The Tiste Bauernmoor is an area of raised bog on the Lüneburg Heath in north Germany that was designated as a nature reserve on 2 May 2002. It has an area of 570ha and belongs, together with the Ekelmoor, Avensermoor and Everstofer Moor, to the large Ekelmoor moorland region that has a total area of 1220ha.LocationThe Tiste Bauernmoor lies near the village of Tiste from where it gets its name. Tiste is part of the collective municipality known as Samtgemeinde Sittensen in the district of Rotenburg in Lower Saxony. The moor is part of the Wümme Valley natural region.RenaturisationMuch of the moor was used for industrial peat-cutting. The northern part of the moor was converted to pasture, but is no longer farmed. In order to renaturalise it about a third of the nature reserve was re-flooded. The areas that were overgrown with Weymouth pines were cleared. These areas now form breeding grounds and staging areas for many species of bird, some of them rare. The nature reserve's terrain falls almost entirely within the European Union bird reserve of Sittensen Moor (Moore bei Sittensen). The district of Rotenburg (Wümme) acts as the local nature reserve authority.
