Monuments and Sights

In the immediate vicinity of Boizenburg harbor there is a unique "meeting place", the so-called Weidenschneck. This was built on the green meadow next to the harbor wall a few years ago and is a living structure in the truest sense of the word.

Not only because regular events fill the place with life and people like to meet here when the weather is nice. The willow snail is a living structure above all because the building, which was created from tiny willow cuttings, is now a fascinating natural stage that invites visitors to numerous cultural events during the summer months. Its "outgrowths" of 18 meters in length, nine meters in width and a remarkable height of twelve meters after all have made the Willow Snail one of the largest willow tree structures in Germany.
With its vaulted ceiling, through which the sun winks in fine weather, as well as the small tower next to it, the tree work also reminds one a little of a church. If you feel like it, you can climb the tower and take a look over the Elbe meadows from here. A subsequent willow walkway, about 450 meters long, connects the lively village with the old town of Boizenburg, which is definitely worth a visit with its lovingly restored half-timbered houses.
