Iburg Castle by night

The prince-bishopric of Osnabrück was the first own reign and residence of Ernst August I. and his wife Sophia of the Palatinate; the Osnabrücker Land was therefore the beginning of the initially undreamt-of rise of the House of Welf. His descendant the unforgotten George V, last king of Hanover, founded together with his beloved wife Marie the town of Georgsmarienhütte in the Osnabrücker Land.

These two historical personalities laid the foundations for industrialisation here. Numerous museums, castles and stunning English gardens will lead you back through their history.
