"Planning a trip to Osterholz in Feb, do they still have the old type guest houses which have bars and places to eat downstairs? Can't seem to find anything online. Also can't find any realtors in Osterholtz the speak English. I know I'll have to learn German when I get there but need one that speaks English first. Thanks for any help anyone can give."

Good day, if you as an American soldier earlier in Garlstedt in Osterholz - Scharmbeck were, then surely my "Stagges Hotel". On the ground floor was a pub and upstairs there was a disco. The then owner Fritz Stagge has sold the house. It has been renovated and is now again a local. See www.stagges.de The name "Stagges Hotel" is a bit misleading because you can not stay there, you have no hotel room. I hope I could help you. Sincerely from the Worpswede Herbord Schröder

More about the History of Osterholz-Scharmbeck

The town was first mentioned in 1043 as Scirnbeci. From 1180 on the Scharmbeck belonged to the Prince-Archbishopric of Bremen. The monastery in Osterholz was founded in 1182 and persisted until 1650, when Lower Saxony became mostly Protestant. In 1648 the Prince-Archbishopric was transformed into the Duchy of Bremen, which was first ruled in personal union by the Swedish and from 1715 on by the Hanoverian Crown. In 1823 the Duchy was abolished and its territory became part of the Stade Region in the Kingdom of Hanover.

In 1927 the two communities of Osterholz and Scharmbeck were merged under the name of Osterholz-Scharmbeck and in 1929 town privileges were granted.

Between 1978 and 1992 4200 soldiers of the US-army (2nd armored division fwd) were stationed and another 4000 family members resided in Osterholz-Scharmbeck.
