Ingenuity from Lower Saxony
A community on the rise
The community of Scheeßel is still strongly characterized by agriculture. However, Scheessel is now starting to see an upswing in new businesses due to the existing infrastructure. Various factors, such as an attractive range of leisure activities, a well-developed school system and many shopping facilities, have also ensured that Scheeßel has once again become more attractive as a place to live, even among young families.
Scheessel is surrounded by many natural wonders which locals and tourists enjoy via hiking and canoeing. In addition, many cyclists pass through Scheessel via the Wümme Cycle path which extends throughout the region.
Music for the masses
Scheeßel is known nationwide mainly because of the Hurricane Festival. Every year in June, thousands of music fans flock to the festival grounds to see national and international bands for an entire weekend. Another highlight with nationwide fame is the so-called International Beeke Festival. The traditional costume festival enjoys great popularity every year and is regularly visited by several thousand people.
