Oyten is charming enough to engage you completely once you’ve made acquaintance.
Stroll into the Market Place which is where the Town Hall is located. Chances are you’ll find a gathering there celebrating some local event with a good deal of enthusiasm that may soon draw you in as well. This is also where you’ll find the Evangelical Church of St. Peter.
The Oyten Lake is another venue where you’ll find a lot of fun and excitement. Walking trails, children’s playground, and of course the lake itself afford plenty of options to while away a lazy afternoon.
Maybe it’s time to put on your hiking shoes and get going or then again you could take a leisurely stroll around the lake. If you’ve fallen in love with the lake area, you could consider camping right there on its sandy beaches. Visit the Oyten Knaus Camping Park to do just that.
The town has plenty for those that can’t sit still. There’s tennis, bowling, mini-golf and other sports including fishing and swimming. Check out the many horse riding stables around the city. Oyten does seem to be partial to horses and if that describes you, you’ve got seven options to choose from.
Oyten is deservedly proud of its historicity and you’re welcome to get a good idea of what it’s all about at the various repositories of culture in the city. The Heimatverein is a lovely half-timbered building that houses antiques from various periods in the town’s history.
Then there’s the Baking Stable where they hold baking events about thrice a year. If you’re lucky you’ll be around when the aroma of freshly baked goodies suffuse the air.
Another cultural hub worth checking out is the Block Huus Bassen where local talent comes up with mind-blowing extravaganzas.
