In the south the tour runs on solid paths along grazed nature reserve areas. In the forest it becomes clear that water is also a characteristic element of this landscape. Between the Jordhuimoor in the southeast and the Budschimoor in the north one can choose between a longer route (4.8 km) along a renatured moor or a shorter one (3.9 km) through old beech-tree stocks.
The nature conservation association "Obere Treenelandschaft" organises visits to the sheepfold. The choice of fodder, the properties of the sheepfold and the tending of the sheep are explained.
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.
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.
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.
Viewing platforms by the Sankelmarker See, in the Fröruper Mountains and in the Treenetal in Tarp offer a fantastic view of the region.
