City in Germany
Osnabrück is a typical mid-sized Lower Saxon city. It is home to around 165,000 people and surveys have proved them to be the most satisfied citizens in Germany. Osnabrück has seen its share of history and war. It was one of the two cities (together with Münster) where negotiations to end the Thirty Years War took place and the peace treaty (The "Westphalian peace" as it is often known) was signed. Later over two thirds of the city was then destroyed in World War II.
