Easy to reach
Because of being near to the Nature Park Lüneburg Heath, the motorway A7 and the numerous Heath attractions, Hützel is a popular starting point for holidays, hikes and Heath experiences. You can easily reach the Heath village Hützel near Bispingen by the motorway A7 or the Bundesstraße 212 (A-road). The Campsite Hützel is located directly at the Lake Opal.
Typical rural architecture
The old Heath village with its typical rural architecture became important in the past because kieselgur was mined here. Nature lovers will enjoy the pristine, green-golden forest with its rare wildlife in the protected area ‘Söhlbruch’ at the headwaters of the Wittenbeck. Also the Luhe Valley holds a unique charme and invites you to long walks.
Hiking in the Raubkammer Forest
Next to Hützel there is a vast forest with plenty of hiking trails. The name ‘Raubkammer’ derives from the robber-knights who used to haunt the area.
