Bog and Moraine
Esterwegen in the 21st Century
Since 1973, the villages of Esterwegen, Bockhorst, Breddenberg, Hilkenbrook and Surwold are joined in and together form the community of Nordhümmling. As an officially certified recreational area, Esterwegen offers active vacations for hiking and bicycling but also for leisure and relaxation. Erika Lake is an attractive destination with its youth camping sites for over 400 people and many camper van sites. The mini-golf course, skateboarding park, adventure playground and barbequing site ensures that kids and teenagers never get bored. Those who enjoy something a little unique will enjoy the archery range. The new MoorInfoPath and the excursion destination of Esterweger Dose enable you to experience and become fascinated by this habitat. The close proximity to Papenburg enables convenient regional day trips and lets you experience fen cultivation up close.
