The Friedensroute leads through Bad Iburg , a cycle path that commemorates the peace treaty of 1648 to end the Thirty Years War , which was negotiated in Osnabrück and Münster . The Hermannsweg , a hiking trail, leads through the area of the city on the Dörenberg and the Großer Freeden .
In the summer of 2018 (April 18 to October 14) the community hosted the Lower Saxony State Garden Show 2018 .
The Teutoburg Forest covers roughly the northern half of Bad Iburg. The city is one of the most densely forested communities in western Lower Saxony. The highest point is the Dörenberg (331.2 meters) on the northern border of the city. In the urban area lies the Freeden with the Great Freeden (269 meters) and the Little Freeden (200 meters), which is part of the European Natural Heritage. The Hohnsberg (241.9 meters), where the Düte rises, is located near the Freeden in the urban area . The mountain has been geologically explored since the 19th century and with the fossils found there such as the fern frond fossilization Zamites iburgensis Hosius uvd Marck and the mussel fossil Pinna iburgensis Weerth, the name of the site is borne in the world of geological science. The Limberg (194.3 meters), which is adjacent to the Hohnsberg and where the Zeppelin LZ 7 "Germany" crashed in 1910, is part of the urban area . To the north-west of the city center is the Urberg (213 meters), where a Catholic mothers' sanatorium was located from 1964 to 1998. Limestone was mined on several mountains in the Iburg city area in the 19th and 20th centuries, such as the Hagenberg (139.2 meters) and the Langenberg (206 meters).
The southern districts connect to the Münsterland . In the Palsterkamp state forest near Glane , the confluence of the Kolbach and Fredenbach creates the Glane , which here still bears the name Glaner Bach .
Bad Iburg borders in the north on Hagen am Teutoburger Wald and Georgsmarienhütte , in the east on Hilter am Teutoburger Wald , in the south on Bad Laer and Glandorf and in the west on Lienen in North Rhine-Westphalia ( Steinfurt district ).
The Franconian Reichsannalen mention an Iburg 753 when the Archbishop of Cologne Hildegar was killed by the Saxons there. In 772, Charlemagne conquered the lofty royal castle of Iburg against his adversary, Duke Widukind . For the second time, 783 Frankish soldiers captured the Iburg. Iburg gained importance beyond the region in the eleventh century. Bishop Benno I built a castle between 1052 and 1068. The most important builder was Bishop Benno II , the first bishop of the Osnabrück region . From 1068 to 1088 he had a monastery castle and a Benedictine monastery built on the ruins of the old Karlsburg . Benno had special historical weight through his mediation in the investiture dispute between the German King Heinrich IV. , His friend, and Pope Gregory VII. When going to Canossa in 1077.
Around 1100, after the great fire in Osnabrück , the Iburg became the permanent residence of the Osnabrück bishops.
In 1226 the construction of the St. Nikolaus church began. This also gave the people who had settled at the foot of the castle hill their own church. In 1254 Iburg was given city rights by Prince-Bishop Bruno von Isenberg ; he fortified the place. In 1293 Iburg was mentioned as “oppidum”, a town-like settlement with a “porta” in the east. Lightning and a fire caused by it destroyed the castle and the monastery in 1349.
In 1359 Iburg received the Wigbold privilege . This brought the castle and town together with a council and a common constitution. The spot was under Prince-Bishop Konrad III from 1455 to 1482 . surrounded with walls; three gates gave access. Iburg received a water supply in 1518 when Prior Frerking had a water pipe laid from Dörenberg to the monastery.

In the Peace of Westphalia in Münster in 1648, the "Alternatio" (alternation) was worked out as a compromise because of the confessional mixing. Catholic and Protestant prince-bishops took turns. The first Protestant regional bishop was Elector Ernst August I of Braunschweig-Lüneburg .
In 1650, Prince-Bishop Franz Wilhelm von Wartenberg returned to the residence in Iburg.

