Wanting to visit the historic town of Lemgo from Paderborn we found out we had to take the train to Detmold and the bus (half an hour) from there. So, we decided to visit Detmold on the way. It turned out to be a lucky...More

The centre of Munch is compact and lovely. Beautiful old buildings and nice shopping too! Don't forget to visit the Olympic stadion. The rooftop tour is amazing. If you want to go camping, try The Tent. Very nice and cheap place near the Botanical Garden.

Many historic buildings add charm to this small town. However, unfortunately for tourists (but fortunately for locals) there are not a lot of souvenir shops. Also, most of the restaurants are pretty bad. The weekly market on the Platz is very overpriced, and has not...More
