Bike Touring Highlight
On 4 December 2005, the new historic exhibition on the history of Bardowicks in the guildhall (1632, two-tier house) was opened. That this was possible is the result of an initiative of the windmill club. In discussions with the administration of the spot, the latter has managed to preserve the museum of local history and continue to operate with its own volunteers in the interest of all its fellow citizens. In order to make the museum more attractive, the previous exhibition was completely revised together. The exhibition illustrates Bardowick's long history under the title "A Village Through the Ages". In the Middle Ages, the place was an important trading center on the border of the German Reich. Only the destruction by Henry the Lion in 1189 ended this period of flowering. Lüneburg now took its place. As a religious center, the place was still of considerable importance. The medieval cathedral and the Nikolaihof are still visible evidence of this time. In the following years, Bardowick developed into an important center of seed and vegetable trade in northern Germany. The work in the countryside shaped the daily lives of the people. Although there are now some businesses in Bardowick, agriculture is still of great importance.Opening hours:
