That is "Heidenglück"

Duhner Heath

The Duhner Heide is part of the "Lower Saxony mudflat Sea" National Park and is specially protected as a quiet zone. The special and scenic beauty of this area is that it has a natural sequence from mudflats to salt marshes to forest and heath. It is therefore very worthwhile to go on a discovery tour here.

Depending on your physical condition and curiosity, the tour lasts one to one and a half hours.

Because it is predominantly unpaved, mostly even sandy and uneven sections, the trail is only suitable for pedestrians.
