The community of Wesertal consists of the tranquil holiday resorts Arenborn, Gewissenruh, Gieselwerder, Gottstreu, Heisebeck, Lippoldsberg, Oedelsheim and Vernawahlshausen. Situated directly on the Weser cycle path and the Weserbergland hiking trail, the Wesertal community impresses with its beautiful river and enchanting wooded landscape.
Wesertal for friends of fairy tails
Visitors can explore the idyllic half-timbered villages on the tracks of Puss in Boots, Brave Tailor Lin and Snow White.
In front of the town hall in Gieselwerder, the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves is depicted in an abstract form carved in stone.
At the parking lot of the Oedelsheim village museum, the figure of Puss in Boots welcomes all guests. He is taller than a man and armed with walking stick, sack and pack, entirely carved out of wood that wind and weather cannot harm. This may be a symbol for passing hikers on the fairytale road.
While hiking through the Reinhardswald, one stops at a little brook. A miracle takes is revealed here, the "water actually flows uphill..." This is how a poem describes the wondrous sight of the watercourse on the road to Gottsbüren. The phenomenon of the "water flowing uphill", which is probably unique in Germany, is based on an optical illusion worth seeing.
Wesertal for holiday tourists and day visitors
The indoor and outdoor swimming pool, the open-air exhibition Mühlenplatz, the monastery church, lovingly designed small museums and of course the Weser River offer the opportunity for various holiday activities. Jetties marked with the "Gelbe Welle" (yellow wave) welcome canoeists. Crossing the Weser on one of the 3 historic ferries provides you with a wonderful view, and lets you reach your desired destination quickly.
