Bike Touring Highlight
Customs had its headquarters there until the fall of the Wall. The plaster was peeling, beams lay on the floor, the property in front of the house had been flattened like a gravel parking lot. Heavy armored doors on the first floor locked the former armory. Today the guest bed of the "Schubertiaden" is right there, and we will talk about these later.
"In the beginning we were strangers here," says Tatjana Zenziper. "Two Russians came into the largest house in Schnackenburg. I don't think everyone was equally enthusiastic, but I can understand that." The Zenzipers are now one of those families who are reinventing life in isolation. And hardly a place would be more suitable for this than Schnackenburg.
Tatjana Zenziper wears ballerinas, tight trousers, a blazer, and she looks much too relaxed for the fact that she only arrived at three o'clock the night before, by car from Dresden. The family has another residence there. Zenziper's husband Arkadi is a piano professor at the Dresden University of Music "Carl Maria von Weber".

Beautiful old half-timbered houses, the Grenzlandmuseum against oblivion.
If you continue to the right, you come to the Hafencafe. Homemade cakes, small menu (e.g. pickled herrings with fried potatoes, aurochs steak), everything fresh - nothing out of the bag.
Good price / performance ratio. You can sit outside or in the winter garden.

Schnackenburg is the smallest city in Lower Saxony and the smallest port city in Germany. Schnackenburg was mentioned for the first time shortly after 1184. The city probably originated from a Slavic castle complex called Godegard = Schlangenburg. The tower and nave of the Romanesque church have remained almost intact to this day; there is a floating baptismal angel.Before reunification, Schnackenburg was a customs post, and the Grenzlandmuseum at the harbor is a reminder of this.deutsche-storchenstrasse.de/index.php?id=154

The square at the market is the central square in Schnackenburg. A generous space with a large tree to provide shade and take a break. There is also a covered break area.
The old half-timbered houses, the town hall, the old manor house and the borderland museum are located on it. St. Georg is only a few steps away.

Schnackenburg, the smallest town in Lower Saxony, is a pretty little town. On the market square there is a covered table with benches that can be used for a break. The Grenzlandmuseum can also be found directly on the market square, and the Schnackenburg harbor is directly connected to it. Unfortunately there are no shops in Schnackenburg, no supermarket, no discounter, no kiosk and no gas station. For shopping you always have to go to Gartow, about 10km away.
