Towns & Villages in the Verden District
Just east of Bremen, Achim features the Weser River Valley, the Badener Mountains and the high sand dunes of the heath, making it the perfect location for your outdoor excursions. For camping nearby, stop at Oyten, where you will find campgrounds by the sandy shores of its kilometer-long lake.
Head northeast to Ottersberg if you enjoy cycling. Signposted cycle paths will take you along the Green Ring around Bremen, the Wümme Path along the river, or a long distance challenge all the way to Hamburg.
The town of Verden is the district capital on the Aller River. Noteworthy here are its churches: the 12th-century St. John’s Church with its baroque tower, the 13th-century St. Andrew’s Church, and a cathedral established in 1490.
Surrounding the capital are three interesting towns. Visit Kirchlinteln for its Lindhoop Monument made of local boulders. Go to Dörverden to see its landmark windmill, reconstructed in 1857 on the site of a 12th-century original.
And don’t miss Langwedel, where 19th-century Castle Etelsen has been recast as a training and conference facility.
