The catacombs underneath the Burg are a must see attraction, they also have a very fine Restaurant. There is parking near the Burg with hiking paths with scenic views over Bielefeld. you can also climb the stairs to the top of the tower to enjoy a 360 view of the Teutoburger forest and the City of Bielefeld.

Bielefeld,s nr.1 attraction.This is a must visit,& worth it.Especially when the sparrenburg put on their week-end of festivals.The castle is still being renovated & the archloge are still finding old walls that have been hidden for years.

The Sparrenburg is very much a symbol of the city of Bielefeld. It's a bit of a climb if you're on foot, but it's worth it once you get there! The grounds are free to visit and it costs only a couple of euros to go up the Sparrenburg tower from where you get lovely panoramic views of Bielefeld and the Teutoburger Forest are fantastic. The staff at the kiosk are kind and helpful. There is a cafe and plenty of room for a picnic. Look out for the statue of Frederick William of Prussia!

A nice castle to visit if you are spending time in Bielefeld with amazing views over the city. Interesting and free to walk around the grounds. You only have to pay if you want to go up to the top of the tower and that was only a couple of EURO's each.
