1. Stadttheater

Show sight on map

The Landesbühne Niedersachsen Nord (LBNN) is a theater founded in 1952 with a location in Wilhelmshaven. Emerged from the East Frisian state stage in Leer, today it is one of two state stages in Lower Saxony. One of the peculiarities of these houses is that they not only provide their place and administrative seat with theater art, but also a large playing area in rural areas. In the case of the Landesbühne Niedersachsen North, which still traveled to the Lüneburg Heath in the 1950s, the venues changed annually. Today the theater presents its productions in a region inhabited, which extends from East Frisia via Emsland to the Oldenburg Münsterland.

In 1959 it was reconsecrated and given the double name "Christ and Garrison Church", which is intended to commemorate the parish's Christ Church, which was also destroyed in the Second World War.
