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.

  • The Externsteine lies in the middle of the Teutoburger Wald, a vaste walking area. You can have short walks on paved footpaths or walk the Herman's weg a more than 12 kilometer stroll down and uphill....  more »
  • Place is super easy en externsteine, scenic, culturally, and spiritually it is unique. Great for children to climb the stones and to learn something about the (first) Christian history of this place.

  • 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!!
