Looking at big liners and cycling through the fruit paradise

10,000 hectares of cultivation area, 17,000,000 fruit trees, 50,000 cyclists in the season: these are three figures from the Alte Land, Europe's largest contiguous fruit-growing area. Those who want to unwind can imagine, for example, that it is spring, the sun is shining, the air is clear and a balmy breeze is blowing from the Elbe. The guest walks through blossoming fruit fields, as if through a sea of white and pink blossoms. He reaches the dyke and watches the boats on the Elbe. The port of Hamburg can already be seen, so close is the big city. Hungry from the fresh air, he stops at a coffee garden and enjoys a piece of delicious fruit cake made to grandmother's recipe.

But it is not only in spring that the Alte Land attracts visitors from all over the world - the cherry season in July, when the sun-drenched fruits are picked plump and red, is also the perfect time to discover the Alte Land, for example by bike. Especially in spring, summer and autumn, the fruit farms invite you to take a tour of the farm. Children discover the fruits directly on the tree and have fun in nature. In late summer, when the apples are harvested, guests flock to the Alte Land to really enjoy the fruit paradise.

Always straight ahead and only sometimes the wind from the front - over 1000 kilometres of main and tributary dikes invite you to cycle. Along the cycle paths you will find enchanting old half-timbered houses nestled in the landscape, and all kinds of farm shops and cafés along the way will tempt you. The partly paved, partly asphalted dyke defence road behind the Elbe dyke leads from Bassenfleth to Cranz with a view of the stream, undisturbed by road traffic are cyclists and skaters. The cycle paths along the roads and also the farm tracks along the plantations are well developed. And last but not least, the popular Elbe Cycle Path and the longest cycle path in the world, the North Sea Coast Cycle Path, run through the Alte Land. The Elbe cycle touring bus, newly introduced in 2009, is also particularly suitable for longer tours. The connection between Horneburg via Jork and then along the Elbe up to Balje can now also be cycled in stages. If you are tired, simply put your bike on the trailer at the next stop and get on the bus. The bus will then take you further along the route to the next point you are heading for.

If you are on holiday in the Alte Land, you must not miss a visit to the maritime Hanseatic towns of Stade and Buxtehude. They have preserved their historical face. The centrepiece of Stade's over 1000-year-old old town is the Hanseatic harbour, which has been preserved in its old form to this day. The Hanseatic and fairytale town of Buxtehude is surrounded by water and its historic old town is still bordered by an old fortress moat. Tour guides and night watchmen lead visitors through the romantic and fairytale-like old town and tell the tale of the race between the hare and the hedgehog.

The tributaries of the Oste, Este, Lühe and Schwinge rivers are ideal for paddling, rowing or motor boating. For sailing, head out onto the Elbe. The Lühe jetty is a popular meeting place for all those who love the view of the Elbe. From there you can take the ferry across the river towards Hamburg. At the mouth of the Schwinge into the Elbe lies Stadersand with a magnificent panorama over the Elbe. A detour to Hollern-Twielenfleth is worthwhile: the district of Twielenfleth is known for the "Venti Amica" mill (Latin for "friend of the wind"), the St. Marien church and the old lighthouse, while Hollern is famous for its St. Mauritius church with organ by Arp Schnitger (1690).

That the Alte Land is something special is clear from many things. Whether Old Country filigree ornaments, ornate doors, half-timbered stonework or bridal doors. All this can only be found in the Alte Land. Holidays in the Alte Land have their own rhythm, which holidaymakers can combine very well with their own if they have booked into one of the numerous holiday flats. Some emphasise their excellent location: "950 metres to the water".
