Osnabrück holiday rentals – holiday in the city of peace
Osnabrück is the fourth largest city in Lower Saxony, located just north of Münster and Bielefeld. Nicknamed the city of peace because the Peace of Westphalia was signed there in 1648, these days it's also a lively student city, with plenty to do during the day and the night. Families, couples, friends, and solo travellers will enjoy staying in an Osnabrück holiday rental.
The city hosts plenty of great annual cultural events, so why not book a holiday rental Osnabrück during the spring festival Maiwoche, or during the Volksfest, or the Schützenfest (shooting festival), or during Weinfest, or the Christmas Market. During the summer, there's an ongoing “Sommer in der Stadt” cultural programme, so there is sure to be something great happening whenever you arrive.
Osnabrück is home to a fantastic zoo, which families with children of all ages will enjoy, and the Felix Nussbaum House art museum. The bright yellow baroque palace Schloss Osnabrück, which is now home to the administrative department of the university, as well as a moving memorial and exhibition in remembrance of the Gestapo holding cells and torture chambers that occupied the cellars during the Nazi era. In stark contrast, the palace gardens, complete with sculptures, are a lovely place to take a walk. There are also plenty of cycle paths within reach of Osnabrück holiday rentals if you are after an active family holiday.
