Places of interest
Located between the Heide and North Sea, Hamburg and Bremen, Zeven is known as the „Green Gateway to the North“ and is the perfect home base for tour groups, private guests, biking excursions or for business travelers.
Amidst our city many opportunities are provided, to help arrange an enjoyable and varying leisure time. For example the city gallery, „Christinenhaus“ with alternating exhibitions. This was named after the swedish Queen Christine who supposedly stayed the night here on a trip to Rom. Various concert and theater recitals await you in the Rathaussaal, and the museum monastery Zeven which are accomodated in the former benedictine convent, and are well worth a visit. Next to the romanesque vaulted cellar and baroque wall paintings from convent times, you will find a collection of history, documents about monastery and local chronicles, folkloric department as well as a jury hall with changing exhibitions. A particular mention is given to the Hans- Müller-Brauel-Zimmer and it‘s library, in which the memory of the local historian is cherished.
In our fire department museum, which is conducted with dedication and love through the voluntary members of this club, you will find an exhibition which documents the development of firemanship from the fire extinguishing pail up to the vehicle. Surely there will be the one or other detail of interest to you, and maybe we were able to awaken your imagination and will soon be able to greet you in the city by the woods. That would be our particular pleasure!
