Hannibal‘s grave, Lüneburg Heath Germany

In late 19th century German painter Eugen Bracht came back from a trip to Turkey with a painting showing Hannibal‘s grave. It wasn‘t long until some people realized that the background in the painting looked strikingly similar to this rock formation near Wilsede. There were rumours that Brecht had never even been in Turkey and this amazing spot got it‘s name.

thanks Julian, wild camping is not allowed. there is a campsite but I am not sure how far it is to this spot. you are better off staying in Wilsede. From there the spot is 15 minutes walk and you can reach another highlight (totengrund) easily from there. https://www.lueneburger-heide.de/en
