Typical landscape in Wiefelstede

A place of relaxation

Between woods and hedges

Outstanding flair – with its thatched and timbered houses and its sturdy brick buildings, Wiefelstede is just made for putting day-to-day cares behind you. So it’s no wonder that the officially recognised recreation town has twice won prizes in national and/or state “Beautiful Village” competitions. All this is further enhanced by the oxygen-rich, low-allergen and dust-free air that blows in from the North Sea, where the Jade bay is only 18 kilometres away.

Cycle tours in fresh, North Sea air

In May and June the flaming beauty of the blooming azaleas and rhododendrons creates an unforgettable experience. Two other typical features of the region are the impressive embankment hedges and the “Mansholter Busch” forest that stretches over some 800 hectares and makes Wiefelstede Ammerland’s most wooded region.

The local history museum

Varied leisure activities

If you’re interested in culture, it’s worth visiting Ammerland’s oldest church – St. Johannes church with its exquisitely carved winged altar-piece and Baroque organ. Two other highlights are the bakery museum in Wiefelstede and the local history museum “Haus von Wedel” with changing exhibitions.

Fun in the open-air swimming pool

An oasis for sports fans

In Wiefelstede there are heated open-air swimming pools, sports centres with playing fields, athletics grounds, tennis halls and courts, an 18-hole golf course and signposted horse riding paths. Additionally, you can find idyllic natural bathing spots where you can enjoy surfing, rowing, canoeing, fishing and swimming.
