The romantic Heather Hollows of Borstel

Borstel – a little Heath village with an old and a new residential area

Borstel, the little village with its rolling landscape on the outskirts of Bispingen, offers visitors spectacular, clear views of the pristine Lüneburg Heath. From here you can enjoy long walks, the open view or the sunset.

At the edge of Borstel Switzerland

The residential area Neu-Borstel lies on the outskirts of Bispingen, the old farming village “Borstel in der Kuhle” in the Brunau valley at the edge of Borstel Switzerland about 1 km from Bispingen. 380 inhabitants live here in the immediate vicinity to the “Bispinger Heidepark” and the Borstel Hollows.

Picturesque rolling landscape
