For thousands of years, Lüneburg Heath has been characterized by the economics of the people. Thus, most of the "natural wonders" featured here are also influenced by the cultural history of the region and many "natural sights" are the result of man's influence. Glacial erratic boulders were combined to form megalithic tombs, trees were cut for firewood, heather areas kept open, and wetlands were cultivated.
