    The Wilseder mountain is with 169.2 meters the highest elevation in the Lüneburg Heath. The trails on the mountain are very nice. You can also see Hamburg in good weather.

    The climb is worthwhile in any case. The view extends far into the surrounding heathland.

    The panoramic view really worth it. If you are not lost on crowds, you should come very early in the morning. For sunrise with Picknikkorb would be a good time. Even in winter / early spring it is very crowded up there. Somehow, all roads lead to the "mountain" and the visitors only breathe to the top.

    The center of the Lüneburg Heath Nature Park is the 169 m high Wilseder mountain. A wonderful vision is the wanderer's reward for the "ascent".

    The Wilseder Berg is located within the Lüneburg Heath nature reserve in the Lüneburg Heath and is located near Wilsede and Bispingen in the Heidekreis district. The survey was made during the penultimate ice age, the Saale ice age; it is part of a terminal moraine. The mountain has a vast plateau and a flat summit. At the edges it is manifold with hollows, valleys and small ravines.The soils of the area consist of washed-out, gritty-sandy soils with Ortsteinschichten. On it are open sandy surfaces, large heaths and sprawling coniferous forests. The heathland is grazed by Heidschnucken.At Wilseder Berg lies a watershed. Here are the source streams of several rivers, like those of Este, Luhe, Wümme and Böhme. Some of the waters lead to the river system of the Weser, others to the Elbe.Summit stone with metal plate with distance indications: the so-called Gaussian column
    On the summit plateau is a summit stone, on which there is a metal cone: the so-called "Gauss column" [1]. In the metal cone direction and distance information are engraved to neighboring surveys and to cities nearer and farther away. This orientation board was designed by the Hamburg geographer Wilhelm Precht [1].
    The summit of Wilseder Berg was naturally different in the past from today. In the 1860s, 7 spruce trees were planted there as a landmark to emphasize the Wilseder mountain in the hilly landscape. Emil Stender figured in his hiking guide hikes to Hamburg the number of trees in the fall of 1889 to five, between 1904 and 1906 were still three spruces available and around 1910 of these spruce was finally only a tree left. The Heidebrand in 1920 set this tree, so that he stood until about 1926. In 1977 Walter Gröll wrote that a European beech tree is growing as a new signal tree on the Wilseder Berg [2].

    It is worth it .. With a bit of luck, you can watch a herd of pigs, including shepherds and dogs.

    A visit to the Wilseder Berg is part of every visit to the Lüneburg Heath. The ascent is not that difficult and yet you will be rewarded by a wonderful view. Also the Heidschnuckenweg leads past here.

    Yes, the view is great in every season! It is particularly exciting, if you can still observe a Heidschnuckenherde. The shepherds have great herding dogs with them. But always pack well, it's windy up there.

    Great view in great weather. In any case before 11 clock there, otherwise there are a lot of people then. So you can also picnic and inspect the distance.

    We have already done this tour several times. Always with other starting points. Once from Behring. Here we have strengthened ourselves in Wilsede with the famous pea soup with inlay before it continues to Wilseder Berg. In this way, the ground of the dead invites you to linger.
