Oldenburg city and surroundings
Oldenburg is a good place to live. Our small city with more than 169,000 inhabitants is located in the northwest of Germany between the North Sea, Hamburg and the Dutch border. The North Sea shapes the climate: in summer it is not too hot, in winter not too cold.
The most popular means of transport in Oldenburg is the bicycle. There is a very well developed network of cycle paths and beautiful leisure routes.
Enjoy the festive atmosphere of the Lambertimarkt, Oldenburg's Christmas market! From the end of November until Christmas, it offers the opportunity to meet friends over a hot beverage or to get Christmas presents.
Not far from Oldenburg on the North Sea coast lies the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park – a real special feature! Day trips to the spa town of Dangast or to an East Frisian island are a good idea. If you like, take a mudflat hike.
