Experience Tours in the Elbe Region

Kick scooter safari


You can become an explorer in the joint community of Scharnebeck. Combine the trendy sports equipment scooter with a "bird's eye equipment" and venture into the varied and species-rich nature of the Lüneburg Elbe valley or explore the north-eastern edge of the Lüneburg Heath. The scooter takes you to the most beautiful places and with the help of the binoculars you can touch our natural beauties right in front of your lens. You can identify countless species of birds on your tour with the help of the appropriate bird book and then there is also the "Discovery Diploma" waiting for you as a souvenir to take home! You can go on a scooter safari on your own or take part in guided tours.

Guided tours of the Scharnebeck ship lift


Experience the largest boat lift in Germany in a fun way!


Jörg Ahlfeld grew up in the shipping town of Lauenburg / Elbe

discovered his enthusiasm for the river and its ships early on. As a cabin boy, he gained his first experience on the

Inland tanker "Wilhelm Burmester" on the waterways.

The path often led to the Elbe Lateral Canal and the Scharnebeck ship lift. Today he passionately offers guided tours at the lift.

The tours start at the parking lot at the ship lift and last about 1 hour.

Travelling by Railway Handcar


On a disused railway line one can get around by an almost forgotten means of transport. The draisine handcar is operated via hand lever and pedal drive. Through meadows and woods, past storks, and with a lot of fun, you can drive a good three hours from Bleckede to Alt Garge. Here on some days you can experience the best rock bands in the Plan1 event venue.

With the Heide-Elbe-Express/Bleckeder Light Railway on Old Rail Tracks

All aboard the Heide-Express/the Bleckeder light railway. It runs from Lüneburg to Bleckede, to Scharnebeck or to Lüneburg Heath. The Verkehrsfreunde Lüneburg working group has leased the Bleckeder Kleinbahn railway line from the Osthannoversche Eisenbahnen for 50 years. Today it "wanders" through the countryside on the rails. At the different stops there are many possibilities to get to know the attractions of the surroundings.
