That tells you some about it, but that’s not all there is, ya know.
There are five districts to the town, each is unique and has something for you to see and do.
Lachendorf — Top Areas Of Interest
Take Ahnsbeck, for example. This village is known for its nature reserve area, as well as its 15th century chapel, and it’s old Bake House.
Beedenbostel has the Baroque church of St. Martin of Tours, a 20th century mill, and old houses like the one at Am Wehrturm 3 that was built in 1751.
Eldingen has its own church, too. St. Mary’s is tad older, built in the 1300s, but its Castle didn’t come along until the turn of the last century. Today the manor house is used for all sorts of celebrations and exhibitions.
For some really, really old history (no, make that prehistory) head to Gockenholz, known for its Bronze Age burial mounds.
Spechtshorn (part of Hohne) is good if you want to hike along some peat bogs, or if you’re into bird watching, since many migratory birds stop here before getting to their end destination.
Over in Hohne proper is a quaint village church (the Church of the Assumption) that looks postcard perfect just about anytime of year, but especially in the summer. Hohne is also where you’ll find what used to be Burg Heeßel, a castle from the 8th century.
Lachendorf’s got plenty of festivals on top of everything else. Spring starts off right with the Easter bonfire, while April brings on the Dorffest (Village Festival). July is the perfect month for the Summer Festival, while the Thanksgiving Festival, Autumn Market, and Autumn Festival are held when the weather starts to get cooler (think, September). And what a charming Christmas Market Lachendorf has, too.
It’s all in one place, one would say, and there’s little to laugh about.
