Nature reserve which is characterized by a diverse hilly landscape on the northern edge of Hildesheim.
The nature reserve Lange Dreisch und Osterberg, which is characterized by a diverse hilly landscape of limestone, marl, sandstone and loess, extends over a foothill of the Hildesheim highlands that extends far into the Börde landscape. It was used as a military exercise area until the end of 2007 and contains extensively used grassland, semi-arid limestone grassland, limestone spring areas, small bodies of water, heat-loving fringes and bushes as well as forest stands made up of oak, hornbeam, linden and ash trees on limestone and silicate rock.
The area is a good place to see migratory species like Ring Ouzel and Northern Wheatear and offers a variety of breeding species including Wryneck and Skylark.
Area only to be accessed by foot. There are countless paths to explore the area (see the map). Parking is possible on the road Am Mastberg. Click on the P in the map for directions to the parking spot.
