Gütersloh lies approximately halfway between Hannover and Dortmund , so is ideally situated for exploring Germany .

The setting of the town is pleasantly rural with a few major industries such as Bertelsman (printers) and Miele (washing machines). The young town (established 1825) has an old town centre. The alte Kirchplatz (old church square) surrounding the Apostelkirche (Apostel church) is one of the finest of its type in Westphalia.
