Bergen belongs to the rural district of  (Landkreis) Celle. Known throughout the world for the concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen, among whose victims we find the name of Anna Frank. We continue with crossing the vast plain of Lower Saxony, referring to waterways, settlements, and farms. We can imagine the difficulties of an ancient pilgrim in finding his way, avoiding the numerous marshes. The crossing of he immense plain of Lower Saxony, having as a guide only water courses and settlements or farmsteads, we can imagine the difficulties of a pilgrim in finding his way avoiding swamps, today reclaimed, and in finding hospitality. We leave the city starting from Am Friedensplatz, we cross the Cellerstrasse, continuing straight on the Deichen up to Am der Bahn; we turn right and at the first crossing we take the Kampweg on the left; We follow this today reclaimed, area which lie between here and the Roxhullenser Weg; here we turn right, 400 m and cross Wholde Ghnausee o L281 and we will be in the small village of Wholde: we turn left, then right and at the crossroad we  take the Hunenburgerweg.
