When the landscape turns into a purple carpet of flowers, interspersed only by the lush green of the gnarled junipers and the silvery white of the birches, it's that time again. In August and September the heath blooms and experiences its fifth season. The fantastically beautiful landscape of millions of purple blossoms, picturesque brooks, moors and juniper bushes exudes a very special charm. Spend wonderful vacations in one of the largest nature parks in northern Germany.
