About Teutoburger Wald Tourismus

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.

      If, in addition to a varied hike and an excursion into nature, you also fancy some sights, then this hike is the right one for you. For almost 15 kilometers, this round tour takes you to historical buildings, special plants and great views. Our tip: the Weidenpalais in Rheder.You put your backpack on your shoulders at the church in Rheder and then leave civilization behind you for the time being. It goes straight into the region of the Teutoburg Forest. You take a look at Rheder Castle through the majestic castle park. Shortly after the following pipe sign, turn left and hike the next few kilometers through untouched nature.In the small town of Gehrden you can take the path through the water nature trail and climb the Rosenberg behind the town via the Kreuzweg and take a look at the Katharinenkapelle. You will make another stop later in the village of Siddessen and take a look at the church.You will complete the last section of the tour accompanied by the Nethe and then the Mühlengraben, there you can look at an impressive fish ladder before you visit the special Weidenpalais in Rheder as a special highlight almost at the end of the tour. The Palais is a popular wedding venue and is just a beautiful piece of nature.

      This almost ten kilometer hike takes you along the Weser to and around the lakes of the Altteich Costedt nature reserve. But not only the river and the lakes await you on your way: On the edge of the Mittlerer See - that's what it is really called - has been the manor Rothenhoff for centuries. That is why the hiking trail that you are following for the most part is called “Around the Manor”.The property was first mentioned in 1230 and has since passed into the hands of different, sometimes famous, sometimes less famous owners. You should definitely pay a visit to the historic estate on your way.Otherwise, you can expect the rush of the Weser, the fresh air of the nature reserve and maybe a dip in the cool water for a day on this tour. Because at the Großer Weserbogen there is a campsite with an attached bathing lake, which day tourists are also allowed to use.The start and finish point of the hike is the parking lot on the street “Zum Südlichen See”. For the round trip you should have swimming gear with you and maybe binoculars, because there are plenty of animals to watch in the water-rich nature reserve. Incidentally, you can strengthen yourself for the kilometers covered with a cold drink or a high-energy meal in several places, for example at the campsite or you can use the Weser ferry Amanda and cross over to the Weserhütte or the old ferry house.

      A day in the Eggetal and the Wiehengebirge is like a day of wellness: in absolute tranquility you hike along natural paths through beech and coniferous forests. The Eggetaler Panoramaweg accompanies you - always along the yellow hiking sign "E" - for almost 16 kilometers. In between you will pass witnesses of historical times and can climb the weighing tower.The starting point for this extensive forest hike is one of the most curious train stations in East Westphalia: the Neue Mühle. The tiny train station is a "stop on demand" and can only be found under its full name "Mesch Neue Mühle" on Deutsche Bahn. Therefore, the trains only stop there for show of hands. A short distance from there along the Bünder Straße before you turn off in the direction of Eininghausen on the Panoramaweg.On the right, you always leave Börninghausen and Einighausen next to you while you hike along the slope of the Wiehengebirge. If you feel like taking a break, you can hike from Börninghausen along Eggetaler Straße to Büscherheide to the Hotel-Restaurant Linendhof.During the tour you can actually enjoy the view of the valley almost the whole time. Halfway through you will reach the Wiehenturm - after a short climb, an almost unique view of the wooded low mountain range around you is waiting for you.You continue on the other side of the valley back to your starting point. You always have the Limberg in view on the left. Shortly before the end you can leave the signposted hiking trail and take a detour to another highlight: Limburg Castle. After a short visit to the ruins, you can review the tour again in the forester's house Limburg and try a delicious East Westphalian specialty before returning to the starting point. If you haven't been hungry at the forester's lodge, you can take a break in the Saune Neptun restaurant before driving home.

      The small but fine balance hiking trail, which leads from Horn-Bad Meinberg into the countryside, has one goal above all: to hike carefully. Because along the way you will always find boards with guided yoga exercises and health tips - for example against back pain.The starting point of this beautiful hike is the historic spa park in Horn-Bad Meinberg - and the park alone is worth the journey. Next to the Kurparksee you will find nature paired with historical buildings and small statues. For your hike, however, you first leave the park and hike out of the city.With every step it becomes calmer around you and the chirping of the birds accompanies you on the coming route. Halfway through, you can take a break at the Berghof Storck. From there you turn back towards Horn-Bad Meinberg.You cross several streams and complete the last yoga exercises before entering the city again. There you can end the day with a visit to the thermal mineral bath.

      Donoper pond, Hasselbachstausee, Krebsteich and Blauer See: There are four bodies of water on your way today on the quality hiking trail Pivitker Wasserweg. In addition to the pure nature at the four lakes, you can make a detour to the nearby Hiddeser Bent high moor - the route is already included in the total length of the hike. The path is of course perfectly signposted - just follow the three white waves in the blue circle on site.The starting point for your relaxed, almost six-kilometer tour in the nature of the Teutoburg Forest is the Donoper Teich car park. Since the waterway is a circular route, the destination is there again.After only a few meters you will first reach the Donoper pond and walk along the Hasselbach to the Krebsteich. You continue to follow the path parallel to the Hiddeser Bent Climate Experience Route. Now you can follow its course to the high moor. If you want to shorten the route, you can also take the first junction to the left. In the moor you can walk a bit into the moor via a wooden walkway and then return to the path.As far as the Hasselbach reservoir, the path now runs under trees, always accompanied by the Hasselbach up to the Hasselbach reservoir. Enjoy the silence in the middle of nature and make the last two kilometers back to the parking lot whenever you want. Shortly beforehand, the Hotel and Restaurant Forstfrieden is waiting for you - you have now earned a refreshment.

