16 towns and 10 historical sites in the Weser Mountains region have come together to act under the brand "Historisches Weserbergland". Coordinated by the association Weserbergland Tourismus e.V.

Under the slogan "Traces of the past – a real experience" the "Historisches Weserbergland" combines the stories and the history of a region to an unforgettable adventure of that time. Immerse yourself in history and write your own story in the Weser Mountains.

The five themed worlds: lifelines, culture trails, religious paths, adventure spots and wandering for epicures are the basis for the brand.

Furthermore, the foundation for the brand launch was the creation and development of quality standards. Every town and site had to undergo a quality check. Afterwards the deficits were eliminated in a process of 2 years and fixed quality criteria were defined. The compliance and implementation of the quality standards are verified and optimised in regular intervals. Thus, you can expect a high quality degree in all historical towns and sites of the Weser Mountains.
