The Gittelder Johannis church stands on the ground of the former castle - probably a branch of the royal residence Pöhlde.

Do you know the Ernst-August-pit-tunnel? It was built between 1851 and 1984 and runs from the mouth in Gittelde to the Schreibfeder mine shaft in the pit Regenbogen near Zellerfeld.
