    The Totengrund is a basin with up to 40 meters high flanks, which can be circled on the Hermann Löns way above the ground. You have a great view.

    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.

    Suitable for Dogscootern with one or two dogs, approx. 1/3 light, medium and heavy passages, the latter only with controllable dogs and cross-rollers!

    Details on the track for dog scooter riders on my profile. Have fun driving, Miriam

    A path around the valley is definitely worth it. Again and again there is a new look that you can not get enough of.

    The ground of death. A glacial cauldron that is today overgrown with heather and juniper bushes. His name can not be clarified clearly. The most likely reason: The heathen farmers found here a little fertile soil (ie dead soil). The valley basin is very poor in water as a dry valley ..... The Totengrund offers impressive views to the pagan heat at any time of the day.

    One of the most beautiful valleys in the Lüneburg Heath. A visit is a must for every visitor in the heathland. Whether at one of the viewpoints or as a circular route around the valley.

    The Totengrund is a 30-acre basin on the edge of Wilseder Berg. In 1906, Pastor Wilhelm Bode bought this area with donations to preserve its beauty. So here is the cradle of the 1921 established nature reserve Lüneburg Heath.
    In the probably glacial Kessel 1 km south of Wilsede grow strikingly striking juniper bushes and heather. Its name probably derives from the barren soil, so that the heathlanders once gave the dry valley the name of "dead ground". Together with the Wilseder Berg the Totengrund is one of the most famous places in the nature reserve Lüneburger Heide. Already at the beginning of the 20th century, the attractive landscape attracted numerous visitors.
    To protect the valuable heathland, the ground of the dead must not be entered. But there is an observation deck to admire it. At the top of the valley some hiking trails lead along, u.a. the circular walk Behringen or the circular hiking trails Oberhaverbeck. You can also reach the bottom of the dead by bike or carriage. Popular starting points are Ober- and Niederhaverbeck, Undeloh, Döhle and Sudermühlen. After the funeral, a detour to the Steingrund is worthwhile - a beautiful heathland with junipers and boulders.

    A tour around the bottom of the ground is definitely worth a visit to admire the valley from all sides. Many benches invite you to take a break to enjoy the view.
