Put together your own individual programme just the way you like it to include visiting the UNESCO World Heritage sites and finding out more about the local history and culture as well as enjoying the natural surroundings and recreational activities. Located just 30 kilometres from the state capital of Hannover, Hildesheim is nestled in between the lowlands of the Hildesheim Brde, the Leine and Innerste River valleys and the Leine hill country leading into the foothills of the Harz Mountains.

The centre of the region, the city of Hildesheim with its population of just over 100,000, was originally founded as a bishopric in the year 815. After that, it was Bishops Bernward and Godehard in particular who played an integral role in shaping the development of the city. Today, Hildesheim is a modern, vibrant city with so much to offer from the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites, to Egyptian exhibits of world renown, historical half-timbered buildings, a colourful cultural scene and attractive shopping opportunities. And everywhere you go, you get a sense of the rich history that

has made this city. But Hildesheim has more to offer than just culture a true city experience is combined with the beauty of nature. Parks, gardens, the green fortification walls around the city and lakes encourage visitors and local people alike to go and enjoy the great outdoors. The surrounding region also has a lot to offer in terms of holiday and recreational activities. Hikers and walkers will find exactly what theyre looking for in the region of Hildesheim enjoyable walks through the Leine hill country or along the medieval Kings Route


are very popular, not only with insiders. Interesting places and historic towns with half-timbered buildings can also be explored by bicycle, where youll find impressive architecture and a variety of different landscapes youre guaranteed to find great diversity in the region of Hildesheim. Underway on the Leine-Heide bicycle route, you can, for example, stop off at Marienburg Castle to take a look at how the royals lived in the 19th century or pay a visit to the Fagus Factory, an exceptional example of modern architecture; it was added to the UNESCO list of World Cultural Heritage in 2011. Bad

Salzdetfurth, a lovely little spa town nearby, focuses primarily on health and relaxation. Salt water and mud provide the traditional basis for therapeutic spa treatments in the TherapieZentrum der Naturheilmittel (Natural Remedies Therapy Centre). But the town also has an active, dynamic and vibrant side: some 10,000 visitors and 1,000 active cyclists flock to the races of the international mountain-bike elite in Bad Salzdetfurth each year. Find out more about the many different faces of the region of Hildesheim we look forward to seeing you here!



St. Marys Cathedral, St. Michaels Church and the Fagus Factory

vidence of past cultures, artistic masterpieces and unique natural landscapes, whose destruction would be an immeasurable loss for all of mankind the UNESCO list of World Heritage includes more than 900 natural and cultural landmarks around the world. Not just one, but three of these world heritage treasures can be found in the region of Hildesheim.


UNESCO World Heritage can now also be admired in Alfeld in June 2011, the Fagus Factory was the first modern industrial building to be added to the list of World Cultural and Natural Heritage. The Fagus-GreCon GmbH building was designed by Walter Gropius, the founder of the Bauhaus School it was the first large building to be built by this well-known architect. When company founder Carl Benscheidt commissioned the 30-year-old Gropius to design his new factory for shoe lasts in 1911, it clearly showed what incredible courage Benscheidt had. With his confidence in Gropius modern interpretation of architecture, he proved his good instincts in retrospect, the factory can be considered as the manifestation of the new objectivity. Using a design made of glass and steel and pillarless, completely glassed-in corners, which became the trademark of the new architecture, Gropius gave the three-storey clad building a


Fagus Factory Alfeld www.fagus-gropius.com, Tel. +49 (0)5181 7920

type of weightless elegance. It was a very unusual design for factory buildings at that time. With his first debut building, Gropius created a new style, thus smoothing the path for modern architecture. The name of the factory was derived from the Latin word fagus for beech or beech wood, the material used in the factory designed by Gropius to manufacture shoe lasts into the 1970s. The factory is still in use today in addition to shoe lasts, the Fagus Factory is now also involved in woodworking and engineering. As a project for the Expo 2000, the Fagus Factory was renovated and restored and now also houses a very impressive exhibition. On 3,000 m2 (approx. 32,000 ft2), the exhibition is devoted to the building and the companys history, the shoe fashions of the last century, the people at Fagus, solid woodworking and the forest as a habitat. The exhibition is open to the public daily. There is also a signed path for visitors so that they can tour the entire factory grounds. On request, groups can take part in tours that also take them into the actual production halls.



St. Michaels Church

1,000-year-old-rosebush seum offers a very special way to get to know Bernwards door on the first Sunday of each month with Music and Words about the porta salutis: from 11 am to 12 noon, a visit is free of charge, starting at 11:30 am, students stage a short musical-literary presentation of the bronze door. Christs pillar, which is also cast in bronze, has been lent out to St. Michaels Church as a symbol of the ecumenical spirit. The Hezilo chandelier can be admired in St. Godehards basilica. Other selected pieces of the rich art treasures from the Cathedral and the Cathedral Museum can be seen in international museums of renown. The legendary 1000-year-old rosebush, which blooms and grows at the apse of the Cathedral, and the cloister are still open to the public during the renovations.

