Hude (Oldenburg) relies on your visual senses to ensure that you enjoy your visit. Almost all of the town attractions are based on sight. If you don’t think your eyes can capture it all, you will want to be sure to bring you camera.
When you start your exploration, you may as well start with the biggest thing on offer: the universe. Hude has created a special 10 km or 6 mile trail that is decorated with the planets and moons of our solar system. Done to scale, it lets you walk literally across the universe in a single afternoon! ;-)
The planets are not the only trail worth hiking in the area. You can move from the solar system to a special woods trail that showcases the oak tree preserves. The trees there have been protected for more than 150 years.

From the trees you will want to head just south of the town to the sculpture park. It is hard to miss, as there are 45 large sculptures planted into a 1.4 hectare field. The pieces were designed by local sculptures Isla Winkler and Wolf E. Schulze. Some are abstracts, while others are fantastical creatures.
If you move back into the main town area, you can give a glance at the history of Hude. There are impressive monastic ruins, as well as several religious properties still standing.
Within the monastic area, there are also several craft and boutique shops, as well as another gallery of Isla Winkler’s work. You can tour her private garden as well, by appointment, which can be arranged with the tourist office.
In the evenings, why not watch the sunset from one of the town cafe’s and review your photos and memories. Hude counts on you to enjoy its visual offerings, and the locals will be sure to point out any stops you’ve missed at the end of the day!
