I'm not 100% on the cultural significance of this statue but it's situated in a quiet forest area and gives a stunning view of the city below.

You should go there only when the weather is nice. If it is a overcast or rainy day, stay away. The statue itself is some way interesting but not great and it is historically inaccurate. They charge you 3 Euros for parking and 3.50 Euros...More

Good displays and lovely views near the top. Very photogenic. Nearby is a climbing park. Inexpensive

Lovely spot, great views, magical area with the forest & surrounds. The site also has a high rope course and Externstine is close by too. Visited after the Varusschlacht Museum and great piece of history of German people and monument to Arminius.

Had a great visit of Hermannsdenkmal and nearby Externsteine. Magic German woods! The kids enjoyed canopying too in the park right next to the Hermann memorial.

A nice walk through attractive landscape to see the statue, add it to a day with the Adlerwarte at Berlebeck and Externstein and then you have a good impression of this area

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.