The bishopric is proud to be home to not just one, but two World Cultural Heritage churches: St. Michaels Church and St. Marys Cathedral were both added to the list of World Cultural Heritage in 1985. St. Michaels Church is considered as one of the most beautiful examples of early Romanesque church architecture in Germany. Under the direction of Bishop Bernward, construction began in 1010, with St. Michaels Church built as a Benedictine monastery church. The church was finally completed in 1033. Today, whats perhaps most fascinating in the interior of the church is the monumental ceiling painting dating from the 13th century. The ceiling of the central nave is made up of 1,300 oak panels and depicts the lineage of Christ. What convinced the UNESCO committee in Hildesheims St. Marys Cathedral were the bronze castings, Christs pillar and Bernwards door, all unique achievements of Bishop Bernward, and the Cathedral Treasury. Taken together, St. Michaels Church, St. Marys Cathedral and the Cathedral Treasury provide unique insight into the design and decoration of Romanesque church buildings. Up until the bishoprics anniversary celebrations in 2015, St. Marys Cathedral is being extensively renovated to the tune of approx. 30 million euros and the neighbouring St. Antonius Church converted into the Cathedral Museum. Both will remain closed until August 2014. Some of the art treasures from St. Marys Cathedral, which are among the most impressive church treasures in all of Europe, can still be seen in Hildesheim during the renovations. Bernwards door is impressively on display in the Roemer- und-Pelizaeus-Museum. In co-operation with the University of Hildesheim, the mu-

HOLIDAY MAGAZINE HILDESHEIM 2012 | Immerse yourself in history


History comes alive in Hildesheim

ildesheim the young city with an old history. Many of its buildings are unmistakable evidence of the interesting history of the city. Such oddities as the Upended Sugarloaf and impressive half-timbered buildings such as the Wernersche House in the historic half-timbered district visualise what life was like many hundreds of years ago. The many churches in the city remind us of the significance of Christian values in Hildesheim.


Let yourself be immersed into the atmosphere of centuries long past anyone sitting on the historical market square today, sipping a delicious cup of coffee, and looking around at all the historical buildings that surround the Roland Fountain, will feel transported back in time to centuries gone by. The market square was reconstructed true to the original on the initiative of the citys citizens and with the help of a great many donations from 1984 to 1990. The Butchers Guildhall (Knochenhaueramtshaus) and the Bakers Guildhall (Bckeramtshaus) deserve special mention. These two half-timbered buildings were constructed on the basis of the original plans. The former Butchers Guildhall displays many elaborate details on its faade and has a very rustic, but very comfortable interior. 7,500 wooden nails were used to hold the beams together. Another eyecatcher on the market square is the Tempelhaus, with an architectural style that clearly evidences Oriental influence. Todays tourist-information office is now located in this former patrician villa. Looking at the elaborate faades of Rolandstift and Wedekindhaus and the Stadtschnke, the Rococo Building and the Wool Weavers Guildhall on the opposite side of the square, youd never believe that there is a modern concrete building on the inside. Thanks to these buildings, which were reconstructed with such skill and careful attention to detail, Hildesheim can honestly claim to have one of the most beautiful market squares in Germany.


Just a few metres away from the market square, youll also find the Upended Sugarloaf, a building that was also reconstructed according to original plans and was completed in 2010. Its name is odd, and its looks not less so: the half-timbered building on St. Andrews Square was already called the Upended Sugarloaf 500 years ago. The floor space available on the ground floor measures a mere 22 m2 (approx. 240 ft2), whereby each floor is larger than the one below it, so that the top floor measures almost double approx. 43 m2 (approx. 465 ft2). Up until its destruction in 1945, the Upended Sugarloaf formed one of the most unusual building complexes in German architectural history together with the neighbouring building, the richly decorated Pillar House. Reconstructing the historic half-timbered building dating from 1509, with each floor larger than the one below, was a real architectural challenge: the construction required 60 cubic metres of oak beams none the same as the next and each individually measured held together by 728 wooden nails. The half-timbered building is now home to a Hildesheim chocolate manufacturer and a coffee roasters the chocolate factory is on the top floor, while the chocolate and freshly roasted coffee is sold on the ground floor.

Philipp Werner, the original owner of the Werner House, was a secretary for the government of the Prince Bishopric of Hildesheim at a time when religious conflicts were often resolved in a violent way. Clashes between the supporters of the old and the new teachings shaped life as it was in those days in Hildesheim. Philipp Werner was considered as the spearhead of the counter reformation. He expressed his frustration with the situation at that time to his fellow citizens in pictures and inscriptions on the faade of his house. Werner died in 1609, while his house dating from 1606 has survived for centuries and is one of the most famous buildings in Hildesheims half-timbered district today. Its richly decorated faade with 29 pictures and inscriptions was elaborately restored from 2010 to 2011. The carved figures were given greater definition in shades of red and yellow; a luminescent blue and gold were also used. As a result, the listed Renaissance building now stands out impressively

from the neighbouring houses. But its not only the Werner House that is worth a look visitors to the city of Hildesheim should be sure to make time for a stroll through the half-timbered district between Brhl and Kelerstrae. This is where some 1,900 halftimbered buildings once stood. Today, the buildings that remain enable us to imagine how beautiful this old half-timbered district must have been so long ago. During the summer, the climbing roses are in bloom all along these streets, decorating the faades of the quaint old buildings. The Armoury (Waffenschmiedehaus), the memorial stone, a reminder of the persecution of the Jews, erected on the site of the former synagogue in Hildesheim or the Kehrwiederturm dating from 1465, a former city gate, are just some of the sights worth seeing in the half-timbered district. This area is bordered by the green fortification walls of the city and parks the perfect place to go for a leisurely walk.


