Moor and Geest, woodland and heath, dunes and meadows: The wide meadow area around Ottersberg impresses with its great variety. Embedded in rows of trees from old alder and oak trees lies the small village Fischerhude (mentioned in documentary already 1124), which is also called “Island forest village” and which has been found only in 1852 in church documentation. The many arms of the river Wümme and the wetlands around it are the key point of the idyillic environment. Today, the many old farms remind us of the wealthy farmers who came to wealth through stocks and haymakings. Old duck houses, jetty or boathouse and bridges bring back past traditions. The artist village Fischerhude has been the home and workplace for generations f painters, sculptors and musicians. In 1895, the rural life was enriched by the painter Heinrich Breling who grew up in Fischerhude and by the settlement of Clara Rilke Westhoff, Dietrich Speckmann (surname), Otto Modersohn, and other artists. From then on it was named as the “village of farmers and artists”. Special attractions include “Otto Modersohn-Museum” and “Museum Irmintraut”.
