Some places are known for their history or some watershed moment in time. The municipality of Lengede is known, not only for its close proximity to the city of Peine, but for its outstanding natural beauty.
Oh, you’ll find some beautiful historic timber framed buildings around town. But, it is its lush forests that run along the River Fuhse that really stand out. The large protected nature park that surrounds the Lengeder Ponds is just perfect for bird watching, checking out local wildlife, and appreciate all the indigenous flora and fauna.
Within the forest and along the mountains there are numerous walking, hiking, and biking trails for all fitness levels. There are also plenty of grill huts scattered along the way; so don’t forget to pack a lunch for your journeys.

If you get hungry there’s no need to leave the Freibad Lengede as you’ll find a snack bar and luncheonette there.
