Lower Saxony




A breath of fresh air in the north

Where once ships were unloaded, goods were weighed and duties paid, waiting to continue their journey, is now home to small specialist shops, cosy pubs and cafes with inviting summer terraces right by the waterside.

The Hanse port in the heart of the attractive Old Town with the typically Frisian ketch-rigged sailing ship “Willi” or the nearby city harbour with the museum ship “Greundiek” and the sportsmen’s boats moored there show that Stade continues to maintain its traditional ties to water and shipping.

Just how lively and well-restored the Old Town still is can be seen on a short tour of the city, with its many enticing little shops down narrow alleyways. Whether you’re planning a short city tour, a small boat trip, a bike tour, an overnight or extended stay, STADE Tourismus-GmbH is the place to go for expert advice.
