About this picture

Hasbergen is a municipality in the district of Osnabrück in Lower Saxony .


The place is partly in the area of ​​the Hüggel , which belongs to the landscape protection area Teutoburg Forest . The altitude ranges from 62 m to 228 m above sea level. The 108 meter high Rote Berg is located in Hasbergen . On the northern edge of the village, the Wilkenbach forms the border with the neighboring city of Osnabrück .

Neighboring communities

The community borders in the west on the Westphalian communities Lotte and Tecklenburg , in the south on Georgsmarienhütte and Hagen and in the north and east on the city of Osnabrück .

Community structure

Today's Hasbergen consists of the formerly independent communities Hasbergen, Gaste and Ohrbeck.


Hasbergen was mentioned for the first time in a document from the Corvey monastery in 836. The name Hasbergen is derived from the Old Low German word Hers or Hors (for Ross). The name Haslage , as the former castle and the estate in the southwest of the town were called, probably developed from this .

In 1819 the Augusta mine in Ohrbeck was set up for ore mining; it is located on the border with the neighboring community of Georgsmarienhütte and served as a prison camp in 1944/1945, which is now a memorial.

Redesign of the town center

As part of the redesign of the town center, a redesign of the town center, which suffered from the wave of modernization in the 1970s, is currently being pushed ahead.

The tunneling of the Hamburg-Cologne railway line , which was completed in mid-2005, can be seen as a milestone . This made it possible to abolish the two barrier systems, which had led to considerable traffic disruption.

In 2006 a pedestrian bridge was built on Tecklenburger Straße to shorten detours for pedestrians and cyclists. In 2010 the Kunterbunt kindergarten was expanded to include a day nursery. In 2011, the station and the adjacent area were largely rebuilt. New parking areas were created. The former station building is now used as an office building.

In 2011/2012 the parish hall of the Protestant church was completely demolished and rebuilt in the same place.


As part of the administrative and territorial reform, the communities of Gaste and Ohrbeck voluntarily joined the Hasbergen community on January 1, 1971.
