The city of Meppen

The green city - threaded by waterways
Away from the hectic atmosphere of big cities, at the western edge of Lower Saxony and only about 20km from the border to the Newtherlands lies the old citadel town of Meppen, whose historic roots go back more than 1200 years. This administrative seat of the Emsland county borough with its growing economy and comprehensive choice of schools and colleges, sports and cultural events as well as leisure activities offers a high quality of life not only to its inhabitants but also to an ever growing number of guests, who have the opportunity to stay at the guesthouse for youth and cultural events, for example.

Ausstellungszentrum für die Archäologie des Emslandes
(Exhibiton centre for the archaeology of the Emsland region)

The centre offers an insight into the eventful history of the Emsland region: original finds, reconstructions and models from prehistory and early history to the early Middle Ages in Emsland show proof of an eventful history in this region between the Ems and Hase rivers. Focus is put on the Neolithic period with its typical megalithic graves, which still today shape the character of the Emsland landscape. Activities range from workshops on experimental archaeology and museum festivals to excursions to archaeologically typical features of the area. Personal experience thus leads to an understanding of the cultural history of the region.
