  • In the distance you can that immensely important and large picture of Herman already admire! If it is up mountain then once because you can not deal that cafeterias have created something hands! The story is from the Roman era and that's already long ago but still impressive for us all! The cold brought us in car very soon! We didn't make the last few meters!

  • Wonderful scenery while getting here, especially if you are on a bike. The statue and place itself has a historic significance to Germany. There is something to do for everyone, including a well constructed and challenging climbing park, do try your hand at it if you got time.
  • All I can say is "Wow". Spent the day exploring the site and was happy to have gone up the statue of Arminus.
  • wonderful place.
  • Nice view!
  • Super View !
