Tips

  • Burkhard

    Everything that can be said about the Großer Bullensee applies to the small Bullensee: The name of both lakes has nothing to do with cattle or the police. Wikipedia tells us that they can probably be derived from the Low German verb bullern, which means something like rumble or roar. From the time of superstition, the lakes could be associated with poltergeists or noisy swarms of ghosts. Swimming is prohibited in the small Bullensee.

  • The Kleine Bullensee was created towards the end of the last Ice Age as a relic of a glacier in the Wümmeniederung south of Rotenburg Wümme and north of Kirchwalsede. Half of the Bullensee lies in the municipal areas of the city of Rotenburg Wümme and the other half of Kirchwalsede.Due to the high acidity due to the boggy environment, no fish live in the two lakes (Großer and Kleiner Bullensee). The lakes and their surroundings are designated as a nature reserve and also known as a local recreation area in the greater Bremen / Rotenburg Wümme area.

  • The lake in the forest is of natural origin. Since the Kleine Bullensee is in the immediate vicinity of the Great and White Moor and the Great Bullensee, a trip here can be wonderfully combined with a hike through the moor and / or a walk around the large lake.Bathing in the lake and other water sports are prohibited on the water.

  • In contrast to the Großer Bullensee, the small Bullensee is not open for swimming. It is a sensitive place of retreat for water birds and insects and should be perceived as such. A real gem in the middle of the forest.

  • The circular hike was named Germany's most beautiful circular hike by the hiking magazine in August 2021. I also find the section around the moor and the Bullensee very beautiful, but the paths in the following places are much more attractive.

  • The Kleiner Bullensee is a nature reserve and can always be admired from a small distance. There is often a lot going on here, so that you are rarely alone or in peace.
