Leisure-time in the Ammerland
Be active in the most beautiful nature idyll
In spring the Ammerland shows its most beautiful side: Rhododendrons and azaleas – everything blossoms. As colourful as the spring fresh rhododendron’s blossom in the Ammerland as diverse are the leisure possibilities which Westerstede offers for an eventful holiday in East Frisia. The city’s appealing location in the unique park landscape of the Ammerland in the midst of large forests, juicy green meadows and waving corn fields makes this city an outstanding cycling region.
The officially recognised resort town in the northwestern part of Lower Saxony has a lot to offer: Wonderful walks through the rhododendrons’ parks in Westerstede or Wiefelstede. Cheerful family excursions with the draisine, a “bicycle on rails”. And if ever the sun doesn’t shine, jump into the refreshing water of the Hössen public swimming pool. That’s fun for the youngest, just as our guided city tour for children through Westerstede and the annual Christmas fairytale. A visit to Westerstede will be rewarded by: a nature adventure and good humour for the whole family.
