Blomberg and its districts
“The small town that has everything" is the slogan with which Blomberg likes to adorn itself.
In the market place, you can catch sight of the "Alheyd” fountain and the town hall, which is over 425 years old. Not far from there are the castle, monastery church and Martini Tower - all buildings, which have shaped the image of the city over the many centuries and which continue to do so to this day.
Outside of the old town, on the ‘Ulmenallee” and “Ostring”, you can find the large school and sports centre, which is home to secondary schools, an indoor pool, a stadium and two large sports halls. HSG Blomberg-Lippe contest their home games in the Ladies’ Handball League in one of these, which was only recently renovated and expanded into a true showcase sports venue. Alongside this competitive sporting aspect, HSG also contributes to wider-participation sports and additionally promotes young players in their own hand ball boarding school, which is closely networked with the schools in Blomberger.
Blomberg is also absolutely worth a look in terms of its industrial sector. The largest employer is the company Phoenix Contact, which employs several thousand employees here.
The small town, which excluding its districts has around 8,000 inhabitants is just right for anyone who wants to get a bit closer to nature. The 42 kilometres of the “Carnation Way” offer hikers the opportunity to foray through the Blomberger Basin.
On top of this, the districts of Blomberg also have much to offer.
The west of the large municipality is sport-oriented. One of the three golf courses in the district of Lippe is in Cappel. The first round of golf was held at the park-like 18-hole course as early as June of 1983 with the well-known golf professional Bernhard Langer.
Cohesion is also written large in all of the 18 districts. The numerous associations and interest groups bear witness to a concern for the common good here.
The predecessor of the church at Cappel was erected in the year 800 as a chapel, and it was probably the first Christian church in Lippe.
Reelkirchen has a moated castle. Wilbasen, which nowadays belongs to Siebenhöfen achieved fame as a place of pilgrimage in the 14th century and in the 15th century for the Wilbasen Market, which as the largest stubble field fair in Lippe still takes place on the second weekend of September in front the gates of the Carnation Town.
