Our family hotel Landhaus Averbeck is located in the middle of the Südheide Nature Park, the south-western part of the Lüneburg Heath. The beautiful landscape with its ten nature reserves covers a whole 480 square kilometres. An informative exhibition on the Südheide Nature Park can be found in the Nature Information Centre in Eschede. The Südheide and Lüneburg Heath nature parks offer many varied paths and trails for the whole family to discover.
Discovering the surroundings
Encounters with beautiful nature are simply part of a holiday in Lower Saxony. Cycling and circular tours take you to old heath villages and extensive fields, meadows and forests. A good network of cycle paths along the country roads guarantees that you can enjoy your excursion in a relaxed way.
It is even more comfortable to take a horse-drawn carriage through the beautiful landscape. On paddling trips you can get to know the fauna and flora of our beautiful heath waters in a very leisurely way and let our shuttle bring you back comfortably after an extensive tour.
We will be happy to advise you on planning your excursions and organise everything you need, for example when it comes to hiring the right boats, carriages.
