Tister Bauernmoor, Tiste

4.8
The Tiste Bauernmoor is an area of raised bog on the Lüneburg Heath in north Germany that was designated as a nature reserve on 2 May 2002. It has an area of 570ha and belongs, together with the Ekelmoor, Avensermoor and Everstofer Moor, to the large Ekelmoor moorland region that has a total area of 1220ha.LocationThe Tiste Bauernmoor lies near the village of Tiste from where it gets its name. Tiste is part of the collective municipality known as Samtgemeinde Sittensen in the district of Rotenburg in Lower Saxony. The moor is part of the Wümme Valley natural region.RenaturisationMuch of the moor was used for industrial peat-cutting. The northern part of the moor was converted to pasture, but is no longer farmed. In order to renaturalise it about a third of the nature reserve was re-flooded. The areas that were overgrown with Weymouth pines were cleared. These areas now form breeding grounds and staging areas for many species of bird, some of them rare. The nature reserve's terrain falls almost entirely within the European Union bird reserve of Sittensen Moor (Moore bei Sittensen). The district of Rotenburg (Wümme) acts as the local nature reserve authority.

  • Very nice and eventful way through the moor with different themed paths. At the end of the trail there are 2 observation towers where you can observe the most diverse bird species. We had the glow and were able to watch a brushing pair of cranes.

  • Tister Bauernmoor is a real natural idyll between Hamburg and Bremen-in the Hamburg metropolitan area. Here you can stay as a family very well for a day. There are various hiking trails and paths in the moor and also around it. On weekends and special dates, a cafe is also open, with homemade cakes and pies. In addition, on weekends or even on special dates (e.g. crane rides) you can take an old peat track to the moor. Adventure trail, lookout towers and relaxation areas (all free use) make the excursion even more exciting for the whole family-at all times of the year. The Tister Peasant Moor is one of my favourite places in the region.
