Fürstenberg is mainly famed for its porcelain factory. The Fürstenberg porcelain factory, with its blue 'F' trademark, is among the oldest in Europe. The chateau complex in the Weser Renaissance style comprises the 'Museum in the castle' in the former hunting lodge, elegant dining at the castles' Café-Restaurant Lottine and a factory outlet.

The lovingly tended, attractive town is situated on the Weser Renaissance Road. As well as offering tranquillity and relaxation, it is also the perfect starting point for a wide range of sporting activities including hiking on the RaabeHiking Trail, exploring on the water, cycling on the Weser-cycle route, mountain biking, tennis, fishing, swimming, paragliding, sailing and surfing. Or if you prefer something more leisurely, why not enjoy a river cruise with Flotte Weser?

Thanks to the attractive organic farm shop in the middle of town, you can enjoy healthy living in Boffzen. A little outside the town, between Boffzen and Höxter, is the famous Solling Oil Mill with its mill shop and garden. Visitors can discover how high-quality oils are manufactured. Tasting sessions are also available.

Lauenförde is home to the famous Kragstuhlmuseum, a museum of modern furniture, with its unusual architecture, and the TECTA Archive.

For culture lovers the Boffzen Glass Museum has a permanent exhibition devoted to local glassmaking, annually changing exhibitions and a varied programme of events. Here, visitors can learn about the relationship between forests and glassmaking and the different steps in the production of mouth-blown and pressed glass in the past and in modern times.

Near Boffzen, on the other side of the Weser, are the Castle Corvey and the historic old town of Höxter.