Hildesheim, the city of churches churches and Christian values are still an important part of the bishopric today. In addition to the two World Cultural Heritage churches, more than 30 churches are evidence of the history of the city. St. Godehards, for example, in the half-timbered district, is also well worth a visit. The Pope honoured the significance of St. Godehards Church by bestowing the title of basilica minor on it in 1963. The Romanesque church was built by Bishop Bernhard in 1133 in honour of Hildesheims Bishop Godehard, who was canonised in 1131. The chancel dating from 1861 is colourful; Bishop Bernhards sepulchre is located in the centre. St. Andrews Church, with the highest church tower in Lower Saxony, is difficult to overlook. The impressive tower, which can be climbed, is 114.5 metres tall and was finally completed in 1889. St. Lamberts Church in Hildes-heims new city district (Neustadt) is the only late-Gothic hall church in Hildesheim and was rebuilt in 1952. Highlights here include the Peter-Pauls altar dating from around 1420 and the Baroque organ. The Mauritius Church on the Moritz Mountain (Moritzberg) is a treasure and a unique architectural monument in northern Germany at the same time because of its design as a columned basilica, which is not typical for the north. Following the Thirty Years War, during which the church was severely damaged, the columned basilica with a nave and two aisles was rebuilt in the style of the Baroque period, which is dominant in the interior of the church today. The idyllically situated Marienrode Convent, which was founded by Bishop Berthold in 1125, can be found on the way from Diekholzen to Neuhof, a district of Hildesheim. Today, individuals and groups are welcomed to experience tranquillity and contemplation in an atmosphere of spiritual serenity in the guest house.

The historical grounds are famous for their elaborately decorated convent church and the picturesque park with ponds and modern sculptures. Lamspringe Abbey was first officially mentioned in 872. Highlights include the Baroque decoration of the church, which is among the most artistically valuable in Lower Saxony. The flower pictures in the groined vaults were painted by Hieronymus Sies, as were almost all of the other pictures in the church. The wood carvings on the high altar, choir stalls, choir screen, pulpit and baptismal font were created by members of the Lessen family, a family of famous wood carvers from Goslar, the high altar by J. M. Grninger, a sculptor from Mnster. The magnificent organ dating from 1700 is one of the most beautiful in the dioceses of Hildesheim. The reliquary casket of St. Oliver Plunkett is located beneath the new altar. The Irish Archbishop died as a martyr in London in 1681.

Museums, Galleries and Theatre the cultural side of the region

he renowned Roemer- und-Pelizaeus-Museum is widely known for its collection of Ancient Egyptian treasures. What many people do not realise, however, is that there are also many small museums and galleries to be discovered in the region of Hildesheim. There is a lot to see anything from anti-snoring devices to stuffed sea monsters.


Center for World Music in Hildesheim Gallery in the Stammelbach warehouse

Some are real insiders tips, while others are so unusual that they are truly one-of-a-kind in all of Germany there are lots of interesting small museums and galleries to be discovered in the region of Hildesheim. The exhibits in the Museum of Snoring in Alfeld, for example, include nose clips, sleeping masks, chin straps, lotions, special pillows and other odd things. One thing is certain, however: when it comes to getting a good nights sleep, people can be quite resourceful. Oddities of a musical kind are presented in the Center for World Music in Hildesheim. 1,000 musical instruments, 45,000 recording mediums and 10,000 books from all over the world have been brought together in the competence centre for music ethnology. The unique range of instruments on display is particularly impressive to see. The small Computer Culture Museum in the Kulturherberge Wernershhe also has something interesting to offer. It presents the history of the computer. In a room 70 m2 (750 ft2) in size, mainframes like the PDP 12, the LGP 30 and the Zuse Z 25, along with Ro-

botron computers, home computers and video gaming consoles will transport you into the world of digital computing. Some spectacular exhibits will surprise you in the Heersum Museum of Local History (Heimatmuseum Heersum). A stuffed sea monster, mice houses and a pair of trousers once worn by Obelix these are all interesting props from ten years of a passion for the theatre presented by the Forum for Art and Culture. The Forum impresses audiences every year with theatre performances, during which up to 200 people from the different villages in the region of Hildesheim are on the stage. The gallery in the former bull stable at Bodenburg Castle is no longer an insiders tip. The Bad Salzdetfurth Art Society regularly shows international exhibitions here. The exhibition space of the gallery in the Stammelbach warehouse (Stammelbachspeicher) in Hildesheim is also unique with eight single and collective exhibitions a year, the two floors of the former warehouse, with 400 m2 (4300 ft2) each, are transformed into a gallery.



The aim of the men who founded the Roemer- und-Pelizaeus-Museum, Hermann Roemer (1816-1894) and Wilhelm Pelizaeus (1851-1930), was to present and communicate knowledge of how the world began, of old, mysterious cultures and of the native peoples in far-away places. What they created is one of the most important museums in Germany today. It is famous world-wide, mostly for its collection of Ancient Egyptian treasures: many unique exhibits tell the story of Egypts history from the beginnings to the Christian Middle Ages. Egypt is still often associated with the topic of death, even today. The new concept for the third and last part of the permanent Egyptian exhibition entitled Death in the Desert is devoted to this central theme. With the two other parts, which opened in 2008 and 2009, the exhibition goes full circle: The Old Kingdom tells about Egypts earliest history and its first golden age, while Life on the Nil depicts everyday life, the economy and the world of the temples. The new concept for the permanent exhibition uses many types of different staging, modern light installations and new media to enable visitors to experience these outstanding objects, some of which are one-of-a-kind, in a new way and transforms them into important witnesses of this impressive ancient civilisation. Other exhibitions take visitors on a journey back in time to the fascinating cultures of Central America or are devoted to the largest collections of Chinese porcelain in Europe.

