Bike Touring Highlight
Wienhausen is a romantic village with a historic monastery surrounded by a large park. The local dowry ladies offer interesting guided tours. The town has a small, well-preserved, old town center with many picturesque half-timbered houses, where it can be transformed to your heart's content, and then to take a little refreshment in the monastery café.
From Celle on numerous good cycling routes (Allerradweg) to reach. Small detours on Bockelskamp and Osterloh (weir system) make the ride interesting. Or maybe back to Lachendorf and the Lachte along with some exciting trails for mountain bikers.

The bell tower
At the end of the 14th century, the Wienhaus bell tower was erected in a manner that is quite common in northern Germany. A freestanding, wooden-covered tower was placed slightly off the church. The stability of the belfry could be increased by a final truss construction. The bell tower once offers the viewer a steadfastly defiant exterior.
If the bell tower could tell stories, it would tell of happy chattering baptismal societies, of festive wedding bands, but also of many sad events. Around the bell tower was the cemetery from 1534 to 1798.
Even today, whether on Sunday church or on the way home, often the view touches the old bell tower just like an old acquaintance - nice that we see each other!

The St. Mary's Church in Wienhausen seems almost devoutly crouched down to the viewer, there next to her "younger sister" the monastery church with its beautiful brick gables. If one looks very closely, one notices immediately the Romanesque core building style of the church with its clear form language. What may seem like an "annex", however, hides an exciting story.
The architectural beginnings of the Church of St. Mary are in the dark. However, ancient records prove that the church held an important position in later years after its founding. For the years 1051 and 1057, at least 200 years before the founding of the monastery, it is testified as a "mother church". This meant that she was subordinate to some neighboring communities.
