Bad Bevensen? Lüneburg Heath, check. Spa town, check.
However, like most people I’m sure you’ll want more reasons for coming to this spa town. But wait, isn’t that Bad Bevensen is a SPA town enough? No? Well, some of you simply want more, don’t you? ;-)
Good thing Bad Bevensen has a 90 minute guided tour about the town for you to take. This is a great way to see the town’s highlights, going back to explore more of what peaked your interest later on.
Guided hiking tours through the region are also offered. Ask your guide to take you to see the Iron Age Cemetery. Yes, that’s how long people have lived here.
A church, however, wasn’t erected in Bad Bevensen until around 833. The Three Kings Church, now Evangelical Lutheran, was built and rebuilt over the centuries; the last being in the 1950’s. And St. Joseph’s Catholic Church was built around the same time (1946).
I’m sure the kids would appreciate going to the nearby TreeTrek sports and amusement park instead of looking at churches, or cycling around the Lüneburg Heath. But, everyone can have fun at the Jod-Sole-Therme, which is open year round.
This spa complex has everything a family could need for a day (or a few — ask about multi-day packages) of fun, food, and relaxation. It has two outdoor pools, a bistro, a sauna garden, a Finnish Sauna, steamrooms, and massages.
After a relaxing massage, a night listening to a Philharmonic performance would certainly end the day well. If the symphony isn’t your idea of a good time, there are always jazz concerts, film showings, and book readings.
I’m sure you could find all these things in Bremen, Hamburg, Schwerin, Hannover, and Wolfsburg; but, you won’t find it with the panache of Bad Bevensen.
