Syke is the largest town and third-largest municipality in the district of Diepholz in Lower Saxony. It is located in the east of the Wildeshauser Geest Nature Park, about 19 kilometers south of Bremen. The Hache river flows through the town. As a "town in the countryside", Syke is characterized by the approximately 900-hectare state forests of Friedeholz and Westermark. The Geest between the Hunte and Weser rivers (mainly the Delmenhorst area, but also the Syker Geest area) is an ancient settlement area with a long history of settlement. Finds from the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age are exhibited in the district museum in Syke, the local history museum in Nienburg and the Focke Museum in Bremen. In 2011, the Bronze Age gold hoard of Gessel, one of the largest prehistoric gold finds in Central Europe, was discovered in the Feldmark near the district of Gessel. © Axel Hindemith
