Rosdorf Is A Little Surprise In Lower Saxony

Rosdorf in Lower Saxony isn’t a huge tourist destination. It’s a place of rolling mountains and farms, a place where its landmarks are two sugar silos. As if that doesn’t tell you something right there. But, that doesn’t mean you won’t like it here.

There must be some sort of attraction to the area since the place has had people live here since the Stone Age. Now, only about 12,000 people call this place home. Maybe they like the many timber framed houses from the 19th century? And the old St. Johannis church is still in use after many a century.

Though, the oldest church in all of Rosdorf’s eleven villages is St. Martin’s in Sieboldshausen. It’s been here since the 9th century, though the church did have to be rebuilt around the same time the American colonies where fighting for independence from England (that would 1776 for you non-history folk).

Interestingly enough, while there isn’t too much sightseeing to be done around these parts; Rosdorf is home to a large conference hotel. The Freizeit Inn Hotel is a 4-star hotel, so even if you’re not going to see too much, you can at least stay in style. Freizeit Inn has a fitness center, swimming pool, and a fine restaurant offering delicious German cuisine.

Still, there are camping facilities available within the Lower Saxony countryside. Just in case you’d much rather be more in touch with nature. Even if you don’t stay the night, there’s always time to walk, hike, or bicycle through the area. This is farmland, so the area isn’t too densely populated, perfect if you’re looking to get away from it all.

Just as you thought that Rosdorf wouldn’t have something to offer a traveler, it surprises you with some wonderful places to visit. Maybe this is why so many people call Rosdorf home?
