Insider Tips about Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony)

Mountains and sea, adventure and relaxation. You can have it all here in Niedersachsen.
In this brochure, we will showcase the hotspots of Niedersachsen and the peculiar things to do and see in Germany’s second-largest state. Whether you want mountains, moor or maritime flair, Niedersachsen has an array of exciting places and history just waiting to be discovered.

Did you know, for example, that Iceland and Canada aren’t the only destinations where you can go whale watching? You can do it right here in the town of Wilhelmshaven!
And did you know Niedersachsen is guaranteed snow 365 days a year? That’s right. Even if you don’t want to dart down a slope on skis, you can source snow for your local snow bar in the Snow Dome in Bispingen. Even in summer!

The 500+ meticulously restored half-timbered buildings in Celle really wow visitors. As the largest enclosed group of half-timbered buildings in Europe, it really does make for a stunning photo backdrop. There are also plenty of peculiar things to see and do in the state capital of Hanover, where DJ Gullyman plays the latest chart hits from the world’s smallest disco: a gully.
If you want unusual accommodation options in Niedersachsen, why not spend the night on an overnight beach chair by the sea. Perfect for romantic occasions! If you’re looking for action-packed adventure, then why not take to lofty heights and stay in a tent pitched between trees. Or spend the night alone with a thousand books in the “Schwarz auf Weiß” book shop in Buxtehude.
