Tips

  • Gerrit 🚲🌲🌳🥾🚶‍♂️🎒🏞

    Maybe THE natural monument of Ibbenbüren. Great rock formation that (according to legend) represents a petrified woman who wanted to save her child from a flood on her shoulders. The rocks are easy to climb for experienced climbers with sensible shoes, inexperienced climbers should better stay down.

    The approximately 4 km long and about 150 meters high rock formations made of sandstone along the southwest slope of the Teutoburg Forest form the Dörenther cliffs. From up here you have a fabulously wide view of the Münsterland. Particularly well-known are the strikingly shaped single rocks of the "Three Emperor's Chair" and the "Squatting Woman", which is said to have a tragic legend.

    Always nice area, especially away from the main path.

    Great destination for families with children. From the campsite follow the signs "Crouching Woman", then you are very fast on the cliffs. There, bigger children can climb great.

    Beautiful area for a more demanding hiking and of course for climbing on the rocks.

    The legend of the crouching woman:
    A mother once lived with her children near the cliffs.
    At that time the sea reached up to the mountain range.
    When the tide was particularly high, the woman fled to the cliffs,
    where she sat in the water with the children on her shoulders.
    When the water retreated, the children were saved and the woman turned to stone.

    Who wanders the Hermannsweg comes necessarily on the squatting woman and the Dörenther cliffs over. For all others: Drive to the B219, there is south of a small chapel a trail parking lot, from there on the Hermannsweg past a campsite, from there you can decide whether you the "easy" way (supposedly wheelchair suitable, I have not checked) or take the "heavy road" up to the squatting woman and the cliffs.

    The Dörenther cliffs are a beautiful rock formation in the middle of the Teutoburg Forest and are located directly on the Hermannsweg. They are definitely worth a visit, even with the whole family, but the children should not be too small

    Very nice view, but it should be full when the inn is up again.

    The Dörenther cliffs boast impressive rock formations and mysterious myths. Bizarre sandstone cliffs line the narrow ridge paths in all sizes and shapes, which rise up to 40 meters in height.

    It was okay to increase the experience factor like to walk next to the hiking trails.

    The cliffs are great to climb, but be careful after the rain and early morning. Very smooth and slippery.
