Haltepunkt Natur: Binnendüne Quitzöbel

The world of the ant-lion

Brandenburg, “the German Reich's grit can” as it was snidely called earlier, does its name justice in this instance. The inland dune Quitzöbel with its knobby pine trees carries this cliché to the extreme while at the same time it offers an important biotope for many interesting species. Marvel at the masses of sand, the smell created when the sun hits the dune, and the big and small plants that thrive under these habitat conditions. The observation deck serves as a resting and picknick place.
