4.5/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • 12,000 years of people used for all possible purposes. If these rocks could talk :-) who is interested in history, times past here necessarily should look. Commerce is already impressive, but unfortunately also a lot... 2.50 rise for adults 3 euro, children Park 1,-euro. Cultural goods should be free. But in Germany you have to pay also tax if you want on the sea. Is also incomprehensible to me. Soon we pay money if we want to in the forest.
