North Sea-Elbe-Weser

Go on a voyage of discovery in the North Sea-Elbe-Weser region!

In the Stade district, the picturesque Hanseatic city of Stade Germany and town of Buxtehude are well worth a visit.
Tasting the crunchy apples grown in Altes Land also comes highly recommended.
On the Wümme-Radweg bike path, cyclists can take it easy as they pedal through the district of Rotenburg an der Wümme, stopping off at a typically North German Melkhus (a “milk service station” for cyclists) along the way.
The best way to cross the Teufelsmoor is on the nostalgic Moorexpress train.
A detour to explore the artistic community in Worpswede is a must. Or you can chug along on the traditional peat barge on the Hamme river - just like old times!

Watermills, Windmills and Motorised Mills

Discover the many different kinds of mills to be found in Rotenburg (Wümme). Numerous watermills as well as some windmills and motorised mills will transport you back to bygone days. On your journey into the past, you will have the chance to learn something of the miller’s craft and to take a close look at the different types of mills. Many of the mills are steeped in history and have been brought back to life by the dedicated efforts of mill enthusiasts.

Local History and Bakery Museum

In some mills, you can enjoy home-made baked specialities in a historical atmosphere or turn back time in their local history and bakery museum. Every Whit Monday, which is Mühlentag (mill day) in Germany, nearly all mill owners open their doors to the public.
The region’s mills also form part of the Niedersächsische Mühlenstraße (Lower Saxony’s Mill Route) and can be visited by cyclists following the Mühlenroute.
