Our Tourist Information

In the Lindow House you will receive information about the city, its hosts, leisure activities and places worth seeing

Our Tourist Information is located in a historic building, the Lindow House. What's it all about? Fruit growing in Werder experienced its first glory days in the 19th century. At the end of the century, the fruit growers were able to afford a variety of elegant properties with elaborate stucco facades. This architecture shapes the cityscape to this day, where the Lindow House is an exception.

It is one of the last preserved fruit farms of the old, authentic type. At the end of 2017, the city of Werder (Havel) began renovating and restoring the building. The listed house has become the new Visitor Centre of the Blossom City with tourist information and citizen service. 

In our Tourist Information, you will find information about current events, sights, and leisure activities in the city of Werder (Havel) and the holiday region Havelland as well as extensive information material.
