People here take pride in their work, and the town has become noted for its prowess. Plastics production, wind farms, cork manufacturing and cosmetics are just a few examples of the town’s modern industrial scene.
Locals will tell you that Lohne’s growth and success has been based upon a combination of factors. Excellent transportation, plentiful energy resources, and an intelligence labor force are supported by a municipal government that understands the economics of developing business. But there is another quality at work here… or perhaps we should say “at play.”
The people of Lohne know how to relax. They know life cannot be all serious and no fun. You can see this in the many facilities they have devoted to their leisure time.
Take the Waldbad outdoor bathing park, for instance. Here you can splash in the pool, slip down the giant slide, and let you inner child frolic at the water castle with its drawbridge or aboard a beached pirate ship.
The town has also prepared for your recreation pleasure no fewer than ten sports halls, eleven playing fields, nine tennis courts and an 18-hole golf course, along with bowling alleys, cycling paths, horseback riding trails and skating rinks. And as for spectator events, there is the Heinz-Dettmer stadium, featuring a covered grandstand.
Another major attraction for you here is the Industrial Museum. This is where you can learn about such diverse subjects as the beginnings of industrialization, the production of quill writing pens, a history of brush making, cigar manufacturing, and the development of the cork industry. A functioning steam engine is also on display.
Art and culture are frequently cited among the town’s finest attributes. Here you can find music, theater, and art exhibitions, as well as a nationally renowned event known as Lohner Kulturtage. It is an annual celebration of entertainment, held for ten straight days each April since 1988.
Why not make plans to enjoy yourself in Lohne soon? :-)
