Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / North Rhine-Westphalia / Horn-Bad Meinberg / Miscellaneous / Externsteine
Admire nature's artwork at Externsteine, a sandstone formation of tall rock columns in the wooded hills of Lippe. These rocks were once used for religious activity; look for the open chamber in the tallest rock, which contains an altar stone. You can climb some of the formations, but others are blocked off to protect the vegetation. Stop at the visitor's center for detailed information on the attraction's history. Put Externsteine on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Horn-Bad Meinberg travel itinerary maker.
