Detmold is a small town, administrative center of the Lippe district. The castle on an island in the center of the town was first mentioned in 1366. Some walls have survived from that time.

In 1447 the town and the castle were plundered by Bohemian mercenaries. After that a moat appeared and the walls were reinforced. After several years, a local count Bernhard VII made the castle his residence. In 1549 his successor, Bernhard VIII, invited the architect who had built a number of Renaissance buildings in the Weser region. Detmold castle was rebuilt and became a bit like the Neuhaus Castle in Paderborn. In the German Wikipedia you can see how the castle looked like in 1633.

Detmold itself is a very nice town. There's an old town where you can find about 600 original and restored historical buildings. However, on Saturdays it is quite crowded because of the market. We found a beautiful street called the Alley with many nice houses that resemble embassy buildings. It doesn't belong to the tourist attractions, but looks amazing in autumn. The most beautiful houses are in the end the street.

Not far from Detmold is a huge Hermann monument, the main attraction of the town. There's also a Skansen, open air museum.
