Oschersleben (Bode) — Ready, Set, Go To The Races!

Visitors to Oschersleben (Bode) can start their engines. With the Motorsport Arena here, you might just be able to catch a race on the 3.6 kilometer long track. Since 2005, the World Touring Car Championship has been held here.

There is a hotel on the grounds for fans to stay in, but if you want to rough it a bit, then opt to overnight in the camping grounds.

Those wanting to get a good first impression of the city should take a trip to the City Museum. This will help you to learn about the history of the city and what is currently happening. The history during the Second World War is especially interesting because this small town was hit more than 10 times by air raids due to the airplane factory that was here.

The best time to travel to Oschersleben is during berry season. To pick the juiciest berries, a trip to Hohes Holz is in order. Not only is it one of the most beautiful natural areas in the whole province, but it is quiet and relaxing as well.

Almost everyone thinks that the Middle Ages was a romantic period in history and many want to see relics of this time period. Oschersleben has a castle that has been there since the middle of the 12th century. It has been built and knocked down several times since then, but the Ampfurth Castle still looks as stately as ever. You won’t be able to go inside, but you can definitely snap some photos from outside.

To see nature in a different way, visit the Zoo and Aquarium. For the size of the town (around 17,000 people), the aquarium is really good. This should keep the kids entertained and be a relaxing afternoon for adults, too.

The earth in the area around Oschersleben is really fertile and good for farming. This fact might just have inspired the statue the Seed Man. This sculpture from Stephan Walter got first prize in a national competition in 1913. To see the statue, look near the entrance of the City Library or see a copy in Wiesen Park.
