    At the "Teufesbrücke" a new information sign is set up for the history of the Teufelsbrücke. It was built in 1893/94 and was long popularly called the "Black Bridge", originally the bridge was painted black. The "Lüneburger Beautification Association of 1887" was based on the initiative of the Royal Chief Forester Hermann Busse. Here in retirement in Lüneburg he had the idea to renaturate the Bockelsberg. The Bockelsberg was a sandpit with isolated pines. Fish ponds were created, reforested and the Devil's Bridge was built. Today's picture of the west side of the Ilmenau around the Bockelsberg is due to Hermann Busse and his founded club. There is also a legend about the birth of Bockelsberg.

    But why the bridge is now called Devil's Bridge, I have not found out yet.

    The Devil's Bridge is a crossing point in the Ilmenauaue. It is always worth a look to look down the Ilmenau on both sides. Also suitable as a rest stop.

    If you follow Düvelsbrooker Weg at the Ilmenau, which runs close to the course of the river, you will see a small bridge with a blue metal railing on the right after a few hundred meters. This bridge, romantically situated on the Ilemenau, is called the Devil's Bridge. At the Teufelsbrücke there is a bench that offers a beautiful, idyllic place for a short break.lueneburger-heide.de/natur/tour/14005/wanderweg-wilschenbruch-ilmenau.html
