A 2.3 km long hiking path runs once around the Fröruper Mountains with an idyllic valley in the middle. Hikers are rewarded for their efforts with a breathtaking view over the valley of the Ihlsee Strom from the high-up observation platform.
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.
Diversity of species
- sundew, wild orchids and crested newts, black woodpeckers & cranes
The Fröruper Mountains were shaped by the last Ice Age. But man has also left his mark here with extensive gravel mining. A varied woodland area has been created with cliffs and ravines, but also small moorland and heath areas. In the forest, you can get close to nature. Old, dead trees are allowed to lie where they fall and thus offer space for new life.
White Polled Heath and their lambs
The sheepfold offers shelter to the wandering flocks of the countryside of the Upper Treeneland for the lambing season in winter - in which many little lambs see the light of the world for the first time - and for quite a few nights during the rest of the year too. This is also a popular location for events. From Easter, the flock of White Polled Heath migrates through the nature reserve areas of the Treeneland.
Viewing platforms by the Sankelmarker See, in the Fröruper Mountains and in the Treenetal in Tarp offer a fantastic view of the region.
