Nature Reserve Altendorfer Berg is a very popular place in Einbeck to go hiking or as viewpoint.
Altendorfer Berg is located in the east of the city of Einbeck, north-west of Volksen, in the north of Salzderhelden and west-south-west of Negenborn in the district of Northeim.
Nature reserve "Altendorfer Berg" covers an area of approx. 100 ha. 35 years ago (1985) it was only half the size of today's area.
On the mountain Altendorfer Berg you may find so-called limeturf high in biodiversity and of multiple structures, one of the richest limeturf areas in Lower Saxony, as well as important types of orchids. The mixture of juniper trees in different stages of growth that change with partial areas scarce on wood are the special characteristics of Altendorfer Berg. The area of the quarry and the slopes with junipers have a special importance for butterflies.
