The intimate yet intriguing town of Bad Fallingbostel boasts beautiful woodlands and an enthralling agricultural and military heritage. Traditional, timbered housed coexist alongside impressive churches, mineral enriched spas and archaic farmhouses. The close proximity of the British military barracks means Bad Fallingbostel enjoys a cosmopolitan influence while also retaining its rich, German culture; gastronomical delights and interesting architecture are testament to the prevalence of this captivating and charismatic culture.
The diversity of Bad Fallingbostel’s stunning sights is certainly an allure for many culture hungry tourists; the amalgamation of modern and classic architecture, exemplified by the St. Dionysis Church, in the town centre is an interesting vision. In terms of natural beauty, the nearby Luneburg Heath offers some of the most picturesque panoramas in Lower Saxony. The heath’s alternative allure is the Hof de Heidmark, a timber framed farmhouse that dates back to 1642 and still cultivates a typical Lower Saxon Farm. The ancient Treppenspeicher Barns commemorate the destroyed agricultural villages of the area.
