Section F approx. 75 km from Hitzacker (Elbe) to Wittenberge
In the Hitzacker-Wittenberge section, the nature and history of the Elbe Floodplain UNESCO Biosphere Reserve offer an interesting stretch of sights along the Elberadweg. The peace and quiet between towns, and the variety of wildlife, such as storks, cranes, beavers and sheep, remind you of how ancient this landscape is. Swarms of birds dominate the scene in spring and autumn.
- Hitzacker (Elbe) is a real pearl on the Elbe in the Elbe Floodplain Biosphere Reserve with its half-timbered town centre, the old customs house, plenty of boat trips, two museums and vineyards with breathtaking views.
- The half-timbered town of Lenzen has plenty to offer nature lovers.
- The Dömitz fortress, the Old Town, the harbour with its panoramic hotel and jetty for excursions make Dömitz a true attraction on the Elbe.
- With its lake, Wendland spa and Gartower Forest, Gartow is an absolute highlight of nature along the Elberadweg.
- Schnackenburg - Lower Saxony’s smallest city will greet you with its Grenzlandmuseum (Border Museum) and its ferry stop in the Lower Saxony Elbe Floodplain Biosphere Reserve.
- Wahrenberg is also called “stork village” because of the high population of storks.
- Fresh, quiet, happy and free - where, if not in Lanz?
- A windmill juts upwards like a living museum in Wanzer.
- The borders of old disappear at the Stresow monument and meeting place in Aulosen.
- One of the republic’s best-known villages is located directly on the Elberadweg, even if its headline-worthy sights are hardly visible from the cycle path itself.
- The Damnatz Elbbogen is a lovely, relaxing place to experience the Elbe and simply let your mind wander.
- Cumlosen ist ein kleines Städtchen in der Prignitz am Elberadweg und einen Zwischenstop Wert.
- Wittenberge is the gate to the Elbe floodplain
