Our spacious apartment is in a historical house from 1889. It has been a 3 apartment house but we combined two apartments and renovated and modernized it completely so that you have a modern, bright and 145 square metres big apartment in the heart of the 70 000 inhabitants, historical city of Detmold. We conserved the historic charm with the 3,4 m high ceilings and the old doors. The kitchen is well equipped and the bath-room is modern and full of light. The garden and the porch are cozy as well. There is a little self-build hut for your children. The beautiful „Mühlendamm“ behind the garden offers an extension for your children to play. Our girls love to ride their bikes and scooter or roller-blades and skateboards there. On the little channel behind the house you can see ducks, kingfisher white admirals and many other birds and bees and butterflies. There is also the neighbors cat who likes to visit our garden. The whole house is flooded with light and even though its in the heart of the city, it is really calm and peaceful. You will find a lot of spaces to chill, read and relax. When it is cold outside you can light up a fire in our little wood burning stove. You find three bedrooms (two for our children and one master bed room). The children bed-room has a 140x200cm wide bed and the other room has a 90x200cm, but there is a little snoozle corner with three more mattresses. The master bed is 180x200 cm bed. There are at least four bikes you can use during your stay and you can explore the beautiful nature in the „Teutoburger Wald“ (a low mountain range just next to your doorstep). The street where we live in is a historical one with old and beautiful historical buildings.

Next to our house (around 30 metres) is an organic supermarket with a little cafe/ bakery inside. But as the house lays in the city heart you find a lot of grocery-stores, bakeries, restaurants and three times a week even a wonderful market just around the corner. So you find everything for your daily life easily nearby. A car is not needed. The train station is also only 400 metres away. Detmold is an historical city with old buildings and two castles. It has a vivid cultural life. It has two universities, one for music and one for architecture. It has a nice pedestrian precinct with good shopping opportunities. In the summer-time (and in Covid-free times) there are a lot of cultural events. It has a theatre, a street-dance and a street-theatre festival, open-air concerts (for free) on the historical market-place. An open-air cinema next to the famous statue of Arminius (Hermansdenkmal) directly in the forest. Next to the „Hermansdenkmal“ is a climbing-park. You can play soccer-golf next to the little airport (only for glider pilots). You can go horse-riding in the countryside. Detmold is known for the Freilichtmuseum (open-air exhibition) which is the biggest in Germany and where you can explore the life in former times with old farm-houses. But you can also have a picnic with the bakery produces of the historic bakery. The highlight in and around Detmold is the nature. The little rivers, the hills, the forests. There are so many hiking-paths, bike-trails and natural monuments. You can spend your days also in the „Adlerwarte“ (parc with eagles) and in the bird-parc. Both are not only perfect for children. Around Detmold are many public swimming-pools in the nature. The town of Lemgo is also nice to visit because it‘s historic, too and as a former member of the Hanseatic League it offers you another interesting historic aspect. The industrial city of Bielefeld with it‘s 350 000 inhabitants offers you a lot more opportunities and is only a 30 kilometers ride away. In 25 kilometers you find the Schieder-See (a lake) next to a castle. There you can go for walk, do pony-riding with your children or you can explore the lake via a pedal boat. If you want to spend active or calm, family or couple, urban or close to nature-holidays, you are always right in Detmold and its surroundings.
