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 located in the heart of Lower Saxony, in the middle of the triangle between Bremen, Hamburg and Hanover. It´s known as cathedral city or horsemans town and town at the river called Aller.
Everywhere you go, you´ll encounter the history of the old bishop´s town. The name “Verden” is derived from a ford. This favourable location near the Aller, one of the most important trade routes in the past, was the reason why people settled here early.
