"More than 500 Half-Timbered Houses!!!" Duderstadt by RhineRoll

Duderstadt Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 9 photos

Duderstadt is a country town of some 20,000 people in the south-easternmost part of Lower Saxony, close to the Thuringian border.

It is somewhat off the beaten path, but if you are in the area, I highly recommend a visit to see Duderstadt's fantastic ensemble of half-timbered buildings. International tourism is existent, but pretty much low-key and almost exclusively limited to Dutch and Danish visitors.

I had the pleasure to work in Duderstadt's city hall for 3 months during my legal preparation service.

The Westerturm

The Westerturm (West Tower) and its gate are the nicest entrance into Duderstadt's old town. Find out about its twisted roof in my "Must See" tips!

Lovely Corners Everywhere

This is just one of the many charming corners Duderstadt's old town has to offer.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:wonderful historic old town, lovely surroundings

    Excellent photos highlight this interesting place. Where is it in relation to Germany's big cities with large airpoorts?
