Short Portrait and Position

The town Bückeburg with its 20,000 inhabitants is one of the three largest towns in the county Schaumburg. Charming transitions between tradition and modern age in the town, as well as the nature forest reserve of the Bückeburg lowlands, create a town and country experience.

The picturesque small town Bückeburg is located in the north of the nature reserve Weserbergland at the foothills of the Central German uplands. The wooded mountain range Harrl forms the setting of the grand masterpiece of Bückeburg: the Weser Renaissance castle of the Princes of Schaumburg-Lippe.
Old elegant residential areas, half-timbered houses, and modern single-family home areas form a bridge between the castle and widely scattered farms.

The charming landscape of the Bückeburg lowlands and the Schaumburg forest are attached to the North German Plain which can be seen from the highest point, the Ida tower, at 212 m above sea level.

It is this mixture of old and new culture in the town and the fluent passage from fields to woods that constitute the charm of Bückeburg.
