    A tour of the wonderful historic old town of Hitzacker I can highly recommend - it's worth it.
    The vineyard offers the most beautiful view of the listed city island. It is the ancestral cell of the Elbestadt, which was founded during the reign of Henry the Lion. In the city museum The Old Customs House is the story archived, it is told on city tours and pointed to important personalities: Hiddo, the legendary founder, the Renaissance and book prince Duke August, the younger, who ruled from 1604 to 1634 in Hitzacker, the scientist Bernhard Varenius (1622-1650 / 51) and Claus von Amsberg, father of Willem-Alexander, King of the Netherlands. Both were born in Hitzacker (Elbe).
    Since 2010, Hitzacker (Elbe) is a state-approved Kneipp health resort. Hotels have Kneipp and spa facilities, the Kneipp spa garden and the city island have pedal and arm baths, a barefoot path and fitness equipment freely available. Badarzt and Kneipp therapists advise and support.

    Hitzacker is an ideal destination in eastern Lower Saxony. Above all, the old town island with several well-kept half-timbered and brick houses, which radiate a lot of atmosphere, worth a visit. The houses stretch almost to the banks of the Elbe and were therefore repeatedly threatened by floods. Since 2008, the old town is protected by a massive concrete promenade

    Pretty little old town.
    With a bit of luck, you will always find one or the other dwarf sitting in front of a door.

    Hitzacker has a pretty little old town on the "city island". The old town is "framed" by the rivers Elbe and Jeetzel. There is a very nice view of the city island from the vineyard.

    Hitzacker in Lower Saxony is located at the confluence of the Jeetzel and the Elbe. While the Elbe heights (also: Klötzie), at the south-eastern foot of which is Hitzacker, are already part of the Lüneburg Heath in terms of nature (compare: Drawehn), the lowlands of the old town are part of the Elbe Valley.
    The city island with half-timbered houses and the customs house built in 1589 are under monument protection.

    If it fits, be sure to take the ferry to Hitzacker. On the other side there is a parking lot, the ferry runs continuously and there is no nicer way to get to a city.
