Bielefeld

3.7
Historically a center of Europe’s linen industry, Bielefeld today combines rich local culture with a tradition of innovation and commercial development. Damaged during the Second World War, the city underwent several renovations that have helped to restore its medieval elegance and atmosphere. As one of Germany’s centers of industry, Bielefeld is home to a number of international companies, some of which originated from the area. Thanks to its high-tech universities and institutions, considered to be amongst the best in Germany, the student population is relatively large and ensures a vibrant urban nightlife. The cityscape is dominated by the lush Teutoburg Forest, meaning that outdoor opportunities and peaceful green spaces abound despite Bielefeld’s futuristic attitude. Bielefeld is in North Rhine-Westphalia. Before you visit Germany, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
