The Oldenburger Land

The Oldenburger Land is a region in Lower Saxony in the area of ​​the former territories or federal states Grafschaft Oldenburg (until 1774) / Niederstift Münster (until 1803), Duchy of Oldenburg (until 1815), Grand Duchy of Oldenburg (until 1918), Free State of Oldenburg (until 1946) and the administrative district of Oldenburg (until 1978) without its enclaves, along the rivers Hunte and Hase . As a landscape association , it is represented by the Oldenburg landscape . In the region between Waterkant , Dümmer and Damme Hills speaking partly still low German , in Saterland also Sater Frisian . Old Lower Saxon customs are particularly cultivated in this region, such as B. Schützenfeste or Kohlfahrten . Typical sports are, as in East Friesland , Klootschießen and Boßeln .

The Catholic southern part of the Oldenburger Land is called Oldenburger Münsterland , the Protestant northern part is called Oldenburger Land (Altoldenburg) in the narrower sense .

In addition to the cities of Oldenburg, Wilhelmshaven and Delmenhorst, the districts of Friesland , Ammerland , Oldenburg , Cloppenburg , Wesermarsch and Vechta correspond to the Oldenburger Land . As part of the district area reforms of the 1970s, however, the former Oldenburg community of Stuhr was incorporated into the district of Diepholz , while from there the joint community of Harpstedt was attached to the district of Oldenburg.

Within the framework of some institutions such as the Landessparkasse zu Oldenburg , the Oldenburger Schützenbund , the Oldenburg State Church or the Oldenburg Official District of the Roman Catholic Church, the borders of the Oldenburg region are largely clear to this day. Furthermore, the CDU has its own regional association in Oldenburg , the FDP a corresponding district association.
