Blomberg - the small, attractive town lying between the Teutoburg Forest and the River Weser invites you to visit and to stay.
Living in Blomberg means...
... a long history:
The Town of Blomberg was founded in around 1250 by the Lippish nobleman Bernhard III. The town was for centuries the seat of the Lippish nobility. Many of the districts of Blomberg are actually much older than the town itself.
... 18 vibrant districts:
The previously independent villages, which were incorporated into Blomberg in 1970, have preserved and deepened their own individual character. They are adorable communities where the living is good, which complement Blomberg just like ‘salt in the soup'.
... a great deal of historical substance:
With 160 listed buildings, an old town wall, many ensembles of rural buildings, the only town gate still existing in Lippe and magnificent streets, Blomberg and its districts are a historical feast for the eyes.
... attractive village centres and urban squares:
Attractive squares for meeting and mingling can be found both in the districts and in the centre of the old town. These squares enliven the community and promote a sense of togetherness.
... a wide range of retail trade and local supermarkets:
These days, a town without local supermarkets and an agile retail trade is inconceivable. Blomberg has both and we make every effort to ensure that this remains the case.
... handball at the highest level:
For many years now, the HSG ladies’ team have played at the highest level in the 1st Division of the Bundesliga and they contest their home games in the fully renovated “Halle an der Ulmenallee”.
... living in history and inmodernity:
Those who like to live in historic buildings will find old half-timbered houses in both the districts and in the historical town centre. Modern settlements and attractive building land offer a living environment to the most modern of standards.
... a complete educational offer and family and career compatibility:
From pre-school care through to grammar school, Blomberg provides an educational offer that satisfies all modern requirements and which has family and career compatibility as its particular focus.
... an active society scene:
The societies on offer range from the carrier-pigeon association through to the golf club. There is something for everyone here, who wants to enjoy his or her hobby with others in a club of some kind.
... festive highlights that enchant the town every year:
The large town centre marksmen’s fair, the carnation festival with the ‘Blumencorso’ flower parade, the potato festival, the art wall and the many village festivals are events that always provide colourful diversity and a festive atmosphere.
... a varied range of cultural offerings:
From the craftwork event in the wine cellar to the Blomberg Song Festival in the "Alte Meierei” house of culture, the city offers a rich cultural program. The library and the town archive invite you to browse and research.
... friendly people:
The Lippers are generally thought to be stubborn. But who is to say people who are restrained at first are unfriendly. Give the Blombergers a chance first!
... a wonderful surrounding area:
Gently rolling hills and sweeping views into the Blomberg Basin invite you to take a hike along the 42 kilometre long “Nelkenweg” (‘Carnation Way’) through the districts of Blomberger and the urban forest.
