Sights and trips

Verden is known for its long history in horse riding contests and different World Championships concerning horses in a variety of disciplines. In Verden you also find the Headquarter of the famous Hannoveraner Horse Breeding Association.


It's also known for its historic old town with beautiful facades at the middle age houses. 

A shopping area with many small stores offers a variety of products, even connected to the town and its tourism as for example home made chocolate.


The two main museums are the German Horse Museum and the Domherrenhaus, showing the towns history and an exhibition of working and living in Verden in the 18th and 19th century.


Several parks will make your stay fun! Stay a day at the Magic Park Verden (for smaller kids), the World Bird Park in Walsrode, the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen or the Wolf Center in Dörverden. Or why not make a boat trip on Aller and Weser or to Bremen? The old hanseatic town is worth more than a one day visit and only in 35 km distance.
