Ein Tag im Land des Hermann
The General Terms and Conditions of Lippe Tourismus & Marketing GmbH apply
The land of Hermann in the Teutoburg Forest is full of myths and legends. We invite you to visit the impressive picturesque nature with mystical and legendary places. Follow the traces of Romans and Teutons or Lippe noblemen.
10.00 a.m.: Hermann’s MonumentThe Hermann’s Monument on the 356m high Grotenburg was built in memory of the “Battle of the Teutoburg Forest”, with which the leader of the Teutons, Hermann the Cheruscan, prevented a further advance of the Romans for all times. Since its inauguration 125 years ago, the Hermann Monument has become one of the most important excursion destinations in northern Germany.
11.30 a.m.: ExternsteineOnly a few minutes’ drive from the Hermann Monument, the Externsteine, a group of 13 sandstone rocks, stand in the middle of an otherwise rockless environment. During a short walk along the bizarre and legendary rocks you will learn about the geological formation and the exciting history influenced by man.
13.00 hrs: SchiederSeeThe lake was created at the end of the 1970s and was structurally completed in the early 1980s as a local recreation area. Explore the lake from the water. Get to know the different sides of the beautiful reservoir on a one-hour round trip: Lively hustle and bustle in the leisure centre on the south bank, forests that reach down to the water, a marsh area with a great variety of water birds. You will enjoy a typical regional lunch in the comfortably furnished lounge.
15.00 hrs: Schieder CastleAt the end of your stay, the Schieder Castle Park invites you to take a relaxing stroll and linger. The castle park is one of the most beautiful landscape gardens of our region. More than 300 years ago the Lippe rulers chose Schieder as their summer residence. The baroque castle and the extensive park still bear witness to aristocratic living culture today. You can learn more about this on our guided tour.
