Come enjoy the atmosphere of a typical quaint village in Lower Saxony’s rolling hills in a cozy apartment with charming exposed timber framing and an edge of modern design. The apartment is located inside a larger home that was built over 360 years ago in the village of Heiligendorf founded in 1153. Heiligendorf is part of Wolfsburg where Volkswagen is based. Staying at The Stork’s Nest will give you the feeling of being transported back in time, but you will also have all of the luxuries of present times and there’s so much to offer in the surrounding area!
The apartment was recently renovated and has a fully equipped kitchen (stove, oven, fridge, kettle, crockery and cutlery included) and it is clean, cheerful and comfortable. There is also a living room with a T.V. and a couple of English channels. There are two bedrooms for you, one with a single bed and one with a double bed. A full spacious private bathroom is included in the apartment with a separate shower and bathing tub as well and a wash machine and drying rack (no dryer). Since the home is over 360 years old, keep an eye out for the low doorways (1.75 meters), because people in the past were generally smaller than today.
The views from the windows showcase the typical red tiled roofs and the neighboring timber-framed houses and barns. You can feel the rural character with chickens clucking, neighing horses and see storks fly and nest nearby. Just when you think you are back in history, you can easily find cutting edge sightseeing and learning nearby at the Volkswagen’s Autostadt or the Phæno Science Museum. There are excellent exhibitions of new and old artwork at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg. In downtown Wolfsburg there is plenty of shopping with a full enclosed mall and a Designer Outlet center! This area has the best of the old world and the the new blended together!
For breakfast you can visit the village bakery about 180 meters from the apartment and for basic needs there is also a Netto grocery store only 240 meters away. By bus or car is a large shopping center including a Real, Media Markt and more (4.7 miles).
If you’d like to stay closeby to the apartment, the village of Heiligendorf has a riding stable called Welkensiek. There are many recently paved bike paths to all the neighboring villages and to Wolfsburg and Braunschweig along with walking and hiking trails if you want to explore. If you’d like to venture out with public transportation the nearest bus stop is 70 meters away.
From the apartment you will be:
10 minutes from downtown Wolfsburg (11.3 miles)
20 minutes from downtown Braunschweig (23 miles)
50 minutes away from the Harz Mountains (73 km)
1 hour from downtown Hannover (85 km)
