Tips

  • Wanderklaus

    A beautiful lake south of Rotenburg. Also for a hike an ideal starting point from the large parking lot. Here you have access directly to 2 north paths. Granz nearby is also a Moorlehrpfad I especially recommend.

    Nice local recreation area, interesting north trails.
    There are no toilets on the beach. There is an increased incidence of leeches in the lake.

    Both bull lakes are a beautiful piece of nature. Incidentally, the name of the two 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.

    Not only for swimming, the lake is interesting. I recommend a hike along the shore and then past the Moorlehrpfad through the adjacent moor.

    A beautiful circular hiking trail around the small and large Bullensee, if you want more: the NABU nature trail is signposted and there are also several hiking tours through the White Moor.

    Here you can refresh yourself in the cool summer months in the cool wet.

    A 30m wide sandy beach on the Bullensee, which has formed because of the great drought in the summer / autumn of 2018. Almost "Baltic Sea feeling", it only lacks the beach chairs ;-)). It will probably be over after the rainy season. The walk on the beach and the round about the Bullensee is definitely worthwhile.

    The wide sandy beach I have also found on 11 November 2018. Currently, you can actually go into the (former) lake, without getting wet. Thank the low water level ...

    ... and the Great Bull Lake has still not compensated for the water deficits.

    If you walk from the parking lot towards the lake and then right again along the lake, the entrance to a wonderful hike comes on the right. You can go 7.5 km or 11 km. It is very varied. First you go through a bog landscape called Großer Moor and Weißes Moor. there is a lot of forest, later meadows with sheep and cattle, blueberries in summer and a lot of mushrooms in autumn. it is my favorite hike.

    The last dry summers have not left the Bullensee without a trace. From the bathing place you can walk about 30, 40m into the lake with your feet dry.
