Via bicycle, you can find us on the core cycle routes R1, R3, R5, R7, R49, R51 and R53 as well as the Roman route. As we are located in the heart of the walking region, you can also get to the Hermannsdenkmal and thus to us via the train cycle route Weser-Lippe and other regional themed routes.
We are located in the walking heart of Europe, which means there are many trails that lead directly to us. The two best-known ones are the long-distance walking trail E1 and the Hermannsweg trail. But there are also numerous other themed routes and regional walking paths that will lead you to us. Simply follow the signs to the Hermannsdenkmal.
