Enjoy a maritime holiday feeling at Lake Steinhude
The landscape around Lake Steinhude is exceptionally diverse: forests, moors, heath and wandering dunes dating back to the Ice Age - all in an attractive lineup. The expansive beach on the northern shore of the lake and the bathing island in Steinhude offer perfect beach fun. Numerous activities, such as water sports, cycling, horse riding, golf and cultural centres turn a visit to Lake Steinhude into a proper holiday experience! Our recommendation: Experience the uniqueness of Steinhude smoked eel during a guided visit to the eel smokehouse.
A green paradise - the Deister
Germany's northernmost highlands range - the Deister - is only about 30 km from Hannover. Bird song, the rustling of leaves and enchanted walks - at up to 405 metres above sea level, you can expect to enjoy a great variety of natural and cultural experiences. The journey is a worthwhile experience in itself! Impressive feudal estates, half-timbered houses and park landscapes, interesting museums, abbeys and a show mine are just a few of the attractions that the entire family can enjoy. Mountain bikers will enjoy challenging freeride routes.
