I wouldn’t be lying if I said you won’t find too many tourists in the town of Tangstedt (Stormarn). Yeah, sure, there are a few guesthouses for some visitors, but not many.
Ahh, room to spread out, peace & quiet. All the things that make a German happy. ;-)
And, by the way, if you think this Tangstedt is small with just over 6,000 residents — you should go see nearby Tangstedt (Pinneberg) that’s merely 22km or 27 minutes away, where only about 2,200 people live.
Tangstedt (Stormarn) — Top Areas Of Interest
This is North Germany so it can get quite cold here in the winter. No wonder many events are held indoors during the season, like concerts and community breakfasts.
So what if you don’t speak German? Food is food. Just don’t go eating anything with your hands. Quiet makes a German happy, but eating like a barbarian will make us morph into a Krazy Kraut. ;-)
When the weather warms up everything moves to the outside. Flea Markets and Easter Bonfires, Summer Festivals, Farmers Markets, Family and Thanksgiving Festivals await you.
The exception to the whole winter indoor thing is the Christmas Market in early December, that’s held outdoors at the Rathausplatz.
Who cares if the mercury dips a little low. Don’t let something so simple as chilly weather stop you from walking along the tree-lined Beekmoorweg. There’s an old milking house at Beekmoorweg 8, if you’re interested.
As you’re wandering about, you should make the time to see the Gut Wulksfelde, a farm that’s been around since the 14th century and used as a brickyard, a glassworks, a brewery, up to an Organic Farm, which it is now.
That sounds healthy, but so is walking around the 131km of roads throughout Tangstedt. Or, just take one of the many bus routes to see the place.
Hmm, you’d think with all that easy public transportation more people would come to Tangstedt — maybe they’ve headed to the other one instead?
