The town of Westoverledingen has several interesting attractions. Along with the beautiful landscape and scenery that is offered by almost any town in Germany, Westoverledingen offers several museums and other culture and country adventures.
One museum that you may find particularly interesting is the “From Grain To Bread” museum. This museum is the remains of an old bakery where you can see a reconstructed steam oven, several grain mills, and an original bread wagon.
Another farm-related museum that is a popular amongst tourists is the historic “Neemann” farmhouse. You’ll see a huge collection of old farming tools and crafts. You’ll also get a glimpse of every day life by strolling through the living areas of the farmhouse, including the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and more.
Westoverledingen — Top Areas Of Interest
If you would rather spend your time in the present, you can visit the four-star nature park and campgrounds, Freizeitpark. The whole family will feel comfortable exploring the natural North German countryside at this park overlooking a natural lake, where you can enjoy fishing, boating, or just relaxing along the coast. Be sure to visit a local visitors bureau to find out about the different rules and regulations for fishing the waters.
Along with the park, there are some nice cycling routes near this cozy little German town. The most well-known bike trail is located near the Dutch border, between Leer and Papenburg. You’ll get a close look at the windmills, dikes, and small woodland areas.
You don’t have to worry about trying to find good food when you travel through Westoverledingen. Good food and beer are easy to find here, and if you are like me, nothing beats good authentic German food and tasty beer from local microbreweries.
There are many German restaurants dotting the landscape, but there are also places you can go for an out of town taste. For good Greek cuisine, check out Syrtaki in the nearby town of Leer. It’s located just around the corner from the railway station. ;-)