In 1662, Elector Ernst August I of Braunschweig-Lüneburg became the first Protestant Prince-Bishop of Osnabrück, in accordance with the peace treaty of 1648, which provided for a change between Catholic and Protestant bishops. In 1668 his daughter Sophie Charlotte was born on the Iburg. She later became the first queen in Prussia, mother of the soldier king and grandmother of Frederick the Great. The Charlottenburg Palace and the district of the same name in Berlin are named after her. The era of the Osnabrück bishops in Iburg ended in 1672 when Ernst August I moved into the new Osnabrück Castle . The Iburger Residenz was given up.
Between 1750 and 1755, a spacious new baroque monastery was built on the Burgberg by the Westphalian baroque master builder and electoral general Johann Conrad Schlaun . The monastery existed until 1803 when it was closed due to secularization . In 1885 the administration of the Iburg district took its seat in the castle.
With the establishment of the Beautification Association in 1887, the first basis for the later tourist development was laid in the patch. The association made it its task to create hiking trails and set up benches.
In 1929 the Mäscher farmers were incorporated into Iburg. In 1932 the Iburg district was dissolved; the seat of the district administrator was henceforth in Osnabrück.
In 1932 and 1933 the Charlottensee was created at the foot of the Schlossberg. The initiator was the Iburger Kurverein, which was founded in 1932 at the suggestion of the later honorary citizen Robert Hülsemann.
In 1934 the SA sports school was set up in Iburg Castle , which existed until 1939. From 1942 to 1945 the German home school Schloß Iburg was located in the castle . In 1948 the Lower Saxony home school Iburg was housed in the castle. It existed until 1971.
British troops occupied Iburg in the Easter week of 1945 without a fight. Mayor Hermann Rinklake had previously made the last soldiers of the Wehrmacht leave the area. Rinklage was appointed honorary mayor on September 3, 1946 by resolution of the municipal council.
In 1953, the summer resort from the time before the First World War and the climatic health resort of the 1920s became the Kneipp health resort Iburg.

The tradition of Schnatgang has recently been revived in Bad Iburg . A memorial stone was erected on the Karlsplatz of the Dörenberg in memory of the Schnautgang 2002.
Despite the promotion of (Bad) Iburg as a health resort for decades, the city's health sector is in a permanent crisis: the city no longer has a general hospital since the Catholic St. Franziskus Hospital was converted into a nursing home. The Kassen sanatorium, formerly a health clinic, is now a dormitory for mentally disabled people.
In 1970 the districts of Glane-Visbeck, Sentrup and Ostenfelde were combined to form the municipality of Glane. On July 1, 1972, the town of Bad Iburg was united with the entire community of Glane and the unified community of Bad Iburg was founded.
The following overview shows the population of Bad Iburg in each area and on December 31st.
The figures are updates by the State Office for Statistics and Communication Technology Lower Saxony based on the census of May 25, 1987 .
The data from 1961 (June 6th) and 1970 (May 27th) are the census results including Glane.
Earlier place names of Iburg were in the years 753 Iuburg, 754 Iburg, 1070 Yburg, 1175 Yburch, 1350 Yburgh. The place name is probably a formation with the basic word "- castle ". The first part of the name goes back to the Middle Low German word “iwe” for “ yew ”. The place where the castle was built was probably originally called "Iw-berg" for "Eibenberg".
The city council currently has 27 members from four parties or groups and one individual applicant (Moormann). The mayor is also the chairwoman of the council with voting rights.
The following table shows the local election results since 1996.

