Welcome to the English Website of the City of Oldenburg!

Oldenburg is a modern and growing city with a tremendous quality of life and more than 170,000 inhabitants. Irrespective of whether you want to enjoy Oldenburg as a tourist, come as a student or plan to live and work in our beautiful city – you are always welcome!

We invest in new housing, more places in daycare centres and, of course, in a necessary infrastructure with streets, educational institutions or the prerequisites for the digital future. All the above-mentioned points are important conditions for participation in events and life in our city.

For many years, these topics have been the focus of my work and successes are visible in many places. At the moment, numerous flats and houses are built in all districts of Oldenburg. Since 2014, we have invested more than 130 million euros in care facilities. Other objectives of our work are a good cultural and educational offer as well as a strong commitment to climate protection.

Oldenburg offers an abundance of leisure activities as well as support for education and integration. With the Carl von Ossietzky University, the Jade University of Applied Sciences, the Private University of Applied Sciences for Business and Engineering as well as more than 70 schools of general education, vocational colleges, technical colleges and private schools, we are the region's centre of education. Our thriving economy also offers excellent prospects to companies.

These are just some examples of a successful and positive urban development which makes Oldenburg such a lively and attractive city. Convince yourself – Oldenburg is always worth a visit!

Last but not least: Your ideas are very important to me. Please contact me if you have any suggestions, ideas, worries or troubles.

Best regards,
Jürgen Krogmann
Mayor
