Vechta in Words and Pictures
A Flourishing Town - which has kept its attractive appeal
The town in which we live and work is our home and a decisive component of our quality of life. This is why we have high expectations when it comes to the attractiveness of our hometown - and rightly so. We, here in Vechta, are aware of this, and it is most important for us to offer our citizens and guests everything that continues to makes life in our town and for our visitors attractive and pleasurable: a broad offer of high-quality opportunities for leisure, culture and education, a pleasing environment, the best and proven prerequisites for successful business activities, and people that are happy to be good neighbours and friends.
The district capital and university town of Vechta, situated in the heart of North Germany in the Region of Oldenburg Munsterland, with its rural character, is favourably located in regard to traffic connections. The surrounding cities of Oldenburg, Osnabruck and Bremen are within easy and convenient reach via the A1 Autobahn.
Vechta can look back upon centuries of growth. Yet for all its modernity, in the town centre one can still breathe the atmosphere of its long history. In the newer parts of the town, sensitive care is also taken to maintain the character of Vechta as a congenial, efficient district centre with importance reaching beyond regional boundaries. The result is a community that provides a delightful place to live - a circumstance which is evidenced not least by the awards it has received as the winner of the competitions "The greenest town", "The family-friendliest community" and "The most horse-loving community".
Vechta is a town of stimulating contrasts. Embedded in a wide, cultivated countryside with wooded areas and moorlands, Vechta, at the same time, is one of the most successful business locations in the Northwest.
