Nature within your reachMaasholm Nature Experience Centre
The educational trail to the Nature Experience Centre
When the aim is the way
It's not very easy to reach the Natural Experience Centre since getting there means to walk the two-kilometre-long educational trail which is part of the Centre to the building itself.
Located between pastures and meadows it bears information about the last Ice Age, nature reserve Oehe-Schleimünde and local bird life. In addition, you learn exciting things about the Vikings and the dramatic storm flood of 1872.
If you need a break, the Hegeberg which you pass on your way rewards you with unspoiledviews across the Schlei to the Danish islands.
The outside area of the Nature Experience Centre is a nature experience in itself as the aim of this centre is for you to encounter nature on a new level. The tunnel-formed willow path, the erratic garden, the fruit orchard and the wind and water coastal playground - everything here invites you to watch, taste and try out using all your senses.
Exhibitions at the Maasholm Nature Experience Centre
Encounter nature from within
With its six exhibition halls, the Nature Experience Centre is definitely worth a visit not only from the outside but also from inside. The topics of the rooms are "World and Sea", "Schlei", "Baltic Sea" and "Coastal Life" with a small lecture theatre and a coastal workshop offering hands-on activities such as amber grinding. Microscopes are available to watch nature even closer.
The exhibitions inform about the Schlei and Baltic Sea, climatic influences and traditional fishery with text plates, pictures and models. Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted directly at the Nature Experience Centre to ensure nature's presentation of the Schlei and Baltic Sea in such an exciting way for days to come.
