Camper tour through the five half-timbered towns: Duderstadt,Einbeck,Hann. Münden,Northeim,Osterode.

You start from Hann. Münden on the B3. Hann. Münden was first mentioned as a town in a document of Landgrave Ludwig III of Thuringia in 1183. Due to its favourable location on the three rivers and the granting of the "Stapelrecht" (right to stack) in 1247, the town quickly attained wealth and prosperity. Many buildings such as the magnificent Weser Renaissance town hall, St. Blasius Church and the richly decorated half-timbered houses reflect the wealth of this period.

Afterwards, you continue towards Göttingen. Göttingen's scenic location between the Weser Valley and the Harz Mountains makes many destinations accessible in a short time. There are numerous opportunities for recreation, sport and cultural experiences. Forests and river valleys offer the best conditions for hiking and cycling.

You continue to Duderstadt. Even from a distance, the silhouette of Duderstadt catches your eye. Over 600 half-timbered houses from the Gothic period to the present day characterise the medieval townscape of Duderstadt, which has been preserved in unique unity. The former 1700m-long town wall from the 13th century, together with the ramparts, ramparts and guards, formed an ingenious medieval fortification system.

The tour then continues in the direction of Osterode am Harz. History almost comes alive between the old town walls. Old half-timbered houses line the old town. Above the town, you can see the ruins of the old Welfenburg and St. Aegidien Church. The half-timbered houses, churches, cafés, restaurants and shops invite you to take a stroll. A regional weekly market is held on the Kornmarkt every Tuesday and Saturday morning.

Afterwards, the tour continues towards Northeim. The medieval townscape is characterised by around 600 townhouses of different style periods and predominantly half-timbered houses and the large Sadtkirche St. Cyriakus.

Your last stop is Einbeck. In the year (1368) Einbeck was already a cosmopolitan trading town in the Middle Ages. Around 1600, there were over 700 houses with brewing rights in the town, which still characterise its image today.
