Externsteine, Horn-Bad Meinberg
(4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We found the park add up and we our wine on the Machu Pichu. We had wonderful because there was just a a mini concert at the pan-pipe player. You can take a nice walk, there are benches where you rest your lunches and you can also climb the stone. There is also beautiful water around it, in short, a nice trip.

  • Nice one to climb rocks, which for an additional fee, a portion can make you so up, where you then have a nice view. Also the forests surrounding it are wonderful to make it a delicious walk

  • Also this attraction was on my ToDo. I must say it was really very impressive. In particular, the externsteine offer an excellent starting point for hikes in the area, especially to the Hermann monument.

  • Historians say it's a site of pagan worship. However, the view was breathtaking and there were lots of tourists. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
  • Great park to walk. Stones Look like monuments! Really awesome
  • Exactly as seen on TV. Climbing on to the top (there are actually two different stairways) will cost you 3 EUR.
  • Cool place
  • We had the great luck that the park was snowed at the time of the visit (April 2013). Amazing landscapes!!
