E1 European long-distance path

The E1 European is part of a European long-distance path network and runs from North Cape in Norway to Salerno in the south of Italy. The part of the E1, which runs through Lüneburg Heath Nature Park is identical in many sections to the route of the Heidschnucken Trail. As you hike the Heidschnucken Trail with the aim of experiencing many heathlands, you have the distant Mediterranean Sea in mind when you see a white St Andrews cross on a black ground marking the E1. Frequently, the courses of the E1 and Heidschnucken Trail combine into an attractive hiking route.
