According to legend, the donkey of the Bremen Town Musicians decided to form a band together with the dog, cat and rooster when he was in Vechta. The journey would not have been far because the district and university town of Vechta is only a stone’s throw away from Bremen, as well as Oldenburg and Osnabrück. The good connections to these cities make for metropolitan flair. The city of Vechta has around 32,000 inhabitants and continues to grow. As an economically strong region, the Oldenburg Münsterland, where the city of Vechta is located, attracts many families and young people. With a low unemployment rate and a high birth rate, Vechta is a young and dynamic city, ideal for living, studying and working.


The city marketing association Moin Vechta is dedicated to the more than 31,000 citizens of our city who make Vechta an exceptional, liveable and successful place of creation and living. This is where you not only are at home, but also feel at home. First-semester students receive 300 points on the “Vechta punktet” card as a gift and can redeem the points at retail stores in the city of Vechta.
