Oldenburger Münsterland

The centuries-old links to Münster and Oldenburg have shaped Oldenburger Münsterland’s very special way of life. The locals are down-to-earth and sincere, and are only too happy to offer visitors an insight into the customs of and day-to-day life in the countryside. There are plenty of institutions offering exciting insights into this cultural region.

The region is also known for its fascinating natural diversity: the wooded Dammer Berge (Damme Hills) with its Lake Dümmer watersports paradise; the Thülsfelder Talsperre dam with its jagged banks; the expansive moor in the Nordkreis Vechta district and the tranquil river landscape of the Hasetal Valley. Up in the far north are the municipalities of Barßel and Saterland, where you can already smell the North Sea in the air. Each of these places has its very own way of life, which makes a trip to Oldenburger Münsterland an exciting and varied outing into the countryside.
Whether you go by bike, canoe, horse, car or camper van, you can discover the country and its people in the most relaxing and enjoyable way.
