Enjoy nature and cities at a Lower Saxony holiday home
Situated in the northwest of Germany, the state of Lower Saxony is a varied region. Holiday homes in Lower Saxony can be found on the coast of the North Sea, nestled in amongst the foothills of soaring peaks and rolling hills, or in the heart of any of the area’s principal cities. Indeed, those seeking a city break are spoiled for choice: Memorable holidays await in Hanover, Osnabrück, Lüneburg, Braunschweig, or Brunswick. Visitors more interested in the great outdoors will be able to roam mile upon mile of unspoiled countryside, ranging from peaceful flatlands to ancient forest.
Everything you need to know about Lower Saxony
When you book a holiday apartment in Lower Saxony you open the door to a huge range of experiences and adventures. Here are just a few of the highlights.
Thrills and spills at Heide Park
Visitors with children might want to book a holiday home in Lower Saxony close to Heide Park, one of the largest amusement parks in Germany, known the world over for its hair-raising attractions and brilliant theming. The star of the show is the wooden roller-coaster, Colossos, but there are plenty of milder attractions, including shows and rides geared towards younger children. There’s something here for every member of the family, and the park operates from April to November, with a few indoor attractions remaining available all year. Don’t overlook the timber-framed Lower Saxony style buildings near the entrance of the park, or the huge replica of the Statue of Liberty that stands at the centre.
Explore the history of Lower Saxony
As well as beautiful natural vistas and bustling cities, this German state has a rich network of historical points of interest. You’ll likely find at least one or two within easy reach of your holiday home in Lower Saxony. Explore the Aegidienkirche in Hanover, and see an ancient church that has stood almost untouched since the destruction of World War II. Visit Alter Kran in Lüneburg and tuck into authentic delicacies from a local market while you take in the sight of a restored historic crane, tucked away in a wonderfully-preserved part of town. You can even take a trip to the sombre but beautiful Bergen-Belsen Memorial site, where you’ll find an informative museum.
Enjoy the varied landscape
There are plenty of options when it comes to enjoying outdoor pursuits while renting a holiday apartment in Lower Saxony. Visitors can take a relaxed stroll through colourful heathland and ancient forest in Lüneburg, or head for the North Sea coast of Lower Saxony, where you’ll find lush valleys and sandy beaches. The Harz Witches’ Trail is one well-known hiking route that will take adventurous walkers up into the mountains. Rocky gorges, quaint market towns, secluded trails, and thousands of years of German mining history are just waiting to be discovered. The sheer variety of landscapes is one of Lower Saxony’s greatest strengths, and thus there are walks on offer to suit any mood.
Relax in the gardens
The cities and towns of Lower Saxony are filled with beautifully-cultivated parks and gardens. If your holiday home in Lower Saxony is within one of the principal cities, you’ll want to spend at least some time exploring these lush green spaces, especially during the summer. The Oldenburger Schlossgarten in Oldenburg was once the preserve of royalty, but now these palatial gardens are open to the public to explore. The Berggarten in Hanover is also very much worth a visit for its diverse range of spaces and plants. In the winter visitors will still be able to enjoy the perfectly-preserved glasshouses, complete with resident butterflies that are bound to delight any families with children.
Popular locations near Lower Saxony
Situated just off the coast in the Leer District of Lower Saxony, Borkum is a small and charming isle, which for a large part of the year is almost entirely car-free. A paradise for walkers, bikers, bird-watchers, and fans of the great outdoors.
Where the River Elbe flows out into the North Sea you’ll find the quaint little seaside retreat of Cuxhaven. This town is a state-recognised resort, and offers an abundance of opportunities for fun on the beach, in the sea, or shopping, dining, and wandering in the historic town itself.
The Harz Mountains have some of the most dramatic elevations in the whole of Germany. Whether you’re looking to explore historic mines, enjoy some prime skiing, or hike through the hills, the Harz Mountains are a must-see when you rent a holiday home in Lower Saxony.
Getting to your holiday home in Lower Saxony
Despite it being such a large region, reaching your holiday home in Lower Saxony should be a breeze. Regular flights from most major UK cities are available to Bremen, Osnabrück, or Hanover airports. You’ll be able to rent a car from any of these, or take advantage of the extensive public transit network. A ticket for unlimited train travel within the region is available. It’s also eminently possible to drive your own car to your holiday home in Lower Saxony–the quickest route is via the Channel Tunnel and on through Belgium.
The best time to explore Lower Saxony
The weather of Lower Saxony is as varied as its landscape. You’ll find the mountains cool and often wet throughout the year, but while the northern coast enjoys a relatively stable and warm climate, the southern parts of the region are a little more unpredictable. Lower Saxony is at its most popular during the summer. If you want to make the most of the weather but avoid the crowds, June and July are the best months to visit, although the forests and plains are often spectacular in the autumn as well. Many visitors book a holiday home from the large selection available in Lower Saxony in December, in order to experience the legendary Christmas markets in any of the principal cities.
