Horn-Bad Meinberg

Natural. Healthy. Full of life

The Externsteine (EKS-tern-shtei-neh) rocks, part of a 40 m high rock formation, have for 80 million years been a portal to the Teutoburger Wald on the former imperial road between the Rhine and Oder rivers. Horn received its town privileges in 1248 and, in 1767, the Princely House of Lippe founded what are today the historic Bad Meinberg healing mineral and peat pulp baths.

Conventional medicine meets natural healing. Natural, healing peat pulp, mineral water and carbonic acid alongside Europe’s largest yoga facility and traditional Chinese medicine make the Staatsbad Meinberg public spa unique.

In the Teutoburger Wald | Eggegebirge Naturpark, the wandering star of the Hermann Heights (Hermannshöhen) illuminates above the Holzhausen- Externsteine health resort, where you can dive into a triad of yoga, peat and the Externsteine.
