Welcome to Lahr...

...a great place to visit, live and work!

Lahr is an attractive industrial hotspot – set in the wonderful scenery of the Rhine Valley and the Black Forest.

My advice for your first visit to Lahr?

Explore the buzzling streets of our city center. Discover our town's amazing history in our brand new museum. Relax at the shores of the newly build lake and the beautiful recreational area that surrounds it. And finish the day in one of our excellent restaurants with typical regional food, refined with great locally sourced beverages such as the famous wine of the Rhine Valley and different sorts of german beer!

A wide range of cultural, social and sporting events take place in Lahr throughout the year. Whether you visit us in spring to treat your kids to a show at the regional puppet festival or in autumn to enjoy the delights of our three-week long festival Chrysanthema with your friends – we will always welcome you with a smile.

All the best,

Lord Mayor Markus Ibert
