Marklohe is a municipality in Lower Saxony, Germany.


Geographical location

The municipality of Marklohe is located 5 km from Nienburg on the opposite side of the river Weser and midway between Verden (Aller) and Minden. Marklohe is the administrative seat of Marklohe ("Collective Community"), and the community of Balge, Marklohe and Wietzen.

Municipality structure

The municipality of Marklohe belongs to a district that directly adjoins the district of Lemke and Wohlenhausen, and is about 1,5 km from the district of Ortsteil Oyle.


In 1931 the town changed from its original name, Lohe, to Marklohe. The speculation was that the central gathering place, Marklohe, was called Marklo by the pre-Christian Saxons. That idea could not be certified.


Municipal government

The municipal government of Marklohe consists of 15 council men and council women.

(As of municipal elections on 11 September 2011)


In the current local election period (2011-2016), Günther Ballandat (SPD) serves as the honorary mayor of the municipality.

Culture and items of interest

There is an open-air theater in Marklohe. It is the home of the Amateur Players Association of Marklohe, and is operated by volunteers. Each summer they present Low German dialect play.

The association is also active in the winter months. Here, in the France Guest House in Marklohe the horn works of Nienburg (Weser) are played.


The church of St. Clement of Rome was built in the 12th century and has wall paintings and carvings in the choir.

Economy and infrastructure

The community is located just off the route 214. The route runs from Nienburg/Weser to Sulingen, and Bundesstraße 6 from Nienburg/Wesser to Bremen.
