The charming town with beautiful half-timbered buildings and Renaissance gables, looks back on 1000 years of history. Nienburg rises idyllically on the Weser with a view of the Wesermarsch and the Geestrücken. Many legends, fairy tales and stories are entwined around the historic old town. In the slightly hilly North German Plain, families with children feel especially at home when cycling or hiking. The Weser Cycle Route R1, one of the most popular long-distance cycle routes, runs through the middle of the city. In addition, the Wolfcenter Dörverden and the Weser with the passenger ships "Flotte Weser" attract in the near vicinity. Europe's most beautiful weekly market offers regional products; in spring, everything is under the sign of the flower market and asparagus cultivation.
