• Totengrund

Totengrund is definitely one of the most-photographed and oft-visited locations in Lüneburg Heath. No wonder: the heath valley is surrounded by an almost otherworldly beauty. Particularly in the early morning hours in late summer, when the heather bloom is in its full glory, the morning dew glitters like pearls and a light fog billows through the valley, you can take fantastic landscape photos here without any other tourists around.

Photo tip: The early bird catches the worm, or in this case the photo. When the heather blooms in August and September, it is best to be here very early – from sunrise at 4:30 am.
