"Is the sasacatchewan still opened? It's a nice place ..." (posted 03/24/2014)

There are definitely no restaurants with this name in Nienburg, which can only be written as "Saskatchawan" in the United States. I do not think that there was ever a "Saskatchawan" in our Nienburg. There is a Nienburg an der Saale, maybe this is a confusion with the other town.

Sorry, but I do not know what the sasacatchewan is. Are you sure we're talking about the same Nienburg? There are several Nienburg in Germany.

More about the History of Nienburg

Nienburg is mentioned for the first time in 1025 in a charter of the bishopric of Minden. Since Nienburg is translated as new castle, it must have existed as a former castle, or at least an older, adjacent roost.

As part of the Lower Saxony regional reform in 1974, neighboring communities Erich Hagen-Wölpe, Holtorf, Langendamm, and Schäferhof / Kattriede were combined with the city.
