Muhlenmuseum Gifhorn

Reviewed By ShySurvivor - Bournemouth, United Kingdom

The Mühlenmuseum in Gifhorn is one of a kind. If you are in Gifhorn it is a must to visit it at least once, The mills offer many kinds of interaction and you can even learn how to make your own bread. The visit there shows you the different kinds of mills all over the world and if that isn't interesting enough they are also very pretty to look at.

You can see windmills from all over different countrys. But its also just relaxing to stroll around in a beautiful park. For the russian church you pay extra but it is worth to go inside.

Nice lake near Wolfsburg and really a place worth visiting. Lots of possibilities of sports and a sandy beach of about 1 kilometre! We went there in bright Sunshine on a weekend in March and it was really a pleasant day!

Schloss Gifhorn (Gifhorn Castle)

Reviewed By mdun - Kildare

Attended a wedding reception in June, and every detail seemed perfect. The champagne welcome was held on a lower level, and the ballroom upstairs where the meal and dancing was held comfortably fit about 80 people with a dance floor, and serving tables. The features of the room added to the beauty of the photographs. It was light and spacious with historic charm.

Hier zahlt man gleich doppelt. Erst den Eintritt in den Windmühlenpark u. dann auch noch für eine Kirche extra. Braucht man nicht. Von außen auch ganz schön.

Europaeische Freiheitsglocke

Reviewed By Chileaficionada - Hamburg, Germany

The European Freedom Bell is on the ground of the "Bell Palace" just beside the large International Wind and Water Mill Museum. It was erected by a private association and shall remind and dun of the time of the cold war and the iron curtain and the peaceful "revolution" and coming down of Berlin wall and the German reunion.
It is impressive and thought-provoking.

Wellness Sauna Gifhorn

Reviewed By Stephanie Z - Braunschweig, Germany

Wir haben auf einen verregneten Sonntag mal eine andere Saunalandschaft ausprobieren wollen und sind hier gelandet. Insgesamt ist die Saunalandschaft ganz nett gestaltet, mit kleinen Mankos und leider etwas gedrungen, wenn bei schlechtem Wetter der Außenbereich nur bedingt benutzbar ist. Wir haben uns nur mäßig wohl gefühlt, so dass wir nicht zwingend wiederkommen würden. Preislich war die Sauna im Durchschnitt.
