In the mid 18th century Steinhude's fishermen formed a group to improve the economic situation. Annually they held an assembly to settle disputes, deliberate and execute a limited criminal law. This tradition is commemorated every year by celebrating Fischerkreidag.

Flea Market

The flea markets around the lake are becoming increasingly popular. With a lot of luck you can find true bargains between books, CDs, graphic novels, computer parts, antique tableware and second hand clothing. Every now and then treasures from great-grandmother's times are offered, such as embroidered tablecloths, jewelry, glass, porcelain and old furniture from days long gone.
