Criss-crossing through the countryside on 4.8 km of asphalted, little-used agricultural roads, you hike through a landscape shaped by agriculture. Short sections of the route are part of the popular Ochsenweg and the European Long Distance Path.
The Treeneland around Tarp, Oeversee and Sieverstedt offers a charming landscape, formed by the glaciers of the Ice Age. Moors, heaths, inland dunes, woods, meadows, lakes and the Treene invite you to go for a walk on one of the many circular routes. The pilgrimage route and the European Long Distance Path are suitable for extensive hikes with or without overnight accommodation.
heated water - early bathing possible from May
In Treeneland, pool-lovers can bathe and relax in the fresh air in two heated outdoor pools (in Tarp and in Sieverstedt). Whether you want to swim a few lengths sportily, splash around and slide or enjoy sunbathing on the generous lawns – the pools have more to offer than this. In Sieverstedt, there is among other things a beach volleyball field and in Tarp there is a 50 m sports pool.
73 stones – granite, gneiss, diabase, rapakivi...
steeped in legend - what really happened at the Poppostein?
Glacial erratics (Findlinge in German) are enormous stones that were brought to Treeneland long ago in the Ice Age by the glaciers. The most fantastic stone finds, beautiful and immovable, can be seen in the Findlingsgarten, which invites visitors to explore and provides worthwhile information on charts. The baptismal font of the Viking King Harald Blauzahn is to be found in Sieverstedt – the „Poppostein“.
From the 12th century
- both churches were at that time already on important long distance paths/pilgrimage routes
Find repose, peace and sanctuary – the old St. George Church in Oeversee once acted as a fortress church. On the tower, you can still see the arrow slits. But the altar and the vault paintings are also worth seeing. The St. Peter Church in Sieverstedt, built around 1100 in the Roman architectural style using boulders, is one of the oldest churches in the peninsula of Angeln. There is a lot to discover in this church.
