The Lauenburg Lake District is located between Lübeck and Lauenburg. Thanks to its being a biotope and its biodiversity, it is one of Germany’s most important nature landscapes.

25 years after reunification, nature has healed the wounds caused by the Wall and now, even the scars are beginning to slowly disappear. The Lauenburg Lake District has become a centre for threatened species.

Animal film makers Christoph and Almut Hauschild present the natural wealth of Lauenburg’s lakes. After spending more than a year of shooting footage, they can now present exciting stories of hunting sea eagles, huge herds of deer and unusual cross-border “commuters.”

One example of just how sensitive this refuge has become is the sea eagle. After an absence of more than 13 years, the first osprey have returned to Schleswig-Holstein.
