Externsteine, Horn-Bad Meinberg
(4.5/5 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.

  • Despite that the rain pouring fell, the walk and the view was worth it. What impressive to those stones/rocks. And on top of that. Good parking, nice walk in the Woods and then the view! We do not have large walk through the forest created because of the rain, but that will no doubt be very very nice. Really worth it if you're in the area.

  • The externsteine are already exceptional. The small rise is worthwhile not only for a small look into the environment. Along with the Hermann monument, there is a combination ticket. To the externsteine, there are hiking trails to the Hermann monument, different.

  • 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!!
