The Externsteine are a unique cultural monument that has always fascinated people. Numerous traces bear witness to the eventful history, e.g. the grotto location, the rock tomb and the relief of the cross. The viewing platform offers an impressive view over the nature reserve of the same name, the oldest in Lippe.

A free exhibition on approx. 200 sqm invites you to a lively journey through the history of the monument in the information centre. Free lending of GPS devices and GPS nature trails as well as adventure hikes bring interested people closer to nature and culture.

Open guided tours with a visit to the grotto complex, special offers on the subject of external stones as well as programmes for school classes round off the offer.

The Externsteine and the nature reserve can be visited all year round.
