Culture and leisure

Do not miss the charm of the Westphalian city!

As a unique imperial collegiate town with a history of over 1200 years, Herford used to be an important religious and cultural center. With its many churches worth seeing and the exciting history of the city, the Hanseatic city is still worth experiencing today.

Middle Ages meets modernity, that’s one of the slogans. Of course, this also means the modern museum of contemporary art: MARTa

The architecturally interesting museum is now known throughout Germany not only because of its builder, the American star architect Frank O. Gehry but also because of its changing, top-class and sometimes extravagant exhibitions. The museum is just under a 15-minute walk from the hotel.

On foot you can also reach the Municipal Theater the Northwest German Philharmonic Orchestra or the Capitol cinema center.

For a special kind of relaxation, there is a fascinating sauna area in the H2O, the 3500sqm large fun and leisure pool, which is only 1,5 km away from our house.

Nightlife enthusiasts can reach Herford’s large-scale discotheque GoParc in about 10 minutes on foot.

Of course, Herford always comes up with interesting events, such as the Jazz-Time in spring, the Hoeker-Fest in summer or the Christmas Light in winter.

Information about current events can be found in the Calendar of events of the city of Herford.

The entire region East Westphalia-Lippe offers a wide range of excursion possibilities. Hike nevertheless e.g. once the Teutoburg Forest with the Hermann Heights and pay a visit to the Hermann Monument or the Externsteine pay a visit. Or explore the surrounding area by bike. The Werre Cycle Route leads close to our house. Bicycles can be rented on request at our hotel (bike rental: 10,00 Euro).
