What can I do in Osnabrück and Lingen?

Osnabrück is the third largest city in Lower Saxony with a population of about 160,000. About 26,000 students shape the lively city. The City of Peace is located between the Wiehengebirge and the Teutoburg Forest. Small shops and large chain stores invite extensive shopping tours. Afterwards you can relax and wind down the day in the many cafés and student pubs in the downtown area and the beautiful old town. And the best part: Thanks to short distances, you can easily explore Osnabrück on foot or by bike. The green Osnabrück countryside is also within easy reach.

In Lingen, campus, shops, cafés and bars are only a stone's throw away from each other. About 56,600 inhabitants live in the city in Emsland.
