Quernheim is a municipality in the district of Diepholz, in Lower Saxony, Germany. It has a population of just over 400 inhabitants.

It is known for being the smallest municipality in Germany with a fully functioning public cinema; the "Lichtburg" is regarded as a local institution with its 1950s-style interior design (however it uses modern technology to screen films on current release).[2]
