Cultural and leisure

Don’t miss the excitement of the Westphalian town!

As a unique town with an imperial abbey and a history dating back over 1200 years, Herford used to be a significant religious and cultural centre. With its many churches and exciting history, the former Hanseatic city is still worth a visit.

The Middle Ages Meets Modernity, as one of the slogans says, describes both the city and the modern museum for contemporary art: MARTa.

The architecturally interesting museum is known nationwide, not just because of the famous American architect Frank O. Gehry, who constructed the building, but also because of its top-class, ever-changing and sometimes quite extravagant exhibitions.

The museum is a 15-minute walk from the hotel.

The City Theatre, the Northwest German Philharmonic Orchestra and Capitol cinema are all within walking distance of the hotel.

The fascinating sauna complex at H2O offers a particular kind of relaxation with 3500 m² of leisure pool available. H2O is just 1.5 km from our hotel.

Partygoers can reach Herford’s GoParc nightclub venue nightclub venue in just 10 minutes by foot.

Herford also offers many interesting events, for example Jazz-Time in spring, the Hoeker Festival in summer and the Christmas lights in winter.

Information about current events can be found in the city ’s Calendar of Events.

The East-Westphalia-Lippe region offers diverse day trips. Wander through the Teutoburg Forest with the Hermannshöhen, the Hermann Monument and the Externsteinen.

Or discover the local countryside by bike. The Werre bike path goes past the hotel. Bikes can be hired from the hotel (Bike hire: 8 €).

Of course there are many more exciting and interesting day trip destinations in the town and the local region. Just ask, we are happy to help!
