It’s gotta be the law of averages. When you have twenty-six (yes, 26) hamlets that make up one town, there’s bound to be something to do. And in Wittingen in Lower Saxony, there are 26 hamlets and there is something to do.
The Lüneburg Heath is a lesson in history, geography, geology, and anthropology. It has mountains, hills, rivers, forest, moorlands, rock formations, and Stone Age grave hills.
Wittingen — Top Areas Of Interest
You’ll find more of the same within the Altmark. The area within the Altmark is a bit more flat, which is good if you’re looking for a less rigorous hike or bike ride.
And that’s just what people come here for; to bike and hike to their heart’s content. They also come to Wittingen to swim, camp, fish, play tennis and miniature golf. Hey, you’ll even find a disco in town if you want to party the night away. ;-)
Wittingen isn’t all natural history and sports, there’s a medieval city center, too. There are also four historical churches within town. Well, three churches and one chapel to be exact.
If you’re an art lover, then you’ll appreciate the Dreikönigskapelle (3 kings chapel), the St Stephanus Church (found at the Marktplatz), the St. Stephans Church (at the Hindenbergwall), and the Maria Königin Roman Catholic Church (on the Schützenstraße). They’re not all historic medieval churches, but they’re still beautiful and a source of pride around town.
The town’s also proud of its two town parks. They’re the perfect place for a picnic, letting the kids enjoy the playground, or just sitting around the pond enjoying the world go by.
I guess it’s safe to say that the law of averages are right. There is something to do around here.
