It is situated near the Jade River and the Jade Bight, approximately 15km south of Wilhelmshaven and 30km north of Oldenburg.Castle churchThe castle church is the oldest building in Varel. The first part of the church is believed to have been built in 1144. The tower was added between 1200 and 1250, originally as twin towers, which were rebuilt in today's form first in 1651 and then in 1737. The altar, font and pulpit were carved in 1613 – 1618 by Ludwig Münstermann. The altar is nearly 10m high and is one of the main works of Northern German Mannerism.Before the Protestant Reformation, the patron saint was Saint Peter. Today, the castle church is a Lutheran church, with no patron saint. The church was formerly one of the buildings of the castle, which was demolished in the 19th century soon after a fire destroyed most parts of it.Notable natives Hildegard Behrens (1937–2009), dramatic soprano Heiko Daxl (born 1957) Erich Heckel Massiv in Mensch Karl Schmidt-Rottluff Lothar Meyer (1830–1895) Johann Gerhard Oncken (1800–1884) Carl Carls (1880–1958) Friedrich Wegener (1907–1990) Hans-Paul Bürkner (born 1951), CEO of the Boston Consulting Group Markus Eichler (born 1982) Frank Simoleit (born 1979), Radiohost/presenter Big FM Germany
