Unwind with horse and carriage
Forest bathing in the nature park Südheide
Welcome to pure nature
Recreation - relaxation - unwind
If you really immerse yourself in the forest, you are doing something for your health - in Japan, forest bathing is considered medicine. The Japanese "Shinrin Yoku" means as much as "bathing in the forest air". Here we do not bathe in a body of water, but enjoy the various imposing trees, the wonderful shrubs, mosses, berries and more. Forest bathing has a wonderful effect on body, mind and soul. Just looking at all the greenery relaxes, relieves stress, lifts your spirits and leads to an inner balance.
The forest has a special atmosphere. Experience the freshness, coolness and pleasant humidity as well as the wonderful silence. Listen and experience the delicate sounds of the forest. The Naturpark Südheide offers countless paths for forest bathing, most of them with designated hiking trails. Forest bathing is a festival for your senses. You smell, hear and taste everything, in spring the young green, in summer the mild air, in autumn the dew and in winter the endless silence.
Experience the forest
Get out, get away. Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, away from the many obligations. Come to us for relaxing forest bathing in the Naturpark Südheide. Here you can completely unwind and unplug from your daily routine - we support you with many tips and suggestions. We have numerous maps and brochures ready for you and will tell you where it is especially beautiful. We are also happy to take you on a romantic ➜ carriage ride, the mobile version of forest bathing. You can't get any closer to nature.
At eye level with nature - paddling in Südheide
The blooming heather / die Heideblüte
A purple paradise
In August and September, large parts of the Naturpark Südheide turn into a purple sea. A wide variety of hikes and discovery tours await our guests. Dreamy landscapes with secluded paths offer an unimagined wealth of experiences. The heather, in German called “Heidekraut“ (Calluna vulgaris - broom heather), is endangered in its existence and was therefore chosen by the Loki Schmidt Foundation as flower of the year in 2019.
A place to relax and find peace can be found everywhere. However, the most beautiful is an individual carriage ride with our air-suspended wagonette.
If you want to experience the heath blossom, remember this rule of thumb: You can see the flowers from 08.08. till 09.09.
Rutting season of the stags
An autumn spectacle
Directly at the TraumzeitHof - at the edge of the forest in direct sight - the red deer are grazing. Today, a big twelve-headed deer and its herd are paying their respects. With the naked eye we can watch the animals from the house. At the time of the rut the roaring of the stags resounds over our pastures. On the right as well as on the left of the road the herds are standing. We also get to see cranes, white storks, deer, foxes and other wild animals up close. Not far away at the Aschauteichen live sea eagles, otters, egrets, black storks and many other rare animals. If you take your time, you can expect experiences in abundance. For those interested in deer rutting you can book an individual guide with us following the next button or sending us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
