The Teutoburg Forest

The many sights of the Teutoburg Forest are evidence of its long history. The Hermann Monument at Detmold for instance commemorates the battle of Teutoburg Forest and its "hero", the Cheruscan ruler Arminius. There are also quite a number of lovely parks and monasteries along the route. But also the many historical city centers with buildings dating back to the Weser Renaissance and historical and cultural sights in the region. Westphalia's Culinarium in Nieheim lets bon vivants follow the footsteps of Westphalian taste: there are four museums dedicated to the five basic Westphalian staples: bread, cheese, ham, beer and schnapps.

At the end of the North Rhine-Westphalia leg, D3 reaches the Weser Hills and the River Weser. Yet another cultural highlight awaits you right next to Höxter with Corvey Castle and Monastery. After all, Corvey was once one of the most influential monasteries in Europe and today is currently being recommended to be added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

D-Route 3 leaves Münsterland continues into the Teutoburger Forest. Relaxation, recreation and a lively history awaits you here, e.g. in Germany's largest open-air museum, at the Hermann Monument in Detmold or at the Monastery Marienmünster.

The final stage through Westphalia takes you across the Weser on your way to the historic Hanseatic city of Höxter. Medieval historic city centers and buildings dating back to the Weser Renaissance still shape the appearance of the region.
