The highest hill in Lübbecke's territory is the Heidbrink (320 m) on the Wiehen ridge. However the slightly lower Wurzelbrink to the north is probably better known as it is crowned by a small stone observation tower, the Wartburg, that is the turning point of the annual 14 kilometre race of the same name that starts and ends in Lübbecke.

Blasheimer MarktAnnual fair happening on the weekend of the first Friday in September, from Thursday to Sunday. Attracts crowds of more than 300.000 visitors, making it one of the largest fairs in the area. Its trademark feature is a 48m tall Ferris wheel, but it also offers a large amount of other attractions. From the city center of Lübbecke one can reach it most conveniently via bus starting at the central bus station ('ZOB'). Parking spots close to the fair can be scarce and/or expensive, parking in the nearby residential area without a proof of residence may result in a fine or worse. Note that pickpocketing may be an occurrence as it can get very crowded at some parts of the fair.
