  • Stadtkirche - Town church (or main...

    Rotenburg’s main church was first built in the 12th century, but was pulled down after the Swedish took over the town. This was in 1648 when the Swedish expanded the castle and built a new church on the current place. This church was replaced in 1862 by the current neogothic building.

  • Paar-oh-die fountain on new market...

    Paar-oh-die is a wordplay with the worlds “parody” and “pair oh that”. This strange looking, modern fountain is subject to many discussions and is said to be known outside of Rotenburg too. I didn’t know this fountain before, but I still remember it as one of the starngest pieces of art I ever saw. Perhaps, that’s the intention it has…

The land next to the museum is the place where once a castle stood. Only a few...

  • Tor zur Stadt – gate to the town

    Normally, a city gate is an old structure, a part of history. In Rotenburg, it is a modern sculpture – standing on the place of a real former city gate. The two stones with a height of approximately 9 meters have both a piece of metal on their top, creating an interesting effect when the sun shines on it.

  • Rotenburg's town hall

    Normally, the town hall is one of the most impressive and beautiful buildings of a town – not so in Rotenburg/Wuemme. The town hall of Rotenburg was built in the second half of the 20th century and looks like an average office building. But there is a small detail worth to mention - a plastic called “7 Sparx fuer R.”. Seven neon illuminated pieces...

    Rotenburg is well connected to Hamburg and Bremen. All regional trains (Metronom –ME) between these two cities stop at Rotenburg with a train per hour in every direction. Some addition regional trains to Bremen (RB – Regionalbahn) are also available. There are also services from Rotemburg to Uelzen, but only a few times a day. This service was part of the so-called America-line, a train route between Berlin and the sea port of Bremerhaven. After planes took over overseas passenger service, the most northern part of this line (Rotenburg – Bremerhaven) was closed.

    Favorite thing: The culture path leads you through the town center of Rotenburg along 24 of Rotenburg’s most interesting places. It is marked by red signs and red boards with the boards containing some information about the sight as well as a town map. Tha path is approximately 6 kms long and is a nice way to get through Rotenburg. Unfortunately, all information is in german…
