Characterised by its luscious meadows, ancient trees and mysterious moors, the town of Bad Zwischenahn’s landscape is reminiscent of a painting from the Romantic era. Blooming flowers invade the parks during the summer to create a colourful spectacle that will uplift and energise. The lovely Lake Zwischenahner Meer is a glittering vision that exudes calm and tranquillity; the grassy banks are a perfect place to picnic while the depths can be swam in or sailed upon. Restore mind, body and soul in this tranquil spa town while soaking in the strong, unspoiled ancient culture.
The town’s most alluring landmark is the stunning white sight of the Ekerner Mill; destroyed by flames in 1910, the architectural monument has been lovingly rebuilt and is now venerated as a historical symbol, as well as used for art exhibitions and cultural events. Ascension of the town’s 35m Water Tower will afford energetic climber panoramic vistas of the surrounding moors and meadows, while aesthetic delights can be found in the Altes Kurhaus, an antique heritage building surrounded by manicured parks and gorgeous gardens.
Immerse yourself in the agricultural traditions of bygone days at the Frilichtmuseum Ammerland Farmhouse, a traditional and timbered structure that gives insight into functioning farms of the past. 14 houses and outbuildings are scattered across an idyllic park landscape, complete with costumed guides who will truly transport you to the past.
The town’s regional specialities are smoked eels, freshly steamed kale and sweet Schnapps, a unique and ubiquitous culinary combination in Bad Zwischenahn. An authentic eatery to enjoy these delectable delicacies is Ahrenshof Restaurant, a cosy, rustic restaurant that enjoys a verdant location amongst the parkland.
