Did you know that the Glockenstein stone in Seehausen is older than Bremen's Roland statue? Or that the Winkelhof in Strom was once a small fortress?
Information panels along the Bremen-Niedervieland Country Route tell you all about important events in the region's history, including how the docks, the industry on the opposite bank of the Weser and the cargo handling centre have developed over the years.
The QUIZ FOR ALL AGES provides cyclists with an extra challenge along the way. All the quiz questions relate to information that can be found on the panels and the answers are revealed on the next panel. It's a fun way to learn about the features of the landscape – such as dwelling mounds, ditches, trenches and dykes – and to find out how the land has been used.
There are numerous inns along the way where you can take a break, and interesting places to visit such as the listed church in Seehausen with its triptych altar. And at some of the farms, you can even buy local produce.
The Bremen-Niedervieland Country Route passes through the villages of Strom and Seehausen and is part of the Bremen Region Green Ring cycle route network. It mostly uses the same paths as the Weser Cycle Route and the Bremen Stadtrandweg (city periphery route).
