It's a great walk up to Sparrenburg castle. Definitely one of the sights to see in Bielefeld. Make sure to go up the main tower, the view is the best around.

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.
