Papenburg Zeitspeicher Visitor Centre

The Zeitspeicher Visitor Centre is an interactive experience, where the town’s founder, Dietrich von Velen, accompanies you “personally” on a multimedia tour of the town’s history and current attractions. You will go on a hike through the moors, listen in on yarns recounted by Papenburg captains in a bar in Buenos Aires and go on a top secret test drive in a disguised prototype on a test track at Automotive Testing Papenburg GmbH. Explore the evolution of shipbuilding and navigation in Papenburg through interactive displays.


Lower Saxony’s KinderFerienLand certification makes it easier for parents to search for destinations geared towards kids' holidays. The basic idea is that only family friendly companies will bear the seal. Expert assessors check the operation’s service, child-friendly facilities and child safety standards.
