The Brunsberg is an approximately 129 meters high elevation of the Lohberge, the southern part of the Black Mountains, on the northwest edge of the Lüneburg Heath.
From Brunsberg the view over adjacent heathlands to the south to the Wilseder mountain (169.2 m) and the Heide Park Soltau falls. Towards the southwest one sees the Johanneskirche in Tostedt. The view towards Hamburg is blocked by the Harburg Mountains, the northern part of the Black Mountains.
The eponymous name for the mountain is an incident in which two shepherds, Bruns and Harms, came to the idea of keeping the sheep out of boredom "once to play hanging" - which paid Bruns his life.

The Brunsberg with its proud 129 m above sea level is hardly suitable for record height. The great view of the unique heath on the other hand is record-breakingly beautiful! You should also treat yourself to a sunset. Or the visit to New Year's Eve. or a bike ride but also kite flying can be good here in the fall. The annual Brunsberglauf is also a great event for young and old; to run along or just to watch. The Brunsberg can be reached from all sides within 20 minutes.The Höllenschluchtweg also runs over the Brunsberg, is an exciting dry valley in the forest, which is ideal for a short hike from Brunsberg. Ideal also for scavenger hunts with children. Take a look at an overview map "worth seeing".On Father's Day, many young people meet here. Unfortunately, you leave a lot of trash. But then this will be disposed of by volunteers in the days after.
