Outdoor Activity
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.

  • We were once again went after many years. It is worth time and again. Can be put is simply impressive rock formation, in beautiful weather on the large meadows, or use one of the many hiking and cycling paths, or. Parking costs zZ €3, I've not checked the input on the rocks, but all the trappings can be visited without money. Who goes on the rocks has a magnificent view. The fo does good work, the signs are modern and heal, all very well maintained.

  • 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!!
