The resort town "Hoesseringen" is the tourism capital of Suderburg Land. It is idyllically situated in an end moraine landscape defined by the last Ice Age and is home to 600 inhabitants. Seemingly endless woodlands lie on Hoesseringen’s borders and the Hardau, a small stream from the heath, winds its way through the green valley meadows. Idyll and nature play BIG roles here, but there are also many other excursion destinations in Suderburg Land that are definitely worth a visit.
The holiday region "Suderburg Land" lies to the south-west of the Uelzen heath region on the outskirts of Suedheide heath. Here you’ll find attractive excursion destinations in beautiful scenery and romantic heath villages.
The Museum Village Hoesseringen features 27 buildings set up as a typical scattered village. Chickens cackle, geese and ducks quack on the village pond and sheep graze on the heath. On activity days you can watch the smith at work in his forge, hear the sound of the reciprocating saw, see the steam engine from 1913 drive the thresher and watch the sewing and weaving work in the blue barn. There are also permanent exhibitions on the country life of the past 400 years.
Lake Hardausee has a surface area of some 80,000 m² and is ideal for swimming, paddle-boating, fishing and relaxing in the sunshine.
