The best way to enjoy the beautiful Weser landscape is a boat trip. From mid-April to mid-October, round trips and a scheduled service on the river weser are offered.
The atypical building (Kupferschmiedestraße) with continuous floorboards (entrance portal and back exit are diagonally staggered) was constructed around 1560. For a long time it was used as a brewhouse. The building’s lively style is created by its splendid colours and ample use of typical renaissance halftimber motives.
The house was built 1585-1589 for merchant Gerd Leist. Above the attic, it features a bizarre, jagged volute gable. Due to its mouldings, the broad, two-storey Utlucht (oriel) blends in with the rest of the façade. In the gable niche of the Utlucht crown, a fully rounded Lucretia sculpture is placed below an overhead scallop.
