For anyone who doesn’t know what that means, it’s a way of saying it’s a place where many live, but commute to work in these bigger cities.
Fine and dandy, but just because it sits between two cultural giants, doesn’t mean nothing goes on here. This is a collective municipality, so you’re pretty much assured to find something to do among its four districts.
Sickte — Top Areas Of Interest
Apelnstedt is the place to be for its annual Maypole celebrations, and its Summer Festival every July.
Hötzum is the village with its own Folk Festival, an event so much fun it takes two days to do.
And Sickte proper? It holds its own Summer Festival in June, so not to conflict with Apelnstedt. And what’s really nice about Sickte is how the community comes together for other things, like wood collecting for the town’s Easter bonfire. Sickte also hosts things like choral concerts and flea markets, to just name a few.
Like windmills? Good, you’ll find one in Dettum — it’s its landmark, by the way. Prefer something a bit more rural? Ok, Sickte can do that, too. You’ll just want to be in Mönchevahlberg, or in Neuerkerode to see all the farms. Neuerkerode is the town that hosts the town’s annual Christmas Market, BTW.
Want something really old? Then it’s Evessen (its English name is Evesham), whose landmark is a Tumulus (a prehistoric grave mound) that’s topped by a shady tree.
Not nearly as old, but still lovely, is the village of Veltheim. Veltheim, by the way, is more than 850 years old; and has a moated castle and the St. Remigius Church to see. And in the village of Erkerode, you’ll find a magnificent Monastic Church.
Wolfenbüttel and Brunswick might be big cities where people work, but folks know to come to Sickte to live. ;-)
