DescriptionThough the Teutoburger Forest, with its max elevation of 450m, doesn't rank among the tallest mountains in Germany, there are a few small sandstone crags situated upon the ridge between Rheine and Detmold which attract many climbers.
Some particularly interesting crags are:
Dörenther Klippen (near Bocketal) - at nearly 4km long with many small sectors, you're sure to find something for you. The sector Königsstein offers harder routes in a nice roof. The sector Dreikaiserstuhl offers 50 routes with a wide range of difficulty.
Halleluja Steinbruch (near Bielefeld) - more interesting for boulderers.
Note: Chalk is forbidden nearly everywhere in the Teutoburger Wald. Please leave your chalk at home if you come here.
Getting ThereBielefeld is the most central city for this large region. The ridge runs around Rheine in the north-west to Detmold in the south-east.
This is one of the famous sites where the Germans pushed back the Romans. In the Teutoburger Forest, the Romans couldn't use their effective battle formations that they were so famous for. Here you can read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Teutoburg_Forest
