Paderborn: The JPOC city guide

My guide to Paderborn is beginning to look a little less empty and I will continue to add things here over the coming weeks.

Paderborn is a small city in the North West of Germany. From the point of view of a Brit living in the town, the main work opportunities are Siemens Nixdorf and Orga both of which use contractors. The other feature to note is that there is a huge British Army base in the town.

Like so many cities Paderborn owes its existence to water. In this case, a series of springs rise in the city centre and join together to form the river Pader.
