It is situated on the lake Zwischenahner Meer, approx. 15 km northwest of Oldenburg, and about 70 km south of the North Sea coast.HistoryDuring World War II it was the home base of the largest Luftwaffe airbase in northern Germany, with Jagdgeschwader 400 operating the Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet rocket fighter from the base, which was heavily bombed. Following the War, the airbase was converted to a golf course.EconomyThe main economic activities of Bad Zwischenahn were and are based on tree nurseries, the food industry, and resort community services for the well to do urban population of Oldenburg and Bremen.
