The municipality of Marklohe is located 5 km from Nienburg on the opposite side of the river Weser and midway between Verden (Aller) and Minden. Marklohe is the administrative seat of Marklohe ("Collective Community"), and the community of Balge, Marklohe and Wietzen.
The municipality of Marklohe belongs to a district that directly adjoins the district of Lemke and Wohlenhausen, and is about 1,5 km from the district of Ortsteil Oyle.
In 1931 the town changed from its original name, Lohe, to Marklohe. The speculation was that the central gathering place, Marklohe, was called Marklo by the pre-Christian Saxons. That idea could not be certified.
The municipal government of Marklohe consists of 15 council men and council women.
(As of municipal elections on 11 September 2011)
In the current local election period (2011-2016), Günther Ballandat (SPD) serves as the honorary mayor of the municipality.
