CampusExpress on the way

The busline 790 connects Detmold and Lemgo already twice a day. But it's going to be much better: there will be the socalled CampusExpress in the core time between 8 am and 4 pm, which will drive hourly. With only very few stops, CampusExpress will go directly from the station in Detmold to the Innovation Campus Lemgo and back.

The campus

First thoughts about the Innovation Campus Lemgo were already considered in 2014. The aim is not only to increase the attractiveness of the whole quarter/area, to accelerate the transfer of technologies and to strengthen the international visibility. It is also to improve the innovative capability and the competitive ability of the regional economy.

To reach this goal, the value of existing areas is being increased, new spaces with high amenity value come into being and additional research facilities and companies are being settled. In 10 years the present campus will be unrecognisable.
