Step right up, Folks, Germany’s got everything you could ask for. Roman ruins, castle ruins, Celtic ruins, megaliths, beachside vacations, and more!
Errr, hold on a second. Megaliths? What’s a megalith? Ever hear of Stonehenge? That’s a megalith — large stone or stones made into a monument of some kind.
What’s the point of this science lesson? To tell you about the town of Molbergen in Lower Saxony, Station #21 on the Straße der Megalithkultur or Route of Megalithic Culture (a 330km scenic route), that’s why.
Molbergen — Top Areas Of Interest
Ever heard of this scenic route?
It’s famous for its Teufelssteine or Devil’s Stones on the road from the Vrees district to Bischofsbrück.
As if these massive prehistoric stones aren’t enough to bring you to Molbergen, perhaps all the Easter festivities, Advent celebrations, and the Christmas Market in December might entice you.
Oh yeah, the Patronatsfest of St. Anne and the Summer Festival every July are always popular for both resident and visitor alike. Any chance you get to eat yummy street food with a fine German beer is a good time, don’t ya think?
Molbergen is also close to the Wildeshausen Geest, which you can either see on your own or as part of a guided bicycle or hiking tour.
I would suggest that your guide takes you to see the Steingarten Marga, a charming garden (with a koi pond) that was done all by the work of one man. Ambitious fellow, wasn’t he?
For something to do on your own, I would recommend trying your legs at Nordic Walking or along the Fitness Trail. You can do either as fast or slow as you want, ya know. If you’re out exploring the Moorlands, take your time — the terrain is pretty amazing.
For the kids, I’m pretty sure they’ll love the Amusement Park Landal Dwergter Sand, an area that’s perfect for younger visitors. OK, you can have some fun there, too.
I guess I should have started with, “Step right up, Folks — Molbergen’s got prehistoric sites, gorgeous countryside, and fantastic festivals.” Anything and everything you could possibly ask for, right?
