Wanting to visit the historic town of Lemgo from Paderborn we found out we had to take the train to Detmold and the bus (half an hour) from there. So, we decided to visit Detmold on the way. It turned out to be a lucky...More

The centre of Munch is compact and lovely. Beautiful old buildings and nice shopping too! Don't forget to visit the Olympic stadion. The rooftop tour is amazing. If you want to go camping, try The Tent. Very nice and cheap place near the Botanical Garden.

Detmold is a little town full of history (it was a "Residenz" Stadt, where the princes from Lippe used to live). You can't drive through the Altstadt, what really turns the Altstadt into a very pleasant place to walk. Must see the Schloss, the Marktplatz...More

This town has a great mix of old medieval streets, a castle with moat, large pedestrian areas with cafes/bars offering outside seating, and also modern shopping. Maybe because it isn't really big, it has a relaxed feel without that big city hustle and bustle. There...More

I lived in Detmold for a bit and this was a favourite of mine to walk through and grab a coffee. The food is great in this area and there is a mix of new and old. Not big though so shouldn't take much time...More

Many historic buildings add charm to this small town. However, unfortunately for tourists (but fortunately for locals) there are not a lot of souvenir shops. Also, most of the restaurants are pretty bad. The weekly market on the Platz is very overpriced, and has not...More
