Only 20 km away from the state capital of Hannover, the range of hills in the city’s back garden, the Deister, invites local inhabitants and visitors alike to enjoy peace and recreation in its magnificient forests of beech and pine.
Here you can breathe deeply and enjoy the fresh woodland air. This wooded recreation area has ideal facilities for cyclists and ramblers. And there is plenty of variety.
The Bison Reserve (Wisentgehege) in Springe is a favourite destination for animal lovers; while those who like to take care of their health pay a visit to the health resort of Bad Nenndorf, and the Deister Open-Air Theatre in Barsinghausen plays every summer in the middle of the forest against a beautiful natural backcloth.
