Tips

  • Andreas Platzl

    The landscape here in the Totengrund has its unique charm in every season. Many visitors come especially in August, when a purple sea of ​​flowers over the entire landscape. Personally, I find this quiet place in autumn and winter best when fog or frost bring the sprawling nature to sparkle. It feels like being in the middle of a watercolor painting.

    So now during the heather bloom you are almost trampled to death at normal times of the day ...
    But if you get the ar ... up early and are there at sunrise, with a little luck you will be rewarded with great impressions! (Says my better half who needs to know ;-))

    As early as 1906, the heath pastor Wilhelm Bode saved the Totengrund from planned construction measures and thus sealed the creation of the first nature reserve in Germany. In 1921 the heathland was put under nature protection. Today the Totengrund is one of the most beautiful and most visited heath areas in the entire Lüneburg Heath.

    The Totengrund - a valley of unearthly beauty

    The mystical valley in the middle of the Lüneburg Heath nature reserve, one kilometer southeast of Wilsede. Is it haunted here? No, what sounds so mystical is actually one of the most beautiful heath areas. When the heather blooms here in August, you have a wonderful view of the sea of flowers from the edges of the valley. The purple heather splendor makes the cauldron overflow.

    But the Totengrund is not just a dream for the heather bloom. Even in spring, when nature awakens, the bottom of the dead is a worthwhile destination. Lovers appreciate the dead ground especially in winter or in fog, because then the mystical picture appears. A landscape like a watercolor painting, almost unrealistic. That is why the Totengrund is one of the most photographed areas of the Lüneburg Heath.

    The Totengrund lies in the middle of the car-free nature reserve Lüneburg Heath. The next village is Wilsede, which can also only be reached on foot, by bike or by carriage.

    Hammer view over a falling valley with heath. We were there in April and the sight had a touch of Western. All that was missing was the cowboy.

    The Ground of the Dead is a small valley that wants to be hiked to present all the beauty.

    The absolute highlight is the view from all sides into the basin. Access to the valley is of course prohibited.

    Actually, all looks in the basin are fascinating and therefore you should walk around the bottom of the dead.

    Fabulous view of the purple valley. There are hiking trails at the top of the Totengrund, which offer a good view of the heath and juniper bushes.

    The best views are indeed "from above", but even if you walk the path to the bottom of the ground, you can enjoy the unique diversity of this heather section - especially at the height of flowering.
