Haltepunkt Natur: Kopfweiden Hinzdorf

Cultural assets in the wetlands

The striking pollard willows that flank the village church in Hinzdorf and can also be found at many other places in the Elbe wetlands, are witnesses of a thousand year old tradition. This craft isn't only important for humans; pollard willows offer diverse habitats for birds, small mammals and insects, and should therefore be preserved. Visit this nature stop and learn more about this nearly obsolete economic branch of the region.
