Polle - enchantingly historical in the midst of the picturesque Weserbergland
The enchantingly historic Cinderella town of Polle lies where the Weser makes its legendary great bend. This is where the Weser Valley Road, the German Fairytale Route and the "Weser" long-distance cycle route meet. The town of Polle is a member of the joint municipality of Bodenwerder-Polle and lies between the Münchhausen town of Bodenwerder in the north and the district town of Holzminden in the south. In the picturesque centre of the village there are historical residential buildings and other architectural monuments such as the Protestant church of St. George, built in Renaissance style in the 16th century. The restored castle ruins of the Counts of Everstein are enthroned high above the Weser Valley and can be seen from afar.
Polle for friends of fairy tales
Flecken Polle has been a member of this bewitching road since the foundation of the German Fairytale Route. Cinderella has been officially at home in Polle since 1995, and one year later the Cinderella play started to be performed every third Sunday of the year from May to September at 2:15 pm. Everything else revolves around Cinderella as well. In 2009, a "Cinderella Room" was set up in the Guest House, which attracts more visitors during the times when there are no performances, and the Cinderella Route around the castle was inaugurated in May 2013. Here young and old can discover the stove, the dovecote and Cinderella's golden shoe. The printed fairy tale published by Reclam-Verlag with the original text of the Brothers Grimm can be read at a total of three stations. The illustrations of the fairytale signs along the way come from the Cinderella book richly illustrated with themes from Polle by the artist Markus Lefrancois from Kassel.
Polle for holiday tourists and day visitors
In addition to the romantic castle, where you can occasionally meet the historically symbolic figure of Count Otto von Everstein and his wife Lutgard von Schladen when being led around the castle, Polle has even more to offer. Numerous hiking and cycling trails as well as excursion possibilities and leisure activities such as trips on the Weser with boats of the "Weser Fleet" or crossing with the largest reaction ferry of the Weserbergland, the Golf Club Weserbergland with its unique concept "Golf-Art-Land", the solar-heated outdoor pool, tennis courts of the FC Eintracht Polle and much more guarantee an active holiday. Changing exhibitions of regional artists in the Haus des Gastes, the small but fine museum "Burg Polle", theatre performances on the open-air stage for children and adults, the Cinderella play, the nationally known pumpkin market and the Cinderella Advent Market under the largest Advent Candle in Northern Germany round off the offer.
