At about 306 meters in the middle of the Teutoburg Forest is the "Kaiser-Friedrich-Gedächtnishütte", a refuge, which is also called "Schwedenschanze" in the Volksmunde. Literally, a "Schwedenschanze" actually means only a rampart, just like here next to the refuge. From up here you have a wonderfully wide view over the Ravensberger Land.

The Kaiser-Friedrich-Gedächtnishütte is a refuge in the Teutoburg Forest (on the Bußberg in 306.3 m height) which is popularly often called Schwedenschanze. On the Schwedenschanze you can enjoy a wonderful view over the Ravensberger Land. In addition, you can strengthen yourself on Sundays in the refuge during the hike with coffee and cake or cool drinks.

I know the Schwedenschanze from my childhood. Mostly we were there in the winter to sledging. In the 80s, however, this was still a wide swath. There I could even watch how daredevil sledders ventured down the wall on a mattress. Meanwhile, this part of Sweden hill is much narrower and cramped by the surrounding trees.
This foothills of the Sweden hill is easy to reach. From the trail parking lot you go left to the restaurant along, then about 100m further on this part of the Sweden hill to meet.
