The joint municipality of Lamspringe is located in the foreland of the Harz Mountains and, with its attractive half-timbered houses in the old town and idyllic location between forests and meadows, offers a wonderful holiday destination for those seeking rest and relaxation.
A special highlight of the town is the monastery park. As the former orchard and vegetable garden of a Benedictine monastery, it now houses numerous sights and leisure facilities. The Catholic monastery church, the abbey building of the former Benedictine monastery and the former monastery mill with water wheel are especially worthy of mention.
Lamspringe offers plenty different leisure activities. In the monastery park, there is a miniature golf course, a boules court and a children's playground. Sports halls, various sports fields and tennis courts, a riding arena and a shooting range are scattered around the village. The sculpture trail and the "Avenue of Annual Trees", a cycling and hiking path built on a disused railway line, link the former Lamspringe Monastery with the Brunshausen Monastery.
Fans of water sports will love the heated lido 'Waldbad Lamspringe'. Situated on a sunny south-facing slope, the public lido has a 50-metre long pool, a 3-metre diving tower, a giant slide, a paddling area for the very young and a sunbathing lawn with a beach volleyball court, table tennis table and playground.
Visitors can meet top-class artists from all over the world at the Lamspringer September. For one month, the town presents various events in the fields of music, theatre, visual arts and literature.
