Pinneberg is known in history as the village with a castle.
Now, one thing we all agree about Germany is the amazing amount of fairytale castles dotting the rural landscape. So much so that, after you’ve been there for a certain amount of time you come to sort of take them for granted.
But that being so, here’s your chance to go back in time and tread softly on the annals as it takes you on a mystical tour through the mists of time to a wondrous past.
Though now in ruins the Pinneberg castle still speaks volumes of a history that goes back to 1351. Locals still remember the night during the World War when 8500 bombs were dropped in and around the vicinity. After listening to this tragic you can’t but be amazed at the spectacular beauty that has risen out of it.
The town is picture perfect and laid out with all conveniences that you might be wanting. In fact you’ve come to a wonderful spot to enjoy the outdoors. From biking to bowling Pinneberg’s got it covered.
The town will surprise you with its gourmet delights. Settle down to a Bavarian treat of generous proportions washed down with gallons of bubbly and beer. Don’t leave before you try the local home made goodies.
Friendly locals make you feel right at home with their cheerful hospitality. In fact Pinneberg is thickly populated in spite of its small size. That is certainly saying something for their friendly Willkommen.
Pinneberg and its outskirts hold plenty of sight seeing opportunities for the whole family. Parks and swimming pools invite you to simply laze. Consider a hike on the spectacular country side. Drop in on a way side café for a generous helping of locally baked cake and coffee spiced with a bit of local legend.
You’ll be glad you came. :-)
