…in the “mills district” between the river Weser and the Wiehengebirge mountains

The main production site of IMA Schelling in Germany is Lübbecke in East Westphalia – 1200 years old, with around 27,000 inhabitants, a lively city centre and numerous sightseeing opportunities.

Lübbecke is situated in the Minden-Lübbecke district, also called “mills district”. The district got its name for a good reason: 42 functional wind, water and horse-driven mills as well as Germany's only operational ship mill are the symbols of this region. In no other region of Germany can you find such a variety of mills. But the “mills district“ offers a lot more than just mills: plenty of nature, affordable living space, a number of clubs and a polytechnic. In addition to that, Lübbecke is a centre of the East Westphalian industry and hence it has a good infrastructure.

Plenty of culture and nature

Not only the mills, but also a great number of old manor houses make the 'mills district' a popular destination for many visitors. Quite a few museums such as the Minden Museum, the Brewery Museum (“Brauereimuseum”) in Lübbecke, the Stork Museum (“Storchenmuseum”) in Petershagen-Windheim or the German Museum of Gambling Machines (“Deutsches Automatenmuseum”) in Espelkamp come up with fascinating exhibitions. And in the indoor theatres and open air theatres of the region, the curtain rises again and again.

However, the mills district not only attracts visitors with it museums and theatres. It also offers optimal conditions for staying fit, vital and healthy. The healing properties of its soil lay the ground for spas and health resorts (with particularly good air). Also the beautiful landscape with the Gehlenbeck bog, the riverside cycle path along the river Weser or the Mittelland Canal invite you to go on a cycling tour or take a long walk to see the stunning scenery.

Sports in the mills district

If you are a sport fans there's plenty for you to do in the mills district. Here we have more than 500 sport clubs and also the premier handball league. With TuS N-Lübbecke and TSV GWD Minden, no less than two of our teams are successfully playing in the premier handball league. And we are well-placed in the field of football as well: once a year, the Freeway Cup – i.e. the unofficial German Under-16 Indoor Football Championship – and the international A Juniors tournament in Stemwede take place. At these tournaments, the mills district team plays against teams from clubs like FC Bayern München, SV Werder Bremen or Hannover 96. But the "mills district“ offers a lot also for other sport disciplines: besides centres of excellence for handball, athletics, rowing and volleyball, this also includes numerous indoor and outdoor baths as well as adventure baths, bowling alleys, skittle alleys, fitness studios, and a lot more.
