The landscape is dominated by heather, moor and birch woods (ideal for hiking); the "highest" elevation is the "Wilseder Berg" (Mount Wilsede) - a practical joke, since it is only 170 m "high".
The hiking paths to the "Totengrund" or the "Pietzmoor" are also very worthwhile. The small Heide-Museum in Wilsede (only accessible by foot or bycicle) shows how the local farmers coped with the poor soil in the olden days.

Many historic cities are only a short driving distance from here, like Lüneburg, Celle etc. Also worth seeing: The bird zoo (Vogelpark) in Walsrode.
