Winsen an der Aller or Winsen is a town in the district of Celle in the German state of Lower Saxony.GeographyWinsen has around 12,900 inhabitants and lies on the southern perimeter of the Lüneburg Heath, on the banks of the Aller, somewhat to the west of its tributary, the Örtze and about 15 km northwest of Celle. As well as the town itself, the borough of Winsen also includes the villages of Bannetze, Meißendorf, Stedden, Südwinsen, Thören, Walle and Wolthausen.HistoryThe name of the town is derived from Wynhausen . Winsen's church is dedicated to John the Baptist. Because all villages with churches named after this patron saint appeared around 800 it is suspected that this was also when Winsen was founded.Today Winsen is a favourite local recreation and holiday area and, since 1975, has been recognised officially as a climatic health resort .PoliticsCoat of ArmsThe coat of arms of the town depicts the Stechinelli Gate, one of the town’s monuments and, in between the two gateposts, the coat of arms of Lüneburg, a gold shield with red hearts surrounding a blue lion rampant.
