The Klare Grete is a former small river in the district south of Calvörde in the Calvörde forest .


The source of the Klaren Grete was once considered the strongest and clearest source in the Calvörde Mountains , but began to dry up from 1860 onwards. Today the Klare Grete is almost dry, but traces of the course of the river can be seen. Where it flowed to is unknown; According to the Gerlach map from 1763, the Klare Grete has only a short and narrow river in the Calvörde forest. In 1920 a memorial stone was erected so as not to forget the Klare Grete. Not far from the river was the now desolate village called Käsdorf . The Cloridenberg is in front of the Klaren Grete. You can also find boundary stones here. These date from the time when Calvörde still belonged to the Duchy of Braunschweig .

A stylized representation of the source of the Clear Grete is part of the Wieglitz coat of arms in the municipality of Bülstringen .
