Oldenburg / Germany
Oldenburg is a city in Lower Saxony between Bremen and the Dutch city of Groningen. Oldenburg is connected to the German inland waterway network via the coastal channel that connects the Weser and Ems. With 1.6 million tonnes, the port of Oldenburg is the most important inland port of Lower Saxony. Through the urban area flow two rivers, the Hunte and the Haaren.
The starting point of a small town stroll is the castle of the counts, dukes and Grand Dukes of Oldenburg (Central Building of 1607). Opposite the castle is the Neue Wache (1839), one of the typical classicist buildings in Oldenburg.
The Horst-Janssen-Museum is located on the site of the city museum Oldenburg. In it works of the illustrator and graphic artist Horst Janssen and related artists are exhibited.
