Just 30 km from Hamburg is an ancient town of Buxtehude (Buxtehude). Known for his tales of how the city brought Wilhelm Schroeder. Even as a child he heard folk tale about how the hedgehog and the hare competed in the race. As an adult, Schroeder wrote this story unsophisticated in Low German and moved the seat of action on the field near the town of Buxtehude.
Stade and Buxtehude - one of those cities where you can come once or twice in warm weather. Take a walk, drink, eat something tasty and local and go back. Both are located on the left bank of the Elbe and you can reach them or paromchike, which departs from the suburbs of Hamburg Blankenese, or a detour through Elbbryuke (literally - the bridge over the Elbe) .
