Holiday destination Elbe-Weser-Dreieck
Thanks to the central location between the cities of Hamburg and Bremen amidst the Elbe-Weser-Triangle, there is a wide range of leisure activities.
You should not miss a city trip to Hamburg to see the Hafencity with fish market, Speicherstadt, the Binnenalster (river), Hagenbeck Zoo, and musicals such as The Lion King and Tarzan. We also recommend visiting Bremen (Schnoor district, Weser promenade). You reach both cities within 30 to 40 minutes via the nearby Autobahn A1.
The area Altes Land and the pretty old towns of Buxtehude and Stade are approx. 30 to 40 km away, so are the Lüneburg Heath and the artist village Worpswede. Timmendorfer Strand at the Baltic Sea as well as Cuxhaven at the North Sea are 75 minutes from here.
Coming from Hamburg:
Autobahn A1 Hamburg to Bremen, take exit 47 in Sittensen, go straight across the intersection onto the ring road towards Zeven - Hansestraße - Eckerworth - turn right at the end of the road onto the Lindenstraße (L142) towards Zeven until you reach Groß Meckelsen. Turn right at the intersection to Klein Meckelsen and go straight for 1.8 km until you reach Dorfstraße 15 on your left (opposite from 'Gasthaus Klein Meckelsen').
Coming from Bremen:
Autobahn A1 Bremen to Hamburg, take exit 49 in Bockel, turn left towards Bremervörde onto Bockeler Landstraße (B71) up to Gyhum-Sick, then turn right to Elsdorf/Gyhum. In Elsdorf, turn left at the end of Molkerreistraße (K126) into Kirchweg and turn right after approx. 400 m into Mühlenstraße (K 126) to Sittensen/Rüspel. Continue to the intersection Groß Meckelsen/Kuhmühlen and turn right to Sittensen (L142) up to the intersection at the entrance to Groß Meckelsen where you turn left to Klein Meckelsen. Continue for 1.8 km until you reach Dorfstraße 15 on your left.
