LEMGO IN 5 MINUTES

Take the time for a short portrait
of the old hanseatic town.

Located in the heart of the Lipperland, between the Teutoburg Forest and the Weserbergland area, an architectural and cultural-historical jewel awaits you: the 825 year old hanseatic town Lemgo. It is embedded in a particularly attractive, diverse forest and hillside landscape.

Within the tree-lined ramparts there are 400 monuments of gothic and renaissance styles. Internationally recognized modern architecture forms a fascinating contrast.

The exciting history and the lively presence of Lemgo merge into an eventful town culture. As an interesting business location with many leisure opportunities, Lemgo offers a high quality of life, far from hustle and bustle of big cities.
