Oberhaverbeck – Wilsede
20 minutes by bike
By foot a good hour, with children probably 1:30
For children 5+
When the weather is beautiful (and lets hope that the coming holidays will provide for some late warm sunrays) you can undertake a trip to one of the most famous tourist attractions around Hamburg! We have made this tour last year: we went by car to Overhaverbeck (about 45 minutes drive from Hamburg), parked there, rented some bikes at Stimbekhof (call them before going – or bring your own bikes along) and cycled to Wilsede on car-free roads in the midst of the rolling hills of the – now in full violet blossom – “Heide”. The way to Wilsede, a museum village with two nice restaurants, is always signed transparently. I recommend to order the special lamb dish “Heidschnucke”, enjoy a hot chocolate and tea on their beautiful terasse with a great view, and then cylce back. Before going home we’ve made a stop at Overhaverbeck at Cafe Bockelmann and ate gigantic, most delicious cakes!
Driving back over the motorway, I remember clearly dreaming of a night with my hubby in the lovely hotel just opposite the Cafe Bockelmann (I mean without kids!). Never get to doing it though. So far.
