Suggested excursions

Hamlyn Pied Piper open-air play, copyright Hameln Marketing und Tourismus GmbH
Marienburg is the family seat of the Guelph dynasty. The current head of the family, Prince Ernst August of Hannover. has opened up part of his castle to visitors. The Pied Piper town of Hamlyn, the medieval town of Celle, Lüneburg Heath, the Harz mountains and VW's Autostadt automotive exhibition complex at Wolfsburg with its displays and attractions make ideal excursions from Hannover.
Marienburg Castle
The castle and the land upon which it sits were a present from blind King Georg V of Hannover to his wife Queen Marie on her birthday. Marienburg Castle was rebuilt between 1857 and 1867 in the neo-Gothic style. Today, visitors wearing felt slippers tour the rooms where they can marvel at the castle's history and family treasures of the House of Hannover.
Hamlyn is known for the story of the Pied Piper. It became wealthy as a result of its favourable location as a trading centre on the River Weser. This wealth was reflected in its lavishly decorated houses, and the town became a jewel of the Weser Renaissance style.
Medieval town of Celle
On the southern edge of Lüneburg Heath is the enchanting medieval town of Celle with its well-preserved centre of more than 500 timber-framed buildings and the 13th century ducal palace. Celle combines vibrant modern-day life with the tradition of a medieval town.
