Oldenburg offers a wide range of great opportunities to organize your leisure time: Not only do various museums attract visitors with their exhibitions to the city year-round, but so does the Oldenburg State Theater with its changing schedule, and the beautiful castle garden in the heart of the city.
Throughout the year there are various events for young and old: The Kultursommer (cultural summer) in July, the City Festival in August, or the Kramer Market in October. Oldenburg also has a lot to offer in terms of athletics. The EWE Baskets have been at home in the 1st basketball Bundesliga for years, the handball ladies of the VFL Oldenburg play in the 1st handball Bundesliga, and the Oldenburg Marathon attracts many running friends to prove their running skills from around the city.
In the Olantis you can unwind and relax: In the swimming pool, swimmers can swim their laps, in the sauna and in the wellness area, you can take a break from everyday life.
If you’re looking to take a break from the city flair, you can do that, as well: In addition to many lakes, the green surroundings of Oldenburg are also ideal for discovering the very well-developed bike paths. Along the River Hunte, you can cycle through forests and meadows to the North Sea in a relaxed manner. If you want to get to the sea even faster, you should visit the Bad Zwischenahner Meer, only 18 km away – and it’s worth it!
