Dry heathlands that are especially worthwhile visiting in summer, when Eurasian Nightjar sing and the heath blossoms
This heathland is home to several birds, herps and insects that are rare or can't be found anywhere else in Hamburg and its surroundings, most importantly Eurasian Nightjar, but also Woodcock, Wood Lark and Long-eared Owl. Its also possible to find Adder, Sand Lizards and darters among the blossoming heath (best in August)
If you come by car, you can park at the car park "Fischbektal".
If you come by subway, you take the line "S3" and step off in "Hamburg-Neugraben". After this you can walk/bike the 2 km through the residential area or make a detour via the nature reserve "Moorgürtel" in the north.
There are only few target species, almost all of them are found best in summer.
