Of course there is more to see in Detmold, most important is the Hermann Monument.
To give you an idea, the monument is 54 metres high and was build between 1838 - 1875. It was the dream of the sculptor Ernst von Bandel, to build a monument for the Cherusian Prince Arminius. Leader of the germanic tribes against the Romans. At that time (1838) they thought the german name of the leader was Hermann. Now it's still called "The Hermann".
It was just a short visit, rain and cold wind blowing around the hill top.
Well we gave all our coins to the ferryman yesterday, because at the first call we disturbed him eating his soup and the second time he was just drinking his coffee. So two times he had to hurry.
Then a nice german lady gave us a parkingticket for an hour, because her shopping was a little bit shorter then she expected. When Rob was laying the the ticket behind the window there was a windblow, and gone was our ticket, we couldn't find it anymore.
So in the end I bought the cheapest cookie 40 eurocent to get some coins.
Tomorrow it's back home, wednesday holidays are over.
