Osnabruck attracts travelers not only with outstanding attractions but also with beautiful holidays taking place throughout the year here.

The solemn procession ends at the old Town Hall, after which all people move to the nearest bars and pubs for further celebration.
All celebrations and festivals held in the city are necessarily accompanied by dance performances. Interestingly, Osnabrueck has its dance theater, which has been operating for over a hundred years. It was founded in 1909 and would be of interest even to those who have never before been interested in theatrical art.

In recent years, Osnabruck has acquired the status of an international cultural center. Thousands of travelers from all over the world visit the city every year. The welcoming and friendly nature of the townspeople, as well as their enthusiastic attitude towards all the celebrations taking place in the city, makes holidays in Osnabrück even more enjoyable. Despite being open to innovation, the townspeople are also distinguished by some conservative views. They do not like changes in some aspects of life and try to follow the traditions that have developed over generations.
Osnabruck residents give preference to traditional cuisine typical of Lower Saxony. The local cuisine has many gastronomic symbols, it is diverse and surprising with new interesting dishes … Open
A great example is local gastronomy, which rarely accepts any radical innovations or changes. Many of the dishes that are now popular with locals were cooked by their ancestors hundreds of years ago. Interestingly, cooking practices have remained unchanged since then. Since Osnabruck is now a major international tourism center, it has restaurants and bars of all possible profiles. However, local residents still prefer their favorite pubs, which serve dishes from local products familiar to them from childhood.
Windows Cozy pubs and bars are among their beloved night-out destinations. It is here that people meet friends and relatives, as well as relax after a hard working day. Their favorite national drink is beer, which has long ceased to be regarded as alcohol here. In the region, they brew special light beers allowed in small quantities even for children. Local residents do not see anything reprehensible in such behavior. Don't be surprised seeing some office workers sitting at the next table over a glass of icy beer in the middle of a working day - this has long been the norm here.
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 … Open
Besides the love for traditional cuisine, Osnabruck residents are distinguished by their love for nature. This character trait manifests itself through the variety of well-groomed parks and gardens presented in the city. Citizens are so concerned about their hometown's beautification that they made themselves an artificial lake in a picturesque park and called them Rubbenbruchsee many years ago. The lake shores are now equipped with comfortable recreation areas and picnic sites. Local parks are never empty in good weather. For Osnabruck residents, outdoor recreation is one of the most popular ways of spending leisure.
