Herman the German was the name our kids gave to this place. Wonderful place to visit, lovely grounds and the monument is really good. Only thing to spoil the day, was a wasp sting, but I can not blame Herman for that!!

Very nice statue, but you can climb only until half of the monument. The view is amazing, but make sure, you will have good visibility.

Very nice monument and clean park. LIttle long walk for older people to get to see the monument. Also you must pay for parking in a machine near the parking lot before you leave as you cant pay at the exit like a normal exit.

What a monument, in teutonberger wald, the land of Herman the German, much loved and revered by staunch supporters of Germany's stand against the invading Romans. Impressive and thrilling.

Easy access, great parking, as well as historical information as to the reasons the Roman Empire was stopped dead in its tracks in the Teuteburger Forest by a bunch of Germanic tribes.

Definately worth a visit. Great views from lookout for a few Euros. Also a great treetops adventure for any thrillseekers in the family with food and drink aplenty.

This is what we called him when I was stationed here at Hobart Barracks. The Romans were finally defeated here in the forest. Amazing views
