Lingen is a small German town in Lower Saxony. With a history going back to medieval times, its location on the Ems River has been crucial for its growth. Today, Lingen is known for its educational institutions and energy sector due to a university and a nearby nuclear power plant.

The historic Town Hall, from the 16th century, shows the town's long past. In contrast, the dynamic University of Applied Sciences brings a youthful vibe and innovation.

Local cultural events are lively, with the annual Lingener May Week festival offering music, food, and fun that represent regional customs. Those interested in the performing arts should see the Theater an der Wilhelmshöhe, with performances year-round.

History enthusiasts will like the Lingen Powder Tower, part of the old town defenses, while art fans can visit the Emslandmuseum for art and history displays. The Kivelingsfest, a festival every two years, recreates the town's history with costumes, jousting, and markets.