Idyllic parks and gardens in the region of Hildesheim are popular places to spend time and go for walks. The Rosarium, an extensive rose garden that has been restored according to plans from the Baroque period, is the main attraction in the Magdalenen Garden and a real highlight while the roses are in bloom. The Magdalenen Garden is 800 years old, making it one of the oldest historical gardens in Lower Saxony. It is divided into three parts: the decorative garden with more than 1,800 roses, lawns and paths to stroll along, the orchard and a vineyard, which is cultivated by the Hildesheim Wine Convent. Anyone who is interested in finding out more about roses can pay a visit to the adjoining Rose Museum. Peaceful ponds, benches in protected corners and beautiful old trees can be found in the Ernst-Ehrlicher-Park in Hildesheim. The play area and sunbathing lawn around the rose labyrinth make the public park a popular place to meet. Mighty beech trees, chestnut, oak and linden trees and idyllic ponds are all part of the Park Walshausen near Bad Salzdetfurth. The park is approximately 20 acres in size and is based on the English garden concept. The Italian villa, the manor, was designed by Laves, the court master builder from Hannover, and built from 1828/29. The garden is open to the public from 1 May to 31 October on Fridays from 10 am to 6 pm. The Wrisbergholzen Castle Park, which belongs to the community of Sibbesse, features very old trees, ponds, a waterfall with a grotto and a tea temple built on a hill. The orange greenhouse, which was built in 1860, is also worth seeing. The park is open to the public on the second September weekend of every year, on Open-to-the-Public Monument Day. Beautiful ponds and a number of pieces of modern art grace the picturesque Lamspringe Convent Park, which is a public park. Six sculptures were created here during a sculptors symposium in 1984. Artists who have received a work stipend for a limited time live and work in the convent mill at the edge of the park. Simply let go and relax a walk through the 12-acre spa park in Bad Salzdetfurth is more than just a stroll past flower beds. The 250-yearold salt works will make you think you are at the seaside (see pg. 26).

Between Hiking Trails and Lakes

he great outdoors in the region can be experienced in many different ways. Hikers can retrace the steps of kings and emperors from the Middle Ages, follow the Laves Cultural Path or experience the forest with all their senses in the midst of the Leine hill country. Spending your leisure time out in the open can also be enjoyed at lakes and ponds and outdoor swimming pools.



This is a path in Derneburg that offers a very special experience to anyone who follows it a pyramid, a Doric temple and a glass house are all sights to be seen on the Laves Cultural Path around Derneburg Castle. Georg Ludwig Friedrich Laves created a landscaped park based on the English designs for the artistically minded Earl Ernst zu Mnster. A number of smaller buildings were added to the castle park. These unusual structures are now the attractions for the Laves Cultural Path today. The Laves Path goes directly along historical artificial ponds close to the Derneburg Castle, which were originally created centuries ago by Cistercian monks to breed fish. Today, they belong to the Paul-Feindt Foundation and are protected by law. The Derneburg ponds are the breeding place for many types of endangered birds. Approximately 185 bird species have already been observed there, including 98 types of breeding birds. From the shores, passers-by can see black-necked grebes, grey herons, great cormorants and many others right up close.

The medieval paths followed by German emperors and kings are the perfect place to go for more extensive hikes in the south of the region of Hildesheim. Passing by castles, fortresses and ruins, hikers and walkers can get a sense of what is was like to travel on the old riding and cart trails: Via Regis, the Kings Route, takes you through an impressively beautiful landscape from the royal court (Knigshof) in Brggen though the Seven Mountains (Sieben Berge) and the Sack Forest (Sackwald) via the Knigsdahlum Imperial Palace and on to the former Werla Imperial Palace. This cultural path documents the development of the countryside for more than 1,000 years. Information boards point out special geological features as well as economically and historically significant places that can be found to the left and the right of the route. A side trip to Lutter am Barenberge and to the Imperial Palace in Goslar is highly recommended. The Kings Route is approximately 88 kilometres long in total the connection to Goslar brings it up to a total of 100 kilometres.


A map of the hiking and walking trails in the region of Hildesheim is available in the tourist-information office. A brochure devoted exclusively to the Kings Route can be requested from the Wirtschaftsfrderungsgesellschaft Hildesheim Region (HI-REG) mbH.

he region has some very unique offers available to cycling tourists whether its a rest stop on the picturesque shores of the Innerste and Leine Rivers, a visit to one of the many cultural highlights, a beautiful view from the hills out over the broad expanses below, a picnic on the flat meadows of the northern German lowlands or a stroll through one of the many historical towns.

