Location of Lintel in Rheda-Wiedenbrück

Lintel is a district in the East Westphalian Rheda-Wiedenbrück in the Gütersloh district . Lintel covers an area of ​​2,175.4174 hectares and has 1,562 inhabitants ( as of January 1, 2017 ). The Ems and its right tributaries Wapelbach , Ölbach , Rotenbach and Großer Bastergraben flow through the area .


The community Lintel was formed on December 10, 1888 by spinning off from the community Avenwedde .

As part of the North Rhine-Westphalian regional reform, Lintel was incorporated into the city of Rheda-Wiedenbrück on January 1, 1970 with the "Law on the reorganization of the Wiedenbrück district and parts of the Bielefeld district" of December 4, 1969. Lintel previously belonged to the Reckenberg office in the Wiedenbrück district .


Lintel is very well connected to the German trunk road network. The federal highway 2 Hanover-Dortmund runs through the village from west to east, the highway exit 23 "Rheda-Wiedenbrück - Lippstadt - Rietberg - Münster" is also on Linteler Boden. To the north of the autobahn, Bundesstraße 61 Bielefeld-Wiedenbrück runs from west to northeast, and south of the autobahn, Bundesstraße 64 Münster-Paderborn runs from northwest to southeast. The Rheda-Wiedenbrück bypass runs on the western edge of the village area from southwest to northwest, the exits B64 / Paderborn / Lintel, B61 / Wiedenbrück / Bielefeld and Gütersloher Straße / Rheda / Gütersloh are all on or near Lintel soil. Due to the shortening effect of Kapellenstrasse / Brockstrasse for commuters between Gütersloh and Rietberg / Paderborn, long lines of cars often form in the village during rush hour. In the far north of Lintel are the railway tracks on the Cologne / Ruhr area-Hamm-Bielefeld-Hanover route, which is one of the most popular railway lines in Germany. Although Lintel does not have its own train station here, it has connections to local and long-distance transport via the nearby Rheda-Wiedenbrück (IC and regional trains) and Gütersloh (ICE, IC and regional trains) stations. The former Wiedenbrück-Rietberg railway also ran over the Lintel area, but has now been closed. A cycle path has been designated along the way.
