About Teutoburger Wald Urlaubsregion

Der Teutoburger Wald – Wanderer können hier tief abtauchen in die Geschichte, sogar sehr tief in die Erdgeschichte. Auf 30 Qualitätswege Wanderbares Deutschland, auf dem Top Trail of Germany Hermannshöhen wandert man zu historischen Stätten, mitten durch die Natur und hinein in die Vergangenheit unseres Planeten.

Zeugnisse aus 300 Millionen Jahren Erdgeschichte finden sich im UNESCO Global Geopark TERRA.vita. Besonders eindurcksvoll sind die Dörenther Klippen, die über vier Kilometer den Top Trail Hermannshöhen säumen. Vor Urzeiten bildeten sie Küste eines Ozeans, dessen Salz bis heute in der Tiefe erhalten ist. In Solequellen kommt es vielerorts zutage. Solequellen, Moore und Mineralwässer, heilkräftig reine Luft und Thermalquellen bilden heute die natürlichen Heilmittel der Heilbäder des Teutoburger Waldes. Die großen drei sind Bad Driburg, Bad Oeynhausen und Bad Salzuflen.

Eines der bekanntesten Naturdenkmals des Naturparks Teutoburger Wald/Eggegebirge steht ebenfalls an den Hermannshöhen: die Externsteine Die sagen- und mythenumrankten Felsnadeln sind sowohl christliche Andachtsstätte als auch heidnisches Heiligtum.

Ganz in der Nähe reckt Hermann sein Schwert bei Detmold mehr als 50 Meter hoch in den Himmel. Das riesenhafte Standbild erinnert an die Varusschlacht im Jahre 9 nach Christus und ist der Namenspate für die „Hermannshöhen“. Der Höhenweg über die Kämme und durch die Buchenwälder von Teutoburger Wald und Eggegebirge besteht aus den beiden Qualitätswegen Hermannsweg und Eggeweg.

Mehr als 20 weitere Qualitätswege führen durch den Teutoburger Wald. Zahlreiche Baudenkmäler säumen die Wege: das Große Eisenbahnviadukt Altenbeken, die Sparrenburg in Bielefeld, Burg Ravensberg hoch über der Lebkuchenstadt Borgholzhausen, Schloss Neuhaus in Paderborn und die Ruine der frühmittelalterlichen Iburg bei Bad Driburg sowie dutzende historische Mühlen. Nicht zu vergessen die Klöster – vor allem das UNESCO Welterbe Corvey und Kloster Dalheim in Lichtenau mit seinen einzigartigen Ausstellungen.

      On a good 50 kilometers of cycle route you will get to know the natural, the picturesque and the artistic side of the city of Bielefeld. There are even some smaller mountain classifications as you drive up the slopes of the "Teuto" in the south-west of the city. That's what the locals affectionately

      On the outskirts of Bad Oeynhausen, the Werre and Weser flow together and form a lake landscape. You accompany the Weser for a few kilometers and then turn east below Porta Westfalica. On the way you pass several lovingly prepared windmills, touch the species-rich nature reserve Hehler Feld and finally

      The small Kolthoff mill is located on the southern edge of the Dümmer nature park. Originally built for just one farm, the small mill is really big today: the decorative ensemble offers granaries for exhibitions, a museum hall, a bakery, a cottage garden and even more attractions for visitors. The further

      You leave Schmalge in the direction of Tonneheide, where you will notice the pretty white windmill from 1878 right on the outskirts. Here you can get married! The two-story gallery Dutchman is often used as a registry office. We continue to Wehe to a lovingly restored post mill from the mid-17th century

      At the small hamlet of Grossenheerse you leave the course of the Weser and now roll in a few curves through the charming landscape, mainly in a southwesterly direction. You will pass several historic mills again. The Wegholmer Mühle near Petershagen-Friedwalde is particularly beautiful – and even functional

      After starting in Minden you cycle through flat, watery terrain to the small town of Lahde near Petershagen. Here the route takes you directly past a so-called two-story gallery Dutchman from 1876. Together with the neighboring monastery church and the preserved Meierhöfe, this is an enchanting ensemble

      From Lügde it goes up to the painter and traditional costume town of Schwalenberg. You will be rewarded with a sensational view from the castle of the same name. The tour now curves back to Schieder and then turns west towards Horn. Passing the legendary Externsteinen - here, too, there are a few meters

      We continue through flat areas to the east. Through beautiful meadow landscapes you reach the moated castle Wendlingshausen, built on oak piles in the early 17th century, also a building in the style of the Weser Renaissance.

      Crystal-clear streams, alluvial forests, deep green valleys and lush meadows. In between, medieval town centers and rural villages. You can find all of this on the 65-kilometre-long Netherradweg. From the source near Bad Driburg to where it flows into the Weser near Höxter, you cycle on easy-to-ride
