Hermannsburg – the perfect place for vacation

Hermannsburg is a place in the middle of the southern Lüneburg Heath with a story of more than 1.000 years. The wonderful forest and heath landscape will fill you with enthusiasm. The municipality is named after its founder Hermann Billung and a castle that was probably located where the cemetery is today. It was founded in 94, when several farmers and tradesmen settled between the church and the castle. With that, the political and religious municipality Hermannsburg developed. The Billung family reigned over the region until 116, during the Prussian reformation Hermannsburg was assigned to the administrative district Celle.

In the 19th century, Hermannsburg gained in importance and obtained a worldwide reputation when the pastor Ludwig Harms founded the Hermannsburger Mission in 1849. First, he sent missionaries to Africa and later to other continents. Because of that, there are cities in South Africa and Australia that are named Hermannsburg. The development of Hermannsburg is closely linked to the development of the nowadays Lutheran-Protestant missionary station in Lower Saxony.

In 1973, Hermannsburg celebrated its millennium. Hermannsburg is separated by the river Örtze and the Örtzepark and counts with its five parts Baven, Beckedorf, Bonstorf, Oldendorf and Weesen 8.500 inhabitants.  The peaceful location and the rural orientated environment are ideal conditions for a relaxing holiday in the nature. Therefore, Hermannsburg and the area around the municipality are predestined for hikes in the nature park Südheide/ Lüneburg Heath, bicycle tours or a trip with a horse carriage. Take advantage of the broad offer be part of an organized guided tour. Besides that, the Lüneburg Heath is probably the region with the most nature and amusement parks in Europe, which you should not miss!
