Right at the beginning of this stage is the heart of the Lüneburg Heath (German: Lüneburger Heide). The wide heath areas around the Wilseder Berg were one seedbeds of nature conservation in Germany. In addition to the Wilseder Berg, the highlights of this stage include the car-free museum village of Wilsede and above all the Totengrund, a dry valley which was home to the first nature reserve in the Lüneburg Heath.
It is perhaps less spectacular after the Totengrund , but still charming as forest and meadow paths lead to Behringen and then to Bispingen.

Wilseder Berg / Lüneburg Heath nature reserve
The Wilseder Berg is with 169,2m height the highest elevation of the Lüneburg Heath. The open heath landscape surrounding it is a popular excursion destination, especially during the heather blossom (August/September).
The village of Wilsede, situated in the middle of the Lüneburg Heath nature reserve and closed to general motor traffic, consists mainly of old farmhouses that are well worth seeing. A heath museum and various gastronomic facilities invite you to stay.
