The acknowledged resort of Tarp offers a variety of sights. You are on the trail of the „Ice-Age Giants“ who are disguised as big rocks in the Findlingsgarten, immobile for humans.
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.

Trainee wood sculptors from all over Germany created 64 owls, which can be discovered along the owl hiking path. The owl is incidentally the heraldic animal of the municipality of Tarp.

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“.