On July 15, 2005, the majority of the council resigned. The deputies also waived their mandate. Only the two council members of Alliance 90 / The Greens retained their mandate. A new election was originally planned for November 2005. On August 30, 2005, the Osnabrück Administrative Court declared the resignation declarations of the 27 council members invalid, as they had the purpose of dissolving the city council and bringing about a new election. The court decided that the dissolution of the council initiated by the council members through mass resignations was illegal and therefore legally ineffective. The appeal to the Lüneburg Higher Administrative Court was approved.
After examining the legal grounds for the judgment, the Council did not appeal. Only council member Andreas Heuer from the Community for Bad Iburg (GfB) lodged an objection. Bad Iburg was administered without advice. Council members were of the opinion that the then city director Karl Schade wanted to heave himself into the office of full-time mayor before the end of his tenure as city director. The local authority lifted the resignations. With that, all council members were back in office, except for Andreas Heuer, who had lodged an objection. This had no influence on the existence of the council as a whole. This enabled the Council to meet again from November 27, 2005 after the medium deadline for redress had expired. Ordinary elections were held at the end of the term of office. In the early mayor election in March 2006, Drago Jurak (independent) was elected the first full-time mayor of Bad Iburg.
In the local elections in 2016 , the Bad Iburger FDP won the most votes. The CDU lost 33 percentage points compared to the last election. The main reason for the spectacular shift in the balance of power in the Bad Iburger city council is that the CDU rejected the organization of the state horticultural show, while the FDP campaigned for it from the start. In a referendum on December 6, 2015, 3,012 citizens of Bad Iburg voted for the state garden show, in 1923 against.
On February 23, 2014, the citizens elected Annette Niermann Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen as mayor of Bad Iburg with an absolute majority of 53.3 percent . Niermann ran as a candidate against Thomas Riepenhoff (CDU) and Hans-Josef Geesen (SPD) and is the first female mayor in Lower Saxony with a green party membership card.

Bad Iburg has three primary schools, a secondary school, a secondary school and a grammar school.
A specialty of the school system in Bad Iburg was the denominational separation at municipal schools until the second half of the 20th century. It was due to the imbalance between the Roman Catholic majority and the Protestant minority. The population of Protestants, who until the end of the Second World War mainly performed tasks in the administration of the former Iburg district or worked in the district court, grew after the end of the war due to refugees and displaced persons and especially since the 1970s when Bad Iburg became a preferred place of residence in southern district of Osnabrück was. The denominational separation of schools was not completely given up until 1994. From around 1900 until it was closed in 1941, the private rectorate school in Iburger prepared boys and later also girls for attending a secondary school where they could take their Abitur. The school building was demolished and a memorial stone with an inscription was put up at the previous location near the St. Nicholas Church in St. Nicholas. From 1942 to 1945 the Deutsche Heimschule Schloß Iburg , founded by the National Socialists, accepted Iburg students as external students.
Primary schools are the primary school on Hagenberg in the center of Bad Iburg and the primary schools in Glane and Ostenfelde. All three schools are so-called Reliable Elementary Schools . The primary school at Hagenberg was built in 1959 as a primary school, which ended with the eighth grade. Until then, the Iburg students had been taught in various buildings in the center of the town since the end of World War II. At the decision of the council, a two-wing school complex was built around a shared schoolyard. The Protestant elementary school was housed in a one-story wing with three classes, the Catholic elementary school in a two-story wing with seven classes. The wings were connected by a one-story building in which sanitary rooms were housed. Classes began in September 1959. Mixed denominational lessons were offered in Bad Iburg for the first time with the introduction of the initially voluntary ninth school year at elementary schools in Lower Saxony, initially only for students in the ninth year. In 1964 the elementary school was divided into a primary school and a secondary school. Until 1993/1994, classes were taught separately according to denomination at the primary school on Hagenberg.
The denominationally separate secondary schools were merged in 1969 and merged with the secondary school classes in Glane, Sentrup and Ostenfelde. Since 1972, the Bad Iburg secondary school has been located in the school center on Bielefelder Straße.
Bad Iburg has a secondary school and, since 1972, a grammar school run by the district of Osnabrück. Up until 1971, Iburger pupils had the opportunity to attend the Lower Saxony home school Iburg in the castle as external high school students. The state of Lower Saxony operated the high school in short form between 1948 and 1971 as a boarding school. The Bad Iburg grammar school, a European school , was opened in 1972 and its history refers to the Lower Saxony home school Iburg.
