Located right in the middle of a designated landmark area between Bremen, Worpswede and Fischerhude, the re-sort of Lilienthal offers a wide range of interesting leisure activities.
There are numerous cycle routes and walking trails that cut across scenic landscapes of rivers and meadows on the edge of the Devil's Moor. The village centre reveals St Marien, a former Cistercian convent church, whose foundation coincides with the order's early spread across Europe. The building also comprises an old monastic garden, at one time used by 18th-century astronomer J H Schroeter for his studies. Other key attractions include an open-air theatre stage, several local museums (Horse-Carriage Museum of Lower Saxony) and a number of exhibitions at the Murkens Hof arts centre.
