    The VHS (Volkshochschule) of the city of Osnabrück offers about a thousand courses per semester in areas such as art, culture, fitness, media, information technology, languages, literacy, psychology, politics and society.

    The main building of the VHS (first and second photos) is a former hospital that was originally built in 1864 and was completely renovated and modernized in 1994. It is centrally located near the Heger Tor and the Felix Nussbaum Museum.

    When I visited Osnabrück in 2012 the VHS had poster advertising their language courses (fourth photo) on display in various parts of the city. The poster, which was sponsored by the VHS testing center telc, is headed Ti amo (“I love you” in Italian) followed by: “You already know the most important thing. You can learn the rest from us.”

    This hill was created between 1950 and 1985. The stones and such coming from the charcole mines were brought here. After some time the hill was covered with rich soil and cultivation started so, in time, a new recreation area will be opened for public.

    Haarmann Brunnen
    This fountain was built by somebody called Haarmann and it is a memorial of the 9 miners that were killed when water shot into a a coalmine in Osnabrück in 1893.
    It's the oldest workers memorial in Germany and I think its design is really nice...
