Verden has a history that goes back to the times of Charlemagne, though the association might not have been a happy one. Well, that’s one of the many intriguing things for you to investigate once you actually get here.
There are also the many more pleasant aspects that will enthrall you and make you glad you came. The town’s association with horses and its collection of medieval architecture are just a few among many exciting things that will perk up your vacation.
Verden has this famous Cathedral that towers over all in the Old Town quarters. You’ll find this east of the Aller as you walk along the cobbled pedestrian street. Coming with quite an interesting bit of history, its interiors are as compelling as its majestic domed exterior. Right next to it is the St. Andrew’s Church with its own attractive features in place.
In the vicinity and adding greatly to the medieval ambience of the Town Hall is the Baroque St. John’s Church, which you’ll surely want to check out. St. Joseph’s Church is yet another historical edifice you’ll find intriguing.
Verden is quite proud of its association with horse racing and rightly so. A visit to the Deutsches Pferdemusuem, or the German Horse Museum, is therefore the way to go in order to fully appreciate the vibrancy of this aspect of the town’s history. Another museum that you should surely not give a miss is the Domherrenhaus, the Historical Museum where you’ll be enthralled by exhibits that take you back to the Stone Age and right back to the future to the present.
The clean, green city of Verden is just the right place to enjoy the glorious outdoors. Go fishing, trekking, biking, bowling, or golfing in a variety of venues that really takes you back to the beauties of nature. Take a guided city tour, a carriage and wagon ride, or go boating along the blue waters of the Aller.
If you’re traveling with kids, the Magic Park Verden is a not-to-be-missed destination.
