Elbe Region


The Elbe Floodplains and the Winsener Elbe Marsch are a unique natural phenomenon. Here nature can shape an entire landscape. The Elbe regularly floods meadows and forests and has created a unique meadow landscape over time.

This wide, beautiful and calm river landscape is an ideal recreation area that can be experienced by bike or on foot.
