The diverse landscape of Osnabrücker Land
Osnabrücker Land is known for its enormously diverse landscape, ranging from the Wiehengebirge hills and Teutoburger Wald (Teutoburg Forest) to moraine landscapes, river flood plains and spectacular moors.
The rich cultural landscape of the Artland in the north of the region is down to the fertile soil that the Hase river has deposited here. The unique farmyard culture dominates the overall impression of the region.
To this day, the castles and palaces, churches and abbeys, Roman stone buildings, windmills and watermills, historic town centres and numerous megalithic tombs have left their mark on the Osnabrücker Land.
The region is also a paradise for nature lovers and active tourists: it boasts 2,500 km of well signposted bike trails and long distance walking routes with 10 themed adventure tours and 4 long distance bike paths. Osnabrücker Land is also becoming increasingly popular as a hiking region. Traditionally, European long distance hiking trails traverse the region, and Osnabrücker Land’s “TOP 4” walking routes provide excellent service and plenty of adventures.
