Germany Hannibal‘s grave, Lüneburg Heath
- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
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.

Wilsede is in the middle of a nature reserve where there are no cars allowed. You either stay in Wilsede (spot is a short 15m walk from there) or you hire a bike and get here from Undeloh or Volkwardingen (count with an hour from either of those). Best time of the year is late August/early September when the heather is in bloom.
