The town of Holzminden has been around since the 9th century, so as you might guess there are many architectural sights to be seen, including several houses preserved from the 17th century. Farming and crafts have given way to industry, however, notably the production of flavorings and scents.
Delligsen has several attractions waiting for you, including the Erich Mäder Glass Museum, with displays of glass art from its beginnings to the present. Hiking in the nearby Hils and Steinberg areas comes highly recommended, too.
In Stadtoldendorf, you will find a number of century-old sights to explore, such as the Old Town Hall built in 1875. Campsites are plentiful in the vicinity, especially within the woods, meadows and hills of 150-hectare Mammoth Park.
At the confluence of the Weser and Lenne rivers, you will come to Bodenwerder, the birthplace, residence and final resting place of adventurer cum tall-tale storyteller Baron Münchhausen (1720-1797). Be sure to drop by the Münchhausen Museum while you are in town.
