In 2015, Langeneicke, together with its village Mittelhausen, located southwest of the "Hellweg" (B 1), has about 1160 inhabitants and is situated on the northern slope of the Haarstrang at up to 115 meters above sea level.
The first historical mention is found in an imperial document of King Heinrich II of April 10, 1011, in which he transfers, among others, the place "Langaneka", which gave its name to Langeneicke, from the former Grafschaft Hahold to Bishop Meinwerk of Paderborn. On the occasion of the 1000-year village anniversary, the village community organized a large two-day village festival. For this purpose, the village center, Kirchpark, was completely redesigned by the community. Today it is a lively meeting place for generations and a resting place for pilgrims on the Way of St. James as well as bicycle tourists.
Langeneicke has many green areas within the village with old oak trees and ensures a stable population through the development of gaps, the continued use of existing residential buildings and the moderate designation of new building areas.
Langeneicke combines tradition and modernity. Until the 1960s, Langeneicke was predominantly agricultural, but today it offers more than 200 jobs in the "Geseke West" industrial park and in its local businesses. The village also has a good, family-friendly infrastructure and two inns invite you to stop for a bite to eat.
In Langeneicke people stick together. The village council and the cultural association regularly invite people to "village meetings". Young and old discuss what has happened in the village and what should happen in the future.
These include the maintenance of the church park, memorial and cemetery, the organization of senior citizens' meetings and shopping car pools, the preservation of the oak tree tradition in the village, and the creation of the village's own youth meeting place, "JULA. Langeneicke already demonstrated its special energy in the construction of St. Barbara Church, which was built in 1902 in the record time of only half a year, entirely with its own funds.
The village motto "Firmly rooted in the future!" is lived out daily in Langeneicke.
