Hello, I'm Paderborn!
Glad you are here.
When my guests find out what I have to tell, they are amazed! Westpahlians doesn’t like to talk, eh? Blah blah blah, that certainly doesn't apply to me! How else are people supposed to find out which magnificent building is waiting for them here or where my most beautiful half-timbered street is? Or, perhaps why is graffiti a big topic for me? And why am I even named Paderborn? I'm happy to tell you, because it kind of just bubbles out of me. And even if I am only the second largest city in the Teutoburg Forest, you will certainly not miss out here. I promise!
How would I describe myself? Soulful.
Four kilometres. Yes, you heard me right! My river, the Pader, is four kilometres long. “Small but mighty” is what I say. The springs are bubbling up like almost nowhere else in Germany. It literally makes me what I am. Winding its way, back and forth through my townscape, providing me and my guests with a number of cozy places. Here, you can only feel good - I'll tell you, honestly! But I would also like to introduce you to my cultural treasures, which are not only pretty to look at from the outside. And, of course, this one particularly colourful wall should not be missing. When we are done with our stroll through the city, you should pay a visit to my surroundings.
