Beautiful nature view... the Lüneburg Heath is a unique place of natural beauty.... home to the wonderful moorland sheep, fields of heather and other wildflowers... it has the largest connected heathland areas in Central Europe... popular holiday and excursion destination for cyclists and hikers particularly in August and September, when the heather is in bloom... .. with matching stamp (flower Saint John's Wort) can be found here and nice special postmark... Thanks a lot Dustin!!【ツ】➞My postcard and stamp week

The Lüneburg Heath is an extensive region of heath and farmland in the state of Lower Saxony in Northern Germany. It lies roughly between the cities of Hanover, Hamburg and Wolfsburg.

The area has very rural feel to it. Dense pine forests alternate with green meadows and cultivated fields with purple heath.

It is named after the town of Lüneburg. Most of the area is a nature reserve.
