Hösseringen ( Low German Hössen ) is a district of the municipality Suderburg in the combined municipality Suderburg and is located in the southwestern district of Uelzen , Lower Saxony . The place was first mentioned in 1247 and incorporated into Suderburg on July 1, 1972.


Hösseringen is located between Hamburg and Hanover in the Lüneburg Heath . The place is characterized by agriculture, the landscape of the Hohe Heide and the surrounding extensive forest areas, which extend in the southwest to Eschede .

The place is criss-crossed by terminal moraines from the penultimate Ice Age and is accordingly located on several hills or small chains of hills. Approx. The Hardau rises 2 km south-east of the town center and flows into the Gerdau after its further course through the Hardautal between Holxen and Holdenstedt . After their retreat, the glaciers left behind deposits of marl and diatomite, all of which were exploited.

Culture and sights

  • The place is known nationwide due to the approximately ten hectare area of ​​the museum village Hösseringen . The museum village is also the starting point of the Schooten Forest History Trail, which leads through the forest area of ​​the same name and describes the changes in agriculture and forestry in the Lüneburg Heath at ten stations.
  • In the immediate vicinity of the museum village is the Landtag Square, which was the meeting place of the Landtag of the Principality of Lüneburg in the early modern period from 1532 to 1652 . The Lüneburg knighthood erected a memorial stone here in 1902. In the 1930s the square was redesigned to its present form. Since then it has consisted of numerous boulders from the places and with the place names of the then Uelzen district.
  • Hösseringen is the starting point for the 26-kilometer water adventure trail that stretches to Uelzen . Stations of this path are the water treading facility at the village pond and the artificially created Hardausee , near which there is also a camping and barbecue area.
  • Hösseringen observation tower, a 37.5 m high clinker brick tower between Hösseringen and Räber, built in 2003 as a carrier for mobile radio transmission antennas, with an observation platform at a height of around 32 m .
  • Located on the Lower Saxony Mill Road, there is also a water mill close to the town center , but it is no longer in operation.
  • Since opening in 1957, the former Waldhotel and Café Bötzelberg has helped shape the Hardautal holiday region in Hösseringen. In 2003 it was converted into a beauty farm.
