Had to go to Sparrenburg while in Bielefeld to have my photo taken sitting at the well in the grounds, to compare with the one I had taken 46 years before. For 2 € you can go up the spiral staircase to the top of...More

On a nice sunny afternoon, a walk up the hill to the Sparrenburg tower affords a wonderful view of the city. Very inexpensive 2 hr tour is well worth listening to and there is fo course the welcome tea, coffe or beer beofre leaving.

This is a convenient and historical Bielefeld attraction. And, if you climb the tower you obtain a panoramic view of all of Bielefeld. On a pleasant day, it is s great location to still around or simply relax in the gardens.

One of my favorite sightseeing spots in Bielefeld. I go there with literally everybody who is visiting me and hasn't been there yet. Amazing view. Nice atmosphere. No entry.

When being in Bielefeld anyways, might as well go visit the castle. It is a nice little site, with a tower, that gives a great view over the city (not recommended for people afraid of heights) and you can get a combination ticket with a...More

Enjoyed our afternoon at the castle. We went to the top and the view was worth it. Customer service is not very friendly or accommodating.

Worth a visit if you are in Bielefeld. We took a taxi from the town which was about 5-10 minutes drive, but walked back which took 20-30 minutes. We enjoyed going up the tower for even better views
