Welcome to Minden

Diversity in one place


In the heart of East Westphalia, located in the Wiehen Mountains and on the River Weser, lies the city of Minden. This is where the diversity of the Melitta Group is concentrated – in addition to our headquarters, the city is home to our coffee filter production and two other office sites, the Cofresco technical center, the Avoury® showroom and the production facility for our Melitta Professional fully automatic coffee machines. And our inventive spirit spreads from Minden to the whole world. Our various Melitta operating divisions and numerous sales companies located around the world are managed from our base in Minden. Feel free to take a look around. The coffee is on us.

Our region

Living in Minden

That’s pretty good here. After all, there’s a lot to discover in the Ostwestfalen-Lippe region – one of the leading business locations in Germany. There’s affordable housing here. In the countryside, but centrally located with large cities not too far away. In your free time, you can enjoy a wide range of leisure activities. From sports to art and culture, to amusement parks and country walks, the possibilities are almost endless. Thanks to its strong economic base, good infrastructure and numerous universities, the region is sure to remain strong in the future.

Leisure activities

This is what the region has to offer

Interested in culture, history, nature, and city life? Then there’s no danger of getting bored in a region with some 170 museums on a wide range of topics. Our local theatre scene is also vibrant. As well as the theatre in Minden, there are others in Detmold, Paderborn and Bielefeld just around the corner – with something for the whole family. And then there are the stalactite caves and amusement parks to discover. The region also offers plenty of variety for nature lovers: the Weser Uplands end at Porta Westfalica, near Minden. This is where the monument to Kaiser Wilhelm I, clearly visible in the Wiehen Mountains, welcomes visitors to the North German Plain. Minden is located in the middle of the Mühlenkreis (windmill region) with hundreds of kilometers of hiking and cycling trails through our beautiful countryside. And you’re never far from the River Weser. There’s also plenty to do for children and young people – with a wide range of sports clubs and other regional projects such as the KulturScouts, a project for the cultural education of school classes.
