Stage description

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.
