An incredible statue stands in the Teutoburg Forest near Detmold, Germany. Impressive views of the surrounding forest and towns can be had from the viewing deck of the statue.

An amazing statue, its architect's life's work, which towers 175' above the hilltop in the Teutoberger Wald. It reflects the growth of a new German nationalism in the 19thC following Napoleon's invasions of the German states, and the occupation which Ernst von Bandel had witnessed...More

Hermannsdenkmal is a nice place to make a flashback into the late 19th century. A gigantic monument, celebrating the german strenght. You may climb to the top of the pedestal supporting the statue (easy stairs) and take a few interesting pictures from there. The monument...More

This is a great piece of Germany's history! We enjoyed hearing about it and walking the grounds! They do have an obstacle course that looked fun but we choose not to do it.

See Hermann every day when I open the curtains. Hermann is a must see when in Lippeland, an impressive sight towing over the surrounding woodlands...amazing views on clear days from the view point just beneath the statue.

Very good place to visit and spend some time with the views. There is also a good point to remember the battles between romans and germans

While based at Detmold in the early 70's we often used Herman to zero in and improve our arial photography so it was nice to revisit this magnificent statue. It is well worth climbing the many stairs up to the crown of the tower as...More
