An old boundary stone in the forest, a historical railway embankment through the moor, a former sheepfold on the heath – these are just three of more than 80 information points you can discover by the wayside in Bourtanger Moor Nature Park. They bear witness to the past, while also showing how the current natural and cultural landscapes between the Ems river and the German-Dutch border came about.
Each information point has a story to tell, as you will see on this page. Would you like to see what has become of the count's estate in the moor, where the sheep still graze on the heath, or how the former tank road has become a route into nature? You can plan your tour online and include the relevant information points.
