Bike Touring Highlight
Warburg is located in the eastern part of North Rhine-Westphalia in the south of the district Höxter and thus belongs to the southeastern region of the region Ostwestfalen-Lippe. It is located in the eastern border region of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, about 27 kilometers southwest of the border triangle Hesse-Lower Saxony-North Rhine-Westphalia. In the south, the city reaches as far as the state of Hesse. In terms of nature, Warburg lies in the south of the Warburger Börde, a fertile lowland with loess soil and low tree populations. The Börde is mainly used for agriculture. In the southwest, the urban area touches the foothills of the Sauerland, in the northwest of the Eggegebirge. In the north and northeast, the actual Warburger Börde joins, south of the West Hessian mountain country. The nearest major centers are Paderborn (northwest: 27 kilometers of country road, 40 kilometers of motorway), Kassel (southeast: 35 kilometers of highway / motorway) and Göttingen (east: 76 kilometers of highway, 98 kilometers of motorway).

The most important waters in the city are the Diemel, which, coming from Hesse, flows through the southern part of the urban area from west to east, and the south of the city in the Diemel opening Twiste, which previously flows through the districts Welda and Wormeln in the south of the city center. The Hörler Bach at Welda flows into the Twiste. The Diemel takes on the Calenberger Bach. Another tributary of the Diemel in the area of the city is the Eggel, which flows through Warburg in the east and drained large parts of the Warburger Börde, coming from Daseburg, south. On the rivers, some mills used the water power that today operates a power plant. The brook stream is the fresh water supply for fish farming in the ponds of the Warburg villages
