Olympic gold medallist, world champion and athletic star Heike Drechsler is the force behind a new fitness concept in nature: Green Sports
A circular trail over 8 km leads all fitness enthusiasts through the nature park Lüneburg Heath while visiting 10 stations. People can run, walk or stroll the track, depending on the person performance ability. It starts at the church in the dreamy heath village Egestorf and runs through the nature reserve with large heath areas and shady forests.
A start in Sudermühlen is also possible as the track is very close.
Apart from tree trunks, benches and signposts, the wooden bridge rails of the heath stream ‘Schmale Aue’ (Sudermühlen) is also a station. Cool down your feet in the clear water of the stream, observe rare animals and enjoy the fresh forest air.
Implementation: There is a QR code at each station which can be scanned with a mobile phone or tablet. A video opens immediately in which the coach will explain a certain type of exercise for this object of the green sports station.
The paths all have signs and are well built. Anyone can follow the track, no prior knowledge or experience is necessary.
