Foxes or cranes also cross your paths here. In this fascinating moorland with its rich flora and fauna, the photos for the next self-made calendar are quickly collected. In autumn, starting in September, there is a real highlight in the north of Hamburg: roaring deer in the Duvenstedter Brook.

BrookHus nature reserves Duvenstedter Brook and Wohldorfer Forest
The BrookHus provides information about the nature reserves Duvenstedter Brook and Wohldorfer Wald, about the different habitats and the animals and plants found there.

Diekbek & Rodenbek Spring Valley nature reserves
Separated only by a road, march on to the Diekbek nature reserve with its floodplain forests and meadows. Otters and kingfishers retreat to this refuge. To the north, Wohldorfer Wald is bordered by the hills and valleys of the Rodenbek Quellental nature reserve. Many paths, including the Alsterwanderweg, lead through the valley. The nature reserve got its name from its Rodenbek spring. But the Bredenbek and Mühlenbek also flow into the Alster here. After a wonderful walk in the fresh air, the Gasthof Quellental at the Rodenbek pond invites you to refresh yourself.
