Admire nature's artwork at Externsteine, a sandstone formation of tall rock columns in the wooded hills of Lippe. These rocks were once used for religious activity; look for the open chamber in the tallest rock, which contains an altar stone. You can climb some of the formations, but others are blocked off to protect the vegetation. Stop at the visitor's center for detailed information on the attraction's history.

Overall impressive!
Mooie verharde wandeling tussen het bezoekerscentrum en de rotsen die je met een gratis te ontlenen rolstoel kunt afleggen. Enkel het beklimmen middels trappen van de rotsen is betalend maar het zicht... more »Nice paved walk between the visitor center and the rocks that you can travel with a free to borrow wheelchair. Only climbing through stairs of the rocks is paying but the sight of the rocks is worth the displacement in itself. Be sure to take the time in the Info Center to watch the movies, they are very educational and help to understand everything
Stunning rock formation. A short walk from the parking lot. Lovely picnic area with lake in front of the rocks and several hiking paths. Tip: The Public restrooms are at the beginning of the parking lot, not at the end where people park to walk to the rocks. We had to go back down and back up. )-:
Beautiful hidden pearl. Quite extraordinary, climbing up the cliffs is €4 per person. The surrounding area is also worth a long walk on a nice day, the forest is very quiet and it seems like the western part is designated for lumberjack, as trees are cut down.
