Not every town in Germany is going to have a long list of historical sites to see. In regard to the town of Stelle in Lower Saxony, it’s just a suburban town of Hamburg (only 20 kilometers south of it) where ordinary people like me and you come home after a hard day’s work.
There are less than a handful of things to see in Stelle; one of which is a memorial to a man named Julian Milejski. On May 4, 1942 Mr. Milejski was a forced labor worker who was killed by the SS because he loved a German girl; which was illegal at that time. It’s a truly sad story for any of you out there that are romantics.
In the historical city center (that dates back much further than the days of the 2nd World War) there’s the church of St. Michael to see, which was built in 1868. The old school now acts as Stelle’s City Hall and a library.
Stelle — Top Areas Of Interest
Just as Bavaria is best enjoyed for its beer, and Baden-Württemberg & Hesse are known for their wines; Lower Saxony is known for its totally stunning countryside that’s best enjoyed by bicycle. Good thing Stelle isn’t known for any of those beverages… you might never get on a bike and ride around. ;-)
To learn more about the forested countryside around Stelle, take a guided tour known as a forest didactic exhibition. You’ll get more out of your trek through the forest when you’re learning all about the local wildlife, flora, and fauna.
If you rather have some quiet time, the forest around town will certainly do the trick. With every step you’ll feel the everyday stresses floating away. There are other sports in Stelle, though, including swimming and volleyball.
When you find yourself in Hamburg, follow Stelle’s residents back home; then rent a bicycle and enjoy every minute you’re here.
