Bodenwerder is the home of one of the most famous legendary figures of the Weserbergland: Baron Münchhausen, the 'Baron of Lies'. Although Bodenwerder isn't known for such tall tales today, stories about the Baron are still everywhere. Many different events keep the stories of Baron Münchhausen alive, for locals and visitors all year around. From May to October, on the first Sunday of each month, an open-air Münchhausen play is performed in front of the town hall and between May and September, on every second and fourth Sunday, there is a Münchhausen musical. Cyclists will love the scenery of the Weser-cycle route, while hikerss can enjoy the splendours of the Weserbergland-Trail.
Polle is situated in the Solling-Vogler region in the heart of the Weserbergland. The fortress ruins of the counts of Everstein, the focus in Polle, is perched high on a rocky outcrop, making an attractive landmark with panoramic views.
Polle is especially magical, because it is the home of Cinderella, the world-famous heroine of the Grimm fairy tale, who enchants visitors young and old.
During the Poller Burgfestspiele, a medieval festival, an amateur theatre group puts on a different programme every year, including a play for children and another for adults.
