    500 years of German country side living on display. With 2 windmills grinding flour on weekends where you can see the process while the mills are running. A nice day in a huge area. Restaurants/cafes with reasonnable prices for relaxation and a bite to eat.
    Or go to the old bakery and by some cookies or go to the grocery store and by oldstyle candy.
    Definitely worth a visit.

    An iconic statue to commemorate how Germanic tribes completely wiped away three Roman legions (which was no mean feat at that time). Historically important as this statue helped built a national identity at a time when Germany was scattered into many different smaller states.
    The statue is huge and imposing. But other than that there is not that much to do. Marvel at the statue, tick it of your list, pay the 4 euro parking cost and continue your journey.

    The market place is surrounded by fantastic traditional architecture, and also, like most of the cities and towns we visited in Germany it so clean; no litter. The locals are also so very friendly.

    Parking is free and just take a walk over 230 m. high to the entrance, with a fee of 6.50 euro for adults and 3.50 euro for kids.
    You can also find a Cafe and souvenir shop there and a kids playground.The scenery is so beautiful to roam around.
    Never miss this show when you´re in Detmold.
    Amazing experience and very informative. I love to watch it again and let "der Adler" do a bit relax or a quiet stop in my head.

    So cool to bring your family here especially kids .. experience interaction with the birds especially the parrots . It’s just a small park but you’ll have fun interacting with beautiful birds . There’s the typical bird show which is hilarious for kids . Food cart to satisfy hunger and quench your thirst . It’s just near Externsteine so don’t miss this other magnificent park . I love the garden with colorful flowers too . It’s best to go there by car . Or get to know schedule of bus so you don’t miss it .

    We looked forward to attending this Rope park. But after we walked all the way up to where it starts we were rudely told they do not have lockers. However they offered to hold onto out wallets, cellphones and jewelry. All without taking any risk for it.
