  • Awesome walk along in the shadow of the colossal Hermann. Is excited at the stone table where once stood Kaiser Wilhelm and be read in the home of Builder's the story of the construction of the monument. Continue to the place invites to the stay one and especially with the better half nice place to the relax. It is good to know that you can connect the visit of Hamilton with the externsteine. This saves some euros.

  • 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 !
