    Beautiful city on the Elbe with castle.After the fall of Henry the Lion, the Welfs lost the end of the 12th century, the disposal of the Elbe crossing Artlenburg and trade routes Bardowicks. Bleckede was therefore founded in 1209 as a city by Duke William of Brunswick and Lüneburg as a new trading center under the name Löwenstadt / Lowenstat on the Elbe. The name chosen in memory of Henry the Lion did not prevail. The place name Bleckede is probably due to the old Germanic "Blek-ithi", blek and -ithi here mean bright, free, bright spot, and originated from the former German and Wendish settlement Bleketsa and Slavicum BleckedeAfter the fall of Henry the Lion, the Welfs lost the end of the 12th century, the disposal of the Elbe crossing Artlenburg and trade routes Bardowicks.

    Bleckede is a city of the German half-timbered street. Meanwhile, the city is shaped by your information center in the castle Bleckede. The information center is dominated by two themes: An old building and life on the river: Schloss Bleckede is the adventure center of the biosphere reserve Niedersächsische Elbtalaue. Over 1000 square meters of modern exhibition space make one of the most interesting and pristine landscapes of Central Europe understandable and tangible. Vogelstimmenklavier, flooding model, aquarium, observation tower, life-size animals and much more can be discovered here and tried out - for young and old.
    Here there is also the tourist information, room service and a shop with regional products from Bleckede and the surrounding area and original souvenirs.
