Behringen – a holiday resort at the boundary of the Heath
Ideal starting point for activities
Situated north of Bispingen between Lake Brunau and the Nature Reserve, Behringen is the ideal location for visitors of the Heath. This holiday resort attracts many guests every year.
Picturesque holiday resort with a lot of open spaces
In the middle of Behringen there is a well-groomed village green. Many awesome visitors’ attractions like the Nature Reserve, Lake Brunau, the Snow Dome, the Ralf Schumacher Kart & Bowl and many more are within a stone’s throw.
Ideal location for excursions
Behringen lies 3 km north of the main village Bispingen, and with almost 1000 inhabitants it is the second largest village of the municipality. Due to the direct access to the motorway (A7) and the Nature Reserve Lüneburg Heath on the doorstep, Behringen is an ideal starting point for a holiday in the Heath. The Snow-Dome Bispingen and the Ralf Schumacher Kart & Bowl are located in the industrial area just 2 km from Behringen.
Unwind at Lake Brunau
Lake Brunau in an idyllic forest setting lies about 300 m from the main road at the village entrance when coming from the A7. Fishing, swimming, boating, quad track, restaurant/café, walks round the lake. Next to the former schoolhouse in the village centre, there is a well-groomed village green with walks and seating areas.
Tours through the Heath
At the village exit towards Oberhaverbeck and adjacent to the car park at Haverbecker Straße, the Behringen Heath begins. Volunteers have cultivated this area carefully and that is why this area has developed into a particular beautiful heather area that is perfect for a stroll or the start of a long bicycle tour through spectacular heathland.
Restaurants and shops
In Behringen you will find outstanding restaurants, several hotels, guesthouses, holiday homes, riding stables, farmsteads and a bicycle rental. Book a tour through the Heath: either with one of the coachmen on site or at the tourist information office at the village centre. Behringen also offers some shopping facilities: there is the butcher’s shop ‘Landschlachterei Meyer’ which also sells bakery products, a farmer’s market, a souvenir shop, a petrol station, a hairdresser’s and some potteries.
