Salzkotten

4.3
Salzkotten is a town in the district of Paderborn, in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The name Salzkotten (English: Salt cottage) is based on the former salt production, which gave Salzkotten its raison d'être. Salt was found in the salty springs around the city.GeographySalzkotten is situated at the border between the flat park landscape of the Münsterland in the north, the Soest Börde in the west and the dry rocky mountains with many forests in the south. It has many small fountains and rivers bringing water from the mountains to the Rhine. It is located approximately 12 km south-west of Paderborn.Administrational divisionIn 1975, the then city of Salzkotten was merged with nine municipalities to form the new city of Salzkotten :Schwelle is commonly called United States of Holsen-Schwelle-Winkhausen because of its 3 tiny villages.IndustryThe economy of Salzkotten today focusses upon metal mining and refinery, machine manufacture, electronics, food production and services.Resident Companies:Reineke Brot The bakery Reineke Brot founded in 1889 by Johann and Theresa Reineke and still in the ownership of the family.
