In Aurich you’ll be overwhelmed with the natural beauty of the place that surely adds to its historic artistry that awaits your explorations. There’s plenty to tour and visit from palaces to museums. So come prepared to be swept off your feet by a historic city like none other.
Aurich takes great pride in its Market Place. You can’t miss it; it’s right at the center of things with a vibrant crowd engaged in a variety of activities from people-gazing to conducting serious businesses. Of course, tourists are everywhere as this is where you’ll find the historic structures dating back to the 16th century.
Time stands still as you shop, dine, stroll, and take in hundreds of year’s worth of excitement that is still tangible on these cobbled stones. A visit to the Historical Museum here is a great idea to soak in all that old world charm. Another museum that might be of interest to you would be the Coach Museum housed in the Wallinghausen. Have your fill of carriages, automobiles, and similar stuff from all ages.
Right there in the Aurich Market Place is where you’ll find the Knodtsches Haus which is now a school. The beautiful Baroque building must surely inspire the students to new heights. Stroll over to the lovely St. Lambert’s Church with its impressive Gothic altar. The interiors will hold you for quite a while with its artistic marvels.
Aurich has more than majestic buildings. For a spell of total relaxation you should consider getting on a canal cruise. Go straight to the Ems Jade harbor from where you can embark on a number of cruises. Just find one that suits your time and temperament. Looming bridges, dams, locks, and waterways are all wonderful attractions on the way. :-)
