Half-day tour: Heide Erlebnispfad (Heath adventure trail) Schillohsberg in Unterlüß (2.2 km, circular trail)
The Heide Erlebnispfad Schillohsberg provides interesting information on the unique natural landscape of the heath, and is therefore particularly recommended for families with children. A total of six stations await the hiker on the 2.2 km long circular hiking trail, providing insights into the history of this millennia-old cultural landscape.
The landscape history of the heath from the end of the ice age to the time of the heath farmer economy, when the heath areas in many places still reached to the horizon, is the subject of one station. The "poor pale face" that characterises the heath soil, the efficient dung beetle, the sculptors of the heath landscape and the drifting sand are further subjects of this route.
The Heide Erlebnispfad leads through the heath area and the adjoining forest. The route is signposted with a pictogram showing a dung beetle.
