Bike Touring Highlight
The island fortress Wilhelmstein is unique in Europe. Built in the midst of the Steinhuder Sea in the years 1761-67, it was at that time as impregnable, since the land side was surrounded by moor. The builder, Count Wilhelm zu Schaumburg-Lippe, equipped the buildings with numerous cannons for defense, the first German submarine was to complete the defense.
The small miniature fortress in the Steinhuder Meer is a worthwhile excursion destination, to which the crossing with the motor sailboats of the Steinhuder Personenschifffahrt contributes decisively.