Fortresses and castles, museums and galleries, a diverse landscape in combination with culture cycling tourists in the region of Hildesheim can experience an unforgettable holiday. From longdistance, theme-oriented routes and circular routes to local bicycle paths and mountain biking there are cycling routes to suit every taste criss-crossing the region of Hildesheim in all directions. Following the well-signed routes, youll find exactly what you want peace and quiet or culture, or something suitable for families with children and routes that will put a glint in the eye of ambitious cyclists. Excellent networks and signed bicycle paths totalling 380 kilometres promise extraordinary outings. The main routes the Leine-Heide Bicycle Path (pg. 25), the Bicycle Path to Art and the Hildesheim Ring (Hi-Ring) are all perfect for a days outing and feature international art and culture, natural surroundings and the opportunity of seeing Hildesheim from some very special perspectives. Corresponding signage with logos on the main routes and signs to villages and towns and special destinations ensure that you always know where you are going. The Bicycle Path to Art is specially recommended for anyone interested in art and culture. This path, which is close to 58 kilometres in length, connects the five shorter

routes: the Water-Art Path, the Romantic Path, the Contact Art Path, the Art Moves Path (Kunst-beWEGt) and the Sculpture Path and goes from Sarstedt to Hildesheim and on to Bad Gandersheim. The Hi-Ring is a bicycle tour that you can take around the city of Hildesheim. The 45-km long circular route provides great views of the churches and UNESCO World Heritage sites in the city and of the surroundings. Each route can be pedalled within about four to five hours. However, it is advisable to plan more time to explore the many things you will discover along the way. There are also train stations close to all the main routes, so that it is also possible to travel parts of the route by train, if necessary.

Service tips for cyclists, lots of suggestions for possible tours, map material to download and GPS routes are available from the Hildesheim section of the General German Cycling Club (Allgemeine Deutsche Fahrradclub, Kreisverband Hildesheim) on the internet at www.hi-radtouren.de. Services, such as finding bicycle-friendly accommodation and cyclists packages, bicycle repair shops or bicycle rentals, getting the key to the free bicycle stalls and maps and information material, are available from the Hildesheim tourist-information office.



The Leine-Heide Bicycle Path is a total of 410 kilometres long and connects the low mountain range in the Leine hill country with the Lneburg Heath and the Hansiatic city of Hamburg. The approximately 55km long section of this longdistance route in the region of Hildesheim goes from south to north from Freden to Sarstedt and offers magnificent views of the Leine River valley and enchanting half-timbered villages and towns nestled in between the Sieben Berge. The route travels along such prominent ridges as the Ith, the Thster Berg, Sieben Berge or the Osterberg, without having to cross over them. The entire route can be pedalled in about five hours. In keeping with the motto of Away from the street down to the river, the route of the LeineHeide bicycle path in the region of Hildesheim was extensively optimised up until the end of 2011, so that the long-distance bicycle path will be more attractive than ever in the 2012 cycling season. Existing paths were expanded and improved or new paths were created to make cycling more pleasant with fewer obstacles in the future. In addition, new information signs indicate the way to sights, accommodation and restaurants along the way. The Leine-Heide Bicycle Path starts in Freden and passes through the region of Hildesheim. The half-timbered town of Alfeld, which is reached after about 12 kilometres is a good place to make the first stop its an El Dorado for explorers who really appreciate something special. Who would suspect that Alfeld was once the largest animal trade centre in the world? The Fagus Factory, the first example of modern industrial architecture designed by Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius in 1911 and added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites in 2011, is also well worth a visit (see pg. 6). The route continues in the direction of Gronau a distance of approximately 15 kilometres, which passes by two castles: Brggen Castle and Rheden Castle. From Gronau, with its town core dating from the Middle Ages, the next section of the route goes past Elze and on to Nordstemmen very easy to spot by the silhouette of the Marienburg Castle, which tops the Marienberg (see pg. 10). The last section of the Leine-Heide bicycle path in the region of Hildesheim about twelve kilometres leads to Sarstedt. The Sarstedt-Giftener lakes are highly recommended for a lengthy break; they are located close to the LeineHeide bicycle path (see pg. 23). Any cyclist interested in science will probably be drawn to Ruthe, Sarstedts smallest district. In an experiment unique in all the world, the Institute for Quantum Research of the University of Hannover is doing research on proving Einsteins theory of relativity. With its GEO600 gravitation wave detector, this research facility in Ruthe is unique in Germany and can be viewed by appointment. Cyclists can also explore the downtown area of Sarstedt, with its colourful flower beds and half-timbered buildings.

A combination of relaxation and recreational activities

ad Salzdetfurth, a spa town, is nestled in between the green hills of the Hildesheim Forest. This town combines long years of tradition with the modern in a very special way. Bad Salzdetfurth offers visitors a very diverse range of leisure-time activities whether youre looking for sports or just want to rest and relax. Its also not at all far from Hildesheim, which has many cultural tourist attractions to offer.


Bad Salzdetfurth, the only spa town in the region of Hildesheim offers you an opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, to just kick back and relax. In Bad Salzdetfurth, situated in the valley of the Lamme River in the heart of the Hildesheim Forest, you can see evidence of its more than 800 years of history at every turn. The state-certified mud and salt-water spa is situated beautifully in the gently rolling hills, green meadows and lush forests. Given the conditions of the surrounding countryside, the look of the town has not changed

much over the years. The spa town is filled with historical half-timbered buildings dating from the 17th century. Small shops, pubs and restaurants invite visitors to take a relaxing stroll and spend some time. As the name already says, salt (Salz) is inextricably linked to the history of the town. The legend tells of a Knight von Steinberg, whose horse dug down to a spring with its hooves at the foot of the Sothenberg, but the knight couldnt quench his thirst with the salty water. However, he is said to have realised at once that he had struck white gold, which would make

him rich. As a result, the large salt works from the 18th century are a special attraction in the spa town today. The salty water trickles through the high piles of brushwood and fills the air with salt. Inhaling the salty air in the salt works in the spa park is particularly beneficial for the upper respiratory tract. Majestic old trees border the park, reading and garden pavilions as well as benches on the broad expenses of lawn offer an opportunity to sit down and re-

lax and to observe how nature changes with the different seasons. The lovely rose and flower beds are beautiful to look at. The first bathing house was built in Bad Salzdetfurth in the middle of the 19th century. Since that time, visitors who appreciate the healing powers of salt and natural mud come from near and far. The Bad Salzdetfurth spa company has four different types of medicinal water sources available to provide a wideranging offer (see pg. 28 and 29).

Active, dynamic, vibrant a visit to Bad Salzdetfurth is not only for those seeking relaxation. Active people will find many different opportunities in the realm of sports activities to enjoy in their leisure time. The forested hills in the foothills of the Harz Mountains, for example, attract hikers, cyclists and mountain bikers to enjoy a relaxing days outing. But more ambitious tours can also be taken in Bad Salzdetfurth and the surrounding area. At the initiative of a number of sport enthusiasts, the town has developed into an important centre for mountain biking in Germany in the past few years. Some 10,000 visitors and 1,000 active cyclists flock to the races of the international mountain-bike elite in Bad Salzdetfurth each year. Treasure hunters can follow GPS-supported routes: the White Gold treasure hunt takes you through the old part of Bad Salzdetfurth and has developed into a real crowd puller. You can go on another GPS treasure hunt by bicycle, during which you hunt for field gold along a 20-kilometre stretch. With a treasure map in hand, the participants are guided through fields and meadows to different stops, where they have to answer tricky questions. GPS-supported hikes and bicycle tours in the surrounding area can also use Bad Salzdetfurth as their starting point. The Bad Salzdetfurth Guide is available on the towns homepage; it contains many different hiking and bicycle routes and can be downloaded free of charge. Portable navigation devices and many Smartphones are able to do the job. More than 100 kilometres of trails and approximately 1,200 kilometres of cycling tours can be found in the portal and pro-

vide users with reliable directions through the fields and forests. Anyone who doesnt have a GPS device for the download can borrow one in the tourist information office. Lovers of more sedate types of sport might like to play a round of golf at the Golfclub Bad Salzdetfurth-Hildesheim. The 18hole golf course is one of the most beautiful courses in Lower Saxony. Situated picturesquely in the hilly oak and beech

woods, golfers have a wonderful view of Bad Salzdetfurth and Hildesheim. Would you like to just take off and leave everything behind? The feeling of freedom is boundless above the clouds visitors to Bad Salzdetfurth can

see for themselves by booking a flight on a glider. At the gliding airfield in Wesseln, a part of Bad Salzdetfurth, you can book a ride on the passenger seat of a two-seater glider or a power glider and enjoy a birds eye view of the area.

HOLIDAY MAGAZINE HILDESHEIM 2012 | Therapie Centre for natural remedies


The focus is on everything to do with health and well-being in the Therapy Centre
The Therapy Centre for Natural Remedies (TherapieZentrum der Naturheilmittel) in Bad Salzdetfurth offers an opportunity to find a balance for hectic everyday life, to find peace and the time to just let your thoughts drift and many different ways to do something positive for your own well-being. Salt water and mud packs form the traditional basis of the therapies available at the Therapy Centre. Combined with other types of therapy and this refers first and foremost to the physical therapies from traditional massage to connective tissue and underwater massage, lymphatic drainage, physiotherapy and right on up to light, cold, heat and electrotherapy mud packs and salt water treatments can be all the more effective. With its natural remedies, the Therapy Centre offers the most comprehensive range of physical therapies, physiotherapy and wellness in the region of Hildesheim. The Therapy Centre can look back on long years of service: in 1850, right in the middle of the transition from feudalism to industrial capitalism, a number of inhabitants of Salzdetfurth had the bold idea of using the mineral-rich salt water won not only to produce salt but as a natural remedy as well. The recovery of white gold was declining in importance and the salters saw an opportunity for extra income in operating a bathing house. The salt works built in 1746 to improve salt production had already been drawing visitors to Salzdetfurth for a long time. They enjoyed the salty air and discovered the healing qualities particularly for respiratory illnesses. Inhaling the salty air in the salt works in the spa park is particularly beneficial for the upper respiratory tract. The fine salt crystals are able to loosen mucus and phlegm, which clears the respiratory system of bacteria and eases the swelling in the mucous membranes. This is particularly beneficial to people allergic to pollen and asthma patients. In 1856, the first bathing house was built in Bad Salzdetfurth the salt water was also used to remedy other ailments, such as circulatory disorders, skin and mild cardiovascular problems. It wasnt long before the business was thriving and the health spa was opened in 1857 as a result. The natural peat moss from the

Luttrum bogs was added to the list of natural remedies in 1952. The peat moss contains valuable humic acid and is still used today for such illnesses as arthritis, osteoarthrosis, spinal problems and for rheumatic diseases, gynaecological problems and infertility. Mud baths and packs are effective because their warmth stimulates the skin to release toxics and absorb minerals. Mud has a positive effect on the immune system and stimulates the metabolism. It is antiinflammatory, detoxifying and helps to keep your hormones in balance.

