Amelinghausen: Kronsberg Heath


Election of Kronsberg Heather Queen

Anyone visiting Kronsberg Heath should first know that the Heather Queen of Amelinghausen has been officially elected here since 1950 and it is therefore a historic place for the district of Amelinghausen. Jenny Elvers is the most famous of these Heather Queens from Amelinhausen.

Landscape around Kronsberg

For tourists, in addition to the coronation in August, the beautiful heathland landscape is especially interesting. In addition, here is the Heidschnucken stall, the winter quarters of the Amelinghausen Heidschnucken.


If you like walking, you should know that the two so-called premium hiking trails "Queens Trail" and "Sagenhafter-Hünen (fabled giants) Trail" lead through Kronsberg Heath. More information and corresponding maps are available at Amelinghausen Tourist Information.


The small part of Kronsberg Heath is located directly on the B 209, at the entrance to Amelinghausen, coming from Lüneburg. Thus, it is almost opposite Lopausee and can therefore be easily combined  with a trip around the lake.
