Culture of Osnabruck. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Osnabruck has many interesting historical symbols, as well as numerous museums and cultural centers. Connoisseurs of fine art will have a chance to visit the Haus-Museum Felix Nussbaum dedicated to the life and work of the famous artist Felix Nussbaum. A few years ago, an old house in which the artist lived in the first half of the 20th century was renovated and is now an outstanding architectural monument itself. The museum has collected about 200 works by the artist, as well as lots of interesting exhibits, one way or another related to his biography. The museum is striking not only with its original architecture but also with an unusual internal layout. It has a temporary exhibition hall and a small souvenir shop.

In the city's main square, you can see the old Town Hall building. It is famous for the fact that the Peace of Westphalia Treaty was signed here in 1648. This became one of the key events in the history of the region. Locals do not forget about this significant document: at the entrance to the Town Hall, one can see portraits of military and political figures who participated in the signing of the agreement.
Near the historic Town Hall is one of the city's most beautiful churches - Kirche Der Jungfrau Maria. It was founded more than 200 years ago but completely burned down during the Second World War. Thanks to the drawings preserved in the city archive, it was possible to restore the church to its original condition. The best experts were involved in its construction. Now it looks exactly the same as 200 years ago. One of the main features of the church is its stunning pediments. Copyright

An interesting historical landmark is the old Bucksturm Watchtower. It was erected in the 13th century and was originally used to protect the city, and later was converted into a prison. During the witch-hunt years, prisoners suspected of witchcraft were kept in this tower. Currently, the old tower houses a small themed museum dedicated to this historical period.
Everyone should totally take a tour of the ancient Schloss Osnabrück. It dates back to the second half of the 17th century and is a striking Baroque architectural monument. This splendid castle was built as a residence for Prince Ernest Augustus and currently stands on the border between Osnabruck's old and new town. The castle was also badly damaged during the war years. It was possible to completely restore it only by the 70s of the last century. Presently, the historic building is occupied by the teacher's college. During the reconstruction period, a new beautiful garden was formed around the castle. It became one of the favorite places to walk with locals and tourists alike. You can see many symbolic sculptures and memorials in the garden.

The Museum of Industrial Culture can be found in the beautiful Renaissance-style historic building. The latter was built in 1871 directly above the coal mine. Today, a must-have part of the museum tour is descending to the bottom of the mine. A glass elevator takes visitors down to a depth of 24 meters. They can see with their own eyes the conditions in which coal was mined many years ago. The 300-meter-long adit presents a very interesting collection of industrial exhibits. Machines and various working tools that were once used by miners were preserved down here. The museum building keeps a collection of old photographs, as well as themed exhibitions dedicated to the most famous industrialists of the region.
One of the city's oldest surviving buildings is St. Peter's Cathedral dating back to the 12th century. The very first church was erected on this site in the 8th century but was completely destroyed during the war with Normandy. The cathedral has been rebuilt and reconstructed throughout hundreds of years, so elements of various architectural styles are currently combined in its external appearance. Since citizens used the old building as a bomb shelter during the Second World War, the cathedral was partially destroyed at that time. It was possible to fully restore it by 2003. An ancient organ was also restored at the final stage of reconstruction works.
