Walsrode is a town in Lower Saxony, which like most towns and cities in the region has a very long history. Walsrode was first mentioned in 986, and had probably already been there for a long time. The town is now a refreshing mix of old and new - there are still examples of Saxon architecture to be seen, alongside modern parks that are beautifully manicured.
You will want to hire a car in Walsrode because the main attractions include a safari park that you have to drive through, though there are plenty of other activities on offer as well.
Walsrode is unique among other towns in Saxony because it contains a small piece of the Serengeti. The Serengeti Park is a driven safari so arrange to hire a car -where you drive through the park and see hundreds of different kinds of animals. There is an amusement park at the end, to keep the fun going.
Walsrode also has a riding school, where non-riders are welcome, or there are a number of parks in the city. Not all sightseeing opportunities or activities are close together though, and hiring a car in Walsrode is a good idea if you want to see them all.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
