Detmold is whatever you want it to be. Whether you’re looking for medieval architecture, historic personalities, legends, and myths, or simply a good time in the lap of nature, you have come to the right place. It is the former capital of the principality of Lippe. It has all this and much more to keep you engaged.
Detmold has already found its place on the tourist map of Germany and is famous for its larger-than-life statue of Arminius, who defeated the Romans in 9 A.D. There is no way anyone can miss it, as this 57m (188 ft) high colossus stands on a hill and is visible from all around.
The Market Place, with its Town Hall and other medieval architecture, should not be overlooked if you want to experience the beauty of the local culture.
