    Dinosaur Park Münchehagen

    by Gerrem Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Discover the history of the earth along a 2.5 km trail. The outdoor exhibition is highlighted by about 150 life-size models of dinosaurs, including the terrible Allosaurus and the 45 m long Seismosaurus, the largest dinosaur Model on earth. The models illustrate the evolutoin of this fascinating group of extinct animals. The trackside is located halfwayalong the trail.

    In the year 1980 dinosaur tracks were found in the "Wesling" firm´s quarry east of Münchehagen near Rehburg. The tracks were discovered during a fire-brigade practice which laid open the bottom of the quarry. On this occasion deep prints were cleaned from mud, which were known but ignored until that day. After the cleaning it was stated that surprisingly nearly 250 prints existed. Also it became clear that the prints formed several tracks which seemed to be from dinosaurs, living here in former times.

    Lüneburg

    by tini58de Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lüneburg is an old Hanseatic Town, which got rich because of its salt deposits. It has beautiful old houses and a lovely atmosphere.

    When I visited, I was so surprised at the beauty of this medieval city - don't miss it! From what I heard, the Christmas market there must be VERY nice!

    Lüneburg is also the ideal starting point for excursions into the Lüneburg Heath, which is especially beautiful in late summer, when the heather is in bloom.

    Ostfriesland

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Moin, Moin ..is the way people greet each other in East Frisia.

    East Frisia is a very flat country and is a little bit similar to the neighboring Netherlands. So you can find windmills here, dikes, the North Sea and some wild East Friesian islands - this part of the country really is a wonderful spot for outdoor people!

    Einbeck

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Einbeck is the place of my childhood - I grew up here in this beautiful small medieval town, went to school here, graduated and came back regularly to visit my parents. It is for these good memories, but also for the truly wonderful architecture, that I put it as the number one must see activity for Lower Saxony.

    For more information, please have a look at my Einbeck page.

    Visit the Old Town of Oldenburg

    by DanielF Updated Nov 27, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The fourth city in Lower Saxony is Oldenburg (ca. 150 000 inhabitants), a city which has also had a brilliant history as capital of an extinct Grand Duchy. It is also the most important fluvial port in the State.

    The relatively large old town is mostly car-free and surrounded by the former moat and crossed by a network of canals and the river Hunte (picture 1). Among the monuments in Oldenburg, the former Residencial palace, today a museum, stands out with honour (picture two).
