Picturesque fairy-tale town of Buxtehude, where the hare and the hedgehog once raced each other
The Hanseatic city is located in the vacation region "Altes Land am Elbstrom" in the metropolitan region of Hamburg, which can be reached in half an hour by suburban train. It is known as the city where dogs bark with their tails and hares and hedgehogs race. With the saying "Ick bün al hier" (I'm here all the time), you will learn stories and anecdotes about Buxtehude with a lot of charm and esprit on the city tours of the tour guides in rabbit and hedgehog costumes. Man-sized, individually designed hare and hedgehog figures cavort in the city center. Maritime flair wafts through the historic old town with its many half-timbered houses. Buxtehude was the first German city to be built according to plan around a central harbor basin.
