Osnab­rück­er Land

Osnabrücker Land, situated in the south-west of Niedersachsen, boasts plenty to see and do. To this day, the castles and palaces, churches and abbeys, Romanesque stone buildings, windmills and watermills, historic town centres and numerous megalithic tombs have left their mark on Osnabrücker Land.
Osnabrücker Land is known for its enormously diverse landscape, ranging from the Wiehengebirge and Teutoburger Wald to moraine landscapes, river flood plains and spectacular moors.
The landscape can be explored on two wheels across 2,800 kilometres of signposted bike paths, for example the Grenzgängerroute Teuto-Ems, or with two feet along one of the signposted walking routes.
Hikers eager to follow the traces of the dinosaurs will love the Wiehengebirge, where their footprints were discovered in a stone pit around 100 years ago. Today, visitors can go on a dinosaur-themed adventure in the stone pit.
Tourists can also learn about the Earth’s 300-million-year history in the TERRA.vita Nature Park and Geopark on the Wiehengebirge. It is one of the few nature parks in Germany to be recognised as a UNESCO Geopark.
But above all else, Osnabrücker Land is known for two historic events: the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest and the Peace of Westphalia.
A museum near the village of Kalkriese sheds light on the history and the battle.
The Peace of Westphalia, the treaty that put an end to the Thirty Years’ War, was declared from the steps of the town hall in the city of Osnabrück in 1648.
