    As early as 1906, Heide Pastor Wilhelm Bode rescued the ground for the dead from planned construction work and thus sealed the formation of the first nature reserve in Germany. In 1921, the heathland was then protected. Today, the Totengrund is one of the most beautiful and most visited heathlands in the entire Lüneburg Heath.

    The place is opposite the rising sun, who wants to take photos of sun rays, which cut directly after sunrise through the still standing in the valley early morning fog, is just right.

    Why is the reason for the death called the ground of death?Here are the ghosts, whereby "ghosts" is already the keyword for the first theory ...
    The funeral train theory
    True to the old customs, the dead were formerly "hauled" through the Valley of the Dead in a funeral procession. The actual streets should not be used for this transport and so a larger detour had to be taken over the ground of the dead. The ghosts of that time are said to be in the grave today.
    The dead ice block theory
    The peculiar cauldron of the Totengrundes with ancient juniper groves belongs to the flat-wave moraine landscape. Through constant defrosting of a huge, sand-overlaid dead ice block, which existed long after the decline of glaciers, this so-called dry valley seems to have arisen. From the melting of the dead ice block then remained the background of the dead.
    The meteorite theory
    The ground of the dead was created by a violent meteorite impact, which extinguished all life in this area to a (one) blow. Only the "bottom of the dead" remained.
    The dead-ground theory
    Since in the bottom of the dead, as in the rest of the heathland, only a few nutrients were contained in the soil and there was no spring and no brook, neither livestock nor agriculture could be operated in the area of ​​the bottom of the earth. The ground of death was formerly called by the heathen farmers "dead ground". The only plants were juniper and heather. However, people could not live on it.

    A walk around the bottom of the ground gives you a constantly changing view of a landscape that is unparalleled. You should take a break on one of the many benches and take a break and enjoy the wonders of nature.

    Although it is beautiful during flowering, but unfortunately the tourists come by bus and it is like at the fish market. Outside the flower, it is just as beautiful, but much calmer.