Therapie Centre for natural remedies | HOLIDAY MAGAZINE HILDESHEIM 2012

The two traditional natural remedies, salt water and mud, still form the basis of the treatments offered by the Therapy Centre. However, natural remedies are just one part of the treatments available today. In the salt-water outdoor and indoor swimming pools, guests enjoy the beneficial effects of the three-percent salt water because the human body reacts positively to salt water. Doctors refer to this as vegetative reactions. The salt penetrates horny skin, whereas water is only absorbed in small quantities. The salt has no chemical effect on the skin, but the protein in the skin cells is broken down more quickly and the rate at which the cells divide is increased. This results in a so-called rejuvenation effect. Because of the greater buoyancy, its easier to swim in the salt water pool, which has a salt content of 3 percent and a temperature of 30 to 33 C. Muscles relax, the circulatory system is stimulated and blood flow improves. In addition to the indoor pool, there is also a large outdoor pool its a real pleasure to swim in the warm water outside in the

cold seasons of the year. Underwater massage jets, a pool for water treading and cold arm baths outdoors improve your sense of wellbeing. The generously sized quiet zone with lounge chairs and the lovely patio and sunbathing lawns outside in the summer are all the more reason to relax and stay a while. Relaxation along with the opportunities to take advantage of health treatments can be found in the 5-star saunas in the salt water outdoor and indoor swimming pools. With five different saunas from the traditional Finnish sauna to the Kelo earth sauna and the Kelo hexagonal sauna, the steam bath and Roman steam bath Salzdetfurth offers a wide range of enjoyment in a pleasant atmosphere. The Therapy Centre includes the traditional natural remedies of salt water and mud to improve your physical, mental and emotional relaxation in modern forms of therapy and wellness treatments.

HOLIDAY MAGAZINE HILDESHEIM 2012 | General Agency Terms and Conditions


These General Terms and Conditions apply for contracts concluded between the customer and the Hildesheimer Marketing Gesellschaft mbH, represented by tourist-information Hildesheim (TI), as agents for travel services such as accommodation and city tours. 1 Conclusion of contract (1) The booker/user (customer) sends a binding order for the conclusion of an agency contract to us for the desired services (events) using electronic booking/commissioning via the NetHotels information and reservation system. At the same time, this entails the binding order of the customer to the contract partner of the contract arranged by us (organiser) for the conclusion of the agency contract; insofar we are authorised by the organiser to accept declarations and conclude contracts on his behalf. (2) If the order is not sent electronically via the NetHotel portal, this constitutes a non-binding inquiry. The customers order is then made on the basis of documents sent to him by us. (3) Concluding a contract does not require any specific form. The declarations can be made in written, verbally, by Tel., by fax, by email or using any other electronic means. For orders that are submitted to us electronically, we will acknowledge the receipt of the order immediately; this acknowledgement, however, does not constitute a confirmation of the agency contract. (4) The agency contract is not officially concluded until we issue our confirmation. (5) There is no travel contract in the sense of the Travel Contract Act between the customer and us. We act only as the agent to close the contract between the customer and the organiser. The mutual rights and obligations of the contract concluded apply exclusively to the customer and the organiser. The agency contract concluded with the booking applies to that booking only. As a result, it is not possible to combine different travel services. An independent, separate agency contract must be concluded in each case. The agency contracts concluded are also separate from one another. The rights and obligations ensuing remain unaffected by one another. 2 registration liability If the customer registers other persons other than him/herself for the event, he/she is responsible for the contractual obligations of all the persons registered insofar as he/she has made a separate declaration as such at the time of registration. 3 Contractual obligations of the agency agreement (1) Our contractual obligations depend on the contract concluded with the customer as an agency contract taking into account these General Terms and Conditions and consist of carrying out the actions necessary to perform the agency contract, the corresponding advising and the provision of the necessary travel documents, insofar as these are not provided by the organiser directly to the customer. (2) Insofar as we provide the customers with advice, we are liable only within the scope of the law and the contractual agreements between the customer and us for the correct selection of the information source and the correct communication to the customer. The same applies for the provision of information. An information contract above and beyond this with a contractual primary obligation for provision of information comes about exclusively as a result of an express agreement between the customer and us. 4 Supplementary provisions for the provision of accommodation (1) General terms and conditions 1. The price charged for the travel arrangements is to be paid directly to the organiser. 2. The mutual rights and obligations of the contract concluded between the customer and the organiser also apply here only according to the agency contract provided by us. The General Terms and Conditions of the organiser apply insofar as these have been included in the contract. 3. The other provisions included in this section apply only for the provision of rooms of the commercial and private organisers that are connected to our booking system and for the accommodation that is booked using this system. The organisers listed on the NetHotel portal are all connected to the booking system. We act as agents for the accommodation of these organisers only. These supplementary provisions do not apply to any other agency activities. 4. The General Terms and Conditions of the organiser apply insofar as effective in the contract and the following supplementary provisions only in addition. (2) Arrival time, no-show 1. The organiser concerned is only obliged to hold the reservation for the accommodation booked until 6 pm on the day of arrival, insofar as no other arrival time has been arranged between the customer and the organiser. In the event of a no-show, the organiser is entitled to give the accommodation booked to a third party; in this case, the customer loses his/her claim to the accommodation. This does not apply if the customer has indicated a later arrival at the time the order was placed or if the order is placed on the same day as the day of arrival. 2. If the accommodation booked is not assumed by a third party, the organiser is entitled to claim a flat rate of up to 80% of the arranged travel price. The flat rate depends on the type of accommodation booked and the additional services requested. 3. The flat rate charged depends on the claim of the organiser towards the guest with the deduction of his regularly saved expenses. The customer is entitled in any case to bring evidence to reduce this claim. (3) Withdrawal (cancellation), rebooking 1. The customer can withdraw from the contract (cancellation) with the organiser at any time. 2. The cancellation is free of charge for the customer up to 30 day before the beginning of the trip. After that, the organiser is entitled to calculate the charges for the no-show. 3. Requests for rebooking or cancellations can be forwarded to us in writing. If it is possible for us to accommodate the wishes of the customer, he/she will receive a separate confirmation. Otherwise, the customer will be informed that the request was rejected. For rebooking or cancellation, we will charge a fee of 5.00 for each contract arranged and affected by the rebooking. 4. Insofar as the original contract has to be cancelled partially or in full by a rebooking, the organiser is entitled to charge the damages flat rate for cancellation or no-show. This will be charged in addition to the rebooking fee. 5 Supplementary provisions for the provision of events that are provided in the form of guided tours


