The '''Lüneburg Heath''' [] is an extensive region of heath and farmland in the state of [[Lower Saxony]] which has become a popular holiday and excursion destination. It lies roughly between the cities of [[Hanover]], [[Hamburg]] and [[Wolfsburg]]. Historically it was where Montgomery received the German surrender at the end of the Second World War.
The area has very rural feel to it. Dense pine forests alternate with green meadows and cultivated fields with purple heath. Its leafy villages are clustered around ancient Lower Saxon farmhouses - typical of North Germany - with their vast thatched roofs sweeping down over red brick and timber-framed walls.
