Lengel is a village center in the municipality of Montferland (in the former municipality of Bergh) located in the Gelderse region De Liemers at the foot of Montferland and Bergherbos. Lengel has been established today at the city of Heerenberg.
The village consists of two parts:
The village center, whose central Antonius street determines the image.
The outer area to the north and east of the village center.
The village, predominantly of Catholic signature, does not have its own church, but falls under the 's-Heerenberg - Lengelse R.K. Emmaus parochie, the church of 's-Heerenberg, about one kilometer from Lengelse village center.
Lengel counts about 250 inhabitants. The village has a rich community life, including its own football association (VVL), its own carnival association and its own shooting center. Furthermore, the village has hardly any facilities. Until the early 80's, a kindergarten was located on the Antoniusstraat, but at the time it was abandoned by students and merged with the Pastor Galamas school in 's-Heerenberg.