General Agency Terms and Conditions | HOLIDAY MAGAZINE HILDESHEIM 2012

(1) Guided tours depend on a minimum number of participants. We take this into consideration in our role as agents. Here, we act merely as the agent for the contract to be concluded between the tour guide as the organiser and the customer for the tour in question. This contract can only be concluded when the minimum number of participants has been reached. Hereinafter, these will be referred to as closed guided tours. (2) Excepted from this are the regular city tours offered by Hildesheimer Stadtfhrer-Gilde e.V., which are mentioned separately in the agency agreement or in the description of the services provided. In this case, we are also only the agents. The contract for the guided tour concerned is then completed between the customer and the Gilde, which has its members conduct these guided tours. Hereinafter, these will be referred to as open tours. (3) Non-attendance, withdrawal (cancellation) 1. The customer can withdraw from (cancel) tours with the tour guide or us at any time. Closed tours can only be cancelled up to one day before the beginning of the event free of charge. Thereafter or if the customer is a no-show, the customer is obliged to pay the price of the guided tour in full. Any fees paid to us in advance (e.g. admission fees) or for fees paid to us for the organiser will be reimbursed to the customer if said services were cancelled in time. 2. The fee to be paid to the tour guide for these services becomes due with the conclusion of the agency contract. Any admission fees unless otherwise expressly arranged as an exception are to be paid by the customer on location and are not included in the event price. 3. We are authorized to accept fees arranged with the customer from the customer in the name of and for the account of the tour guides we represent or the Gilde. The customer receives a written receipt as proof of payment to the tour guide. The tour guide is entitled to provide services only upon production of the receipt by the customer. 4. The tour guide engaged is not obliged to conduct the guided tour, even for closed guided tours, personally. He/she is at liberty to designate a substitute, even without prior notice. All the tour guides used by our agency have to fulfil our quality requirements. The tour guide is obliged to designate only the persons accepted by our agency as a substitute. 6 Complaints (1) Any complaints or other claims resulting from the contracts for which we acted as agents are to be made directly to the contract partner of the agency contract. A notice made to us will not suffice to honour any deadlines, nor are we authorized to accept such notices for the organiser nor are we obliged to forward such documents to the organiser. On the basis of the agency contract closed with the customer, we are only obliged to supply the customer with all the information and documents that are important to him/her to assert the claim or complaint. (2) We are also not obliged to advise the customer on his/her claims against the organiser or to notify him/her of any deadlines that have to be observed. 7 Liability, limitation of liability (1) We are not liable for any claims that result from the agency contracts we provide. This also applies to the any deficiencies in

the services provided and any injury or property damages that the customer has occurred in connection with the event provided, insofar as we have not expressly declared our liability. (2) This does not affect a liability resulting from the agency contract concluded between the customer and us. For damages due to slight negligence by us or one of our legal representatives or vicarious agents, these damages will be limited to foreseeable damages typical for contracts and three times the sum of the event price. For damages that are not the result of the violation of major contract obligations, the liability is limited to intent and gross negligence. Liability resulting from the agency contract for personal injury remains unaffected. 8 Statute of limitations / deadlines (1) Any customer claims resultant from the agency contract concluded with us are to be indicated within one month (deadline). The deadline begins with the customers knowledge of the reason for such a claim, but at the earliest with the end of the agency contract term of the agency contract. (2) This does not apply if the customer is not at fault for missing the deadline. (3) Any such claims made against the organiser do not serve to keep the deadline. (4) All customer claims against us fall under the statute of limitations of one year (shortened statutory limitation). Exceptions to this are claims in tort. 9 Data privacy The data communicated to us by the customer will be collected, stored and processed electronically, for the automated process as well. We are entitled to use this data within the scope of our agency contract and to forward it to the operator insofar as this is necessary to fulfil the purpose of the contract. 10 Place of performance, applicable law, legal venue (1) German law applies exclusively to all legal relations between the customer and us. (2) For all disputes resultant from the legal relations between the customer and us, insofar as the customer is a business person, a legal person according to private or public law or persons who have their place of residence or usual place of residence abroad or whose place of residence or usual place of residence is unknown at the time of the commencement of a suit, Hildesheim is the exclusive legal venue or, if applicable, the court responsible for the city of Hildesheim. In other cases, the legal venue will be determined according to the legal regulations. 11 Severability Clause Should any individual provisions of these General Terms and Conditions be or become invalid in full or in part, this does not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. Insofar as a provision has not become part of the contract or is invalid, the legal conditions apply.
