Altes Land—diverse and beautiful!

Imagine, it is spring, the sun is shining, the air is clean and a balmy breeze is coming from the Elbe. You are walking through blooming orchards like through a sea of white and pink blossoms. You reach the dyke and observe the tubs cruising on the Elbe. You can already recognize the Port of Hamburg, the city is as near. Fresh air made you hungry, you stop at a coffee garden and enjoy a delicious slice of a fruit tarte, according to grandma’s recipe. It’s not only spring season when visitors from all over the world are attracted by Altes Land.

Even in cherry season in July when sun-blessed fruits, firm and red, are picked from the trees, Altes Land is made for a discovering tour by bike.
You are welcome to take a tour on the fruit farm yards, especially in spring, summer and autumn. Children discover the fruits growing on the trees and have fun in nature. In late summer when the apples are harvested, visitors swarm Altes Land to fully enjoy the fruit paradise.
Come and experience Altes Land, the biggest contiguous fruit growing area together with all its treasures!
