The wonderful Mühlenkreis district
Only Mühlenkreis allows you to discover such a diverse range of historic mills. From windmills, watermills and horse mills through to the only original reconstructed and working ship mill in Germany, a total of 43 mills form a unique open-air museum that shapes the appearance of the region and invites visitors to enjoy leisurely sightseeing tours by bike.
The region has a lot to offer not only in terms of its idyllic setting, but also when it comes to education. The Minden Campus of Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences offers a wide range of courses, from computer science to mechanical engineering and industrial engineering.
Hiking experiences and sightseeing tours
The Weser and Wiehen hills offer the ideal terrain for hikers, with the Great Peat Bog offering one of many breathtaking views across a natural and rare landscape covered by extensive hiking trails. An equally popular destination is the Staatsbad Bad Oeynhausen – one of the most beautiful spa resorts in Germany and a wonderful haven of peace in the heart of the city.
Cultural highlights in an idyllic setting
The city centre of Minden is a real cultural and historical highlight. At the heart of the 1200-year-old district town are the majestic cathedral and various impressive architectural monuments, showcasing an exquisite blend of Prussian Neoclassical style and the distinct Weser Renaissance. There are also various spectacular castles and manor houses to discover throughout the district, which make for an exciting contrast to the idyllic farming villages along the Weser and Wiehen rivers. For those who like a show, the Stadttheater Minden offers a varied programme ranging from musical productions to comedy nights.
Work/life balance and leisure activities
As one of the major leisure and recreation regions in North Rhine-Westphalia, the Mühlenkreis district offers the perfect environment for an ideal work-life balance. Having so many leisure and cultural opportunities across the region means our employees never have to choose between their family life and their career. Whether it’s a discovery tour deep underground in the Kleinenbremen mine or a family outing to Potts Park, there really is something for everyone to enjoy in Mühlenkreis.
