Leisure Activities in Vechta

Vechta is in a rural area but still central. The city-triangle Bremen - Oldenburg - Osnabrück offers big city flair. But Vechta has things to offer as well: The district is one of the strongest industrial area in the Northwest. Because of its low unemployment rate and high birth rate Vechta is a young, dynamic town.

From nature parks to horse auctions to a vivid night life: Vechta has something for everyone- sports, culture or something for nightowls.
