Glindenberg, first mentioned in a document in 1212, is located in a scenic area. Nestled between the rivers Elbe and Ohre you can experience nature up close. Several listed buildings – mainly four-sided courtyards – give the village center its character. In recent years, the main streets have been thoroughly renovated and a residential area in an idyllic location has been created near the Elbe River. In September 2014, the opening of the new building of a day care center took place.

A special attraction in the immediate vicinity is the waterway junction. In October 2003, the canal bridge over the Elbe was inaugurated as a continuous waterway from the Ruhr area to Berlin.

As a technical monument, the Rothensee ship lift is definitely worth a visit.

Annual events organized by the local associations complete the cultural offer in the village.
