Leisure time and recreation
Indoor and outdoor pools
Only five minutes’ walk from PS.SPEICHER is the opportunity for bathing 21st-century style. Set in attractive grounds, the Einbeck indoor and outdoor pool complex draws in visitors from around the region to enjoy the leisure and health facilities.

Heldenburg (castle ruin)
Overlooking nearby Salzderhelden, Heldenburg once served to protect the salt fountain at the foot of the hill. Förderverein Heldenburg is an association that was set up to conserve this imposing ruin with its picturesque outlook across the Leine valley. The members also organise excavations, castle church services and other special events.

18-hole golf course
Set in a beautiful 30-hectare landscape with views to the horizon is Golf Park Leinetal in the Einbeck suburb of Immensen. There is an extensive practice area where beginners can find their way into the sport at their own pace.

Kaiser Friedrich Tower
The lookout tower in Einbeck municipal forest was officially opened more than a century ago. Since 2014, it has been in the care of the Förderverein Kaiser-Friedrich-Turm Einbeck. This voluntary organisation preserves the structure and heritage of the tower with its views across the Altendorfer Berg nature reserve.

Leinepolder Nature Park
The landscape of the flood retention basin at Einbeck-Salzderhelden enjoys protected status. It is both a public recreation area as well as a restored natural habitat for various threatened bird species.

Burg Grubenhagen
This 13th century castle in Einbeck-Rotenkirchen has been restored thanks to generous donations and public funding. With the permission of the Burgverein (Castle Preservation Society), visitors are allowed to climb the tower and to use the former stables for private events.

The market square

The Marktplatz (market square) is a popular meeting place for the people of Einbeck. It is quite literally the central point for the community and a place where they like to spend quality time. In fact, they regard it as a sort of shared ‘parlour’ where they celebrate and welcome guests.
Town walls and remains of fortifications

Many sections of the medieval town fortifications are still well preserved,
in particular the Bäckerwall
(Baker’s Wall). Construction commenced in the 13th century with the purpose of defending the town against its enemies. The thick walls are nowadays a wonderful backdrop for a pleasant stroll.
