- Quaint, typical northern German countryside between the Elbe and the North Sea: sparsely populated, rich in water (Moore, rivers, canals, lakes) and woody with a nature reserve around the Balksee and a recognized as a very good climate through the iodine-rich sea air and the large mixed forest. Beautiful, coined by peace, quiet and natural location for exploring the old Hanseatic cities of Hamburg and Bremen. - Active relaxation by numerous biking and hiking trails and opportunities of riding on horseback. In the environment of beautiful small towns and villages with historic core - the famous Babyzoo, originated from a hatchery: Only very young wild animals with walk-in enclosures and exciting especially for children "petting zoo". - Close to great possibilities for a trip to Helgoland.

More about the History of Wingst

Wingst belonged to the Prince-Archbishopric of Bremen, established in 1180. In 1648 the Prince-Archbishopric was transformed into the Duchy of Bremen, which was first ruled in personal union by the Swedish Crown - interrupted by a Danish occupation (1712–1715) - and from 1715 on by the Hanoverian Crown. In 1807 the ephemeric Kingdom of Westphalia annexed the Duchy, before France annexed it in 1810. In 1813 the Duchy was restored to the Electorate of Hanover, which - after its upgrade to the Kingdom of Hanover in 1814 - incorporated the Duchy in a real union and the Ducal territory, including Wingst, became part of the new Stade Region, established in 1823.
