy a hot chocolate and tea on their beautiful terasse with a great view, and then cylce back. Before going home make a stop at Overhaverbeck at Cafe Bockelmann and ate gigantic, most delicious cakes!
