Osnabrück


Osnabruck impresses visitors with its upbeat culture, endearing Old Town with its small, colourful gabled houses, attractive shops and exquisite cuisine.

The city offers a broad spectrum of culture with a vast array of museums, including the Felix Nussbaum Haus designed by architect Daniel Libeskind and the Diözesanmuseum (Diocesan Museum), in addition to the many medieval stone-structure buildings.

Osnabrück is the only major German city situated at the heart of a nature park: the TERRA.vita UNESCO Global Geopark, with its award-winning long distance hiking routes and cycling trips, some of which incorporate Osnabrück city centre.

History was written in Osnabrück. Alongside Münster, this was where the Westfälischer Friede (Peace of Westphalia) was signed. It took five years to negotiate these peace treaties. This slice of history created a legacy for political and cultural life in the present-day city of Osnabrück. The town hall where the peace treaties were signed has been awarded the European Heritage Label.
