Bad Bevensen lies in a gentle-hilly landscape of the northern German lowland. The region is characterized by potato, sugar beet and grain farming, by forests, small heaths, the valley of the Ilmenau and the Elbe lateral canal.
The River Ilmenau flows through the town and the Elbe Side Canal runs past it to the east.
The town was first mentioned in the records in 1162, but was not given town rights until 1929. It has been officially recognised by the state as a mineral health spa since 1976.
Air: the nearest civil airports are at Hanover and Hamburg.
Road: the town is on the B 4 federal road.
Rail: there are hourly connexions from the station both north to Hamburg and south, via Uelzen to Hanover.
