Welcome to Osnabrück the City of Peace!
Osnabrück, the third largest city in Lower Saxony is known worldwide as the city of peace. In 1648 the negotiations of the Treaty of Westphalia took place here, the signing of which ended the 30-year war in Europe. Osnabrück is also the birthplace of Erich Maria Remarque, one of the most important German writers. He is one of the most important humanists and anti-war writers of the 20th Century. Another artist, whose hometown was also Osnabrück, is Felix Nussbaum. Like no other painter of the first half of the century, Felix Nussbaum has captured in his paintings all the events of the decades following the First World War.
