    On the Heidschuckenweg it goes from the south, it goes pretty gently on the Citron Mountain ... in the north, it is quite steep down on sandy paths which are attached to the edge, so you can also go well with the bike.

    Over the Citronenberg the old Hermannsburger army road leads to Celle, which represented an important traffic way for many centuries. The name Citronenberg comes from the Middle Ages when Crusaders and pilgrims from all over Europe moved to the Holy Land. It is said that one day a noble family came here, who came from the north and had a sick child with him. Since the child would not have survived the burdens of the difficult journey, the parents asked local fishermen to take care of them until they came back from the Holy Land. When the Crusaders returned three years later and received their now healthy daughter again, they should have given the foster parents a basket of lemons as a reward.

    Whether this oral tradition is based on facts is no longer verifiable. At the foot of the Citron Mountain, fish ponds were once in the past, and their traces are still detectable in the terrain today. On the topographical maps, the strange name appeared rather late, namely only in 1899.

    The lakes are hidden away from the path.

    Here you can fortify yourself again before going up the Citronenberg - in the past you probably had a nice view of a heather? But which is now overgrown with bushes. Still a nice place for a rest.

    Located next to the Heidschnuckenweg there is this bench with a view over a small heathland. Behind are the Wildecker ponds.
