Bike Touring Highlight
The canoe sports facility Bischofsmühle was built during a necessary renovation of the Innerste weir in 1982. Some members of the canoe and sailing guild Hildesheim then saw their time and started with a violent persuasion for the construction of the canoe sports facility.
They reached the approval of the German Canoe Association for this facility, the only one in northern Germany.
The Landes-Kanu-Verband Niedersachsen commissioned its hydraulic engineer Butzengeiger from Braunschweig to investigate the possibilities and carried out flow tests in the Franzius-Institut.
After the completion of the plans, it turned out that the city of Hildesheim could not secure the financing.
Once again, the KSGH and the LKV-Niedersachsen set in motion and achieved through their commitment that grants from zone borderland funds and the state sports federation were approved. Finally, construction started.
The city of Hildesheim built the canoe sports facility and equipped it for sports.
The KSGH created the necessary infrastructure with the creation of sanitary containers and a regatta or seminar container.
Since the opening, annual slalom and white water regattas, as well as ranking list races of the German Canoe Association, have taken place. But equally important are the safety training courses of the canoe associations, as well as the education of schools and universities. The working group of the Hildesheim schools uses the canoe sports facility in the mornings of the week and here also allows the students to pass the Sport Abitur.
The KSGH offers overnight accommodation at its clubhouse in Lönsbruch for well-known canoeists.
In the 2002 season, a new sanitary facilities and a jetty was built.
It is now possible to reach by boat on the Innerste after about 1.5 km with a Umtragung the canoe sports Bischofsmühle.
