In the footsteps of important women
Lower Saxony has a lot to offer, including a rich history of women. This special treasure is presented to you by the initiative frauenORTE Niedersachsen of the Landesfrauenrat Niedersachsen e.V. (Lower Saxony Women's Council). On your discovery tours on the traces of historical women personalities in the towns and communities of the state, you can discover many a previously unknown, surprising and extraordinary thing in addition to the long-forgotten everyday. With the initiative frauenORTE Niedersachsen, whose original idea came from Saxony-Anhalt, the Landesfrauenrat Niedersachen e.V. is opening up new paths in cultural tourism.
Since the initiative was launched in 2008, 47 frauenORTE Niedersachsen (as of October 2021) have been created. More are in the planning stage. The Landesfrauenrat Niedersachsen e.V. has been able to win Daniela Behrens, Lower Saxony's Minister for Social Affairs, Health and Equality, as patron for its initiative.
