Located on the River Aller, a tributary of the Weser, Verden is often referred to as the western gateway to the Lüneburg Heath.
Verden is a small town at the heart of Lower Saxony, within easy reach of Bremen, Hamburg and Hannover. With its cathedral, equestrian traditions and location on the Aller river, Verden has something for everyone.
Discover more than 1,000 years of history at the Domherrenhaus museum, at the cathedral, at one of the many smaller churches, in the town centre, in the fishermen's quarter or on the Aller river, and on the Sachsenhain tour of ancient stones.