      If you don't yet know Hövelhof, the best way to get to know the community is on the historic hiking trail. The short hike over six kilometers is particularly suitable for families with children. In addition, you have many options to extend your stay there, because Hövelhof is located in the Westphalian Bay in the region of the Teutoburg Forest and thus in a unique natural area that offers many more hiking opportunities with the nearby Senne nature reserve.From the train station, the hiking trail first leads to a special natural spectacle. Shortly after Park Verrieres, the Krollbach runs through Hövelhof and splits into a two-river system at a rare fork. Then the path continues on the outskirts to the Friedenseiche, a piece parallel to Bielefelder Straße, over the community cemetery in the direction of the old hunting lodge.There is not only space to relax in the sun and see what it looked like in Hövelhof many years ago. Before you get back to the train station, you should pay a visit to the new center and the church of St. Johannes Nepomuk. Both places stand for the history and also the development of the community.

      The Sachsenring takes you over small climbs, through forests and meadows and along historical places around the 730-year-old town of Bad Driburg, whose spa facilities have been privately owned by the Counts of Oeynhausen-Sierstorpff for 240 years. On this hike you take on the natural hiking trail completely and spend a day in the footsteps of important personalities of the famous moor and mineral spa.The start and end point of the 19 kilometer tour is the outdoor swimming pool in Bad Driburg. From there, the Sachsenring first leads you past the wildlife enclosure to the mausoleum of the von Oeynhausen-Sierstorpff family. On the way you always move in the middle of the Teutoburg Forest / Eggegebirge nature park.Along the Hoppenberg you continue to the northern edge of the spa and you can always enjoy beautiful views of Bad Driburg. In the west you pass the Bollerwienquelle, which feeds an idyllic Kneipp basin in the middle of the forest and offers itself as a break. In the further course of the route, a short detour takes you to the 18-meter-high Kaiser-Karls-Turm with a fantastic view. In addition, there is a small discovery tour of the Iburg castle ruins nearby. In the south you then cross several small streams and get back to your starting point through the Buddenberg Arboretum.Since you always move close to the city during the day, there are also several options for refreshments and breaks. Afterwards there are still a few options in Bad Driburg itself to supplement your hike, for example with a visit to the outdoor pool.

      This hike takes you on truly romantic and fairytale paths, because the Brothers Grimm and other representatives of romanticism once walked here in the Brakeler Bergland. To find their traces, you leave Brakel to the north, where you immediately climb the first hill. Then it becomes flatter again and you hike down to Bökendorf.You cross the village and on the other side write another loop on the slopes of the Wüllenberg. From there you can enjoy the wonderful view over the valley, which is the scene of the novel "Die Judenbuche". The story is based on a true story and comes from the pen of the poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff. On the northern edge of Bökendorf you will pass Bökerhof Castle, where Droste-Hülshoff visited several times in the 19th century. A special highlight of the hike is the historic arcade made of hornbeam, which grow together over a path.Your next hiking stop is the village of Bellersen. A detour to the town center with its historic half-timbered houses is worthwhile. There is a lot on offer here: Baked goods are regularly baked in an old bakery and there is, among other things, a creative courtyard for artists and a show distillery.The way back south leads you in the valley through the floodplains on the banks of the Brucht. Shortly before Brakel you overcome one last climb through the forest. Once at the top, Hinnenburg Castle is on your right, although it is privately owned, it is also impressive from a distance. On the descent you will meet again on the well-known path that leads down to Brakel.Would you like to shorten the route a little? There is a bus connection between Brakel Bökendorf and Bellersen. So you can easily hike only part of the route.

      The Paderborner Höhenweg leads east of the city on many wonderfully natural paths through deep beech forests. You can expect picturesque valleys, the highest point in Paderborn and of course fantastic views.The long round starts in Neuenbeken and can be divided into a south and a north route as you wish. To do this, you connect Neuenbeken and the Dune Valley via a path that runs south directly along the railway tracks to either only walk the northern section or only the southern section. The hiking car park in the Dune Valley offers an alternative entry point to the route.From Neuenbeken you hike uphill right at the beginning to get into the forest on the northern slope of the Beketal. You will explore this extensively in several large curves that will eventually bring you down into the valley. On the other side of the river you cross a long, unlit railway tunnel. The following section through the forest leads you into the Dune valley. Here the trees will soon open and you will see one of the most beautiful views of the Höhenweg: the small viaduct, which spans the valley imposingly.Then you disappear again between the trees and climb up to the highest point on Paderborn soil. This is a bit hidden, but is marked with a cross. On the last section of the high trail, it slowly goes downhill again to Neuenbeken. On the way you will be amazed by an unusual beech tree that has two legs.

      The Osterberg is Lügde's local mountain. It is a special destination because an old Easter tradition is still cultivated here. On the first Sunday after the first spring moon, the Lügder wooden wheels roll down the slope with burning straw to welcome spring. But the Osterberg is also worth a hike on all other days of the year, because from here you have a wonderful view.The route begins in the old town of Lügder at the impressive Kilian's Church, which dates back to the 12th century. You wander over the Emmer and soon leave the last houses behind you. Now you follow the course of the Eschenbach on a path through the idyllic Meintetal. You cross the stream twice to make a detour to the Siebenquellen before you start the ascent to the Osterberg.Arrived at the highest point, you pass the Gasthaus Kempenhof, where you can stop. Then you slowly make your way back up on the slope. You will be accompanied by the great views of the valley. Soon you will pass the Easter Cross, which marks the place where the Easter Cycle Run takes place. A refuge and a lounger are available here for a break with a wonderful view over Lügde. Then you hike back down into the city, where you get back to Kilian's Church on the banks of the Emmer.If you still feel like relaxing, you should definitely plan a detour to the Emmerauenpark. There is a small beach, a beach volleyball court, a café and an adventure playground.
