Altes Land is an area in the southwest of Hamburg and famous for being Germany’s largest continuous fruit-growing region. Every year, the magnificent cherry and apple blossom season between the end of April and mid-May transform Altes Land into a sea of white and pink.
Impressive traditional timber-framed farm houses with elaborately decorated front gates and village churches with separate bell towers are characteristic of this part of the country. Some of these churches are home to rare Baroque Arp Schnitger organs.
A trip to Altes Land can easily be combined with a visit to Stade.
