Soon you take the A67 towards Germany. In Germany we stop the 1st time to drink coffee and some food at the McDonalds in Lippetal and we also refuel with the neighbors right away. Then again a small piece of highway and then drive inside to Salzgitter in the Harz.
After leaving the motorway, the curves increase and the surroundings become more hill and woody. Soon we drive through the military training ground "Sennelager". We drive through the Teutoburg Forest and pass the "Externsteine". A very beautiful rock formation which is worth a break.
We drive through the Naturpark Eggegebirge and the brown signs along the road indicate that you are driving on Deutsche Allee Straße. Beautiful roads with beautiful views as a result! The hills have now also become higher, which contributes to the beautiful views. Also on half-timbered houses, castles and castles no shortage on the road, unfortunately we can not take a picture of everything.
We drive through the Weserbergland and drive to the highest point of this region: the Köterberg. Here we take a sausage sandwich with coffee and we take some pictures. Even on the yellow road signs the Köterberg is signposted with an engine sign behind the name. Of course, the route lends itself here for fun steering.
Along the river Weser, we go up the hill on the left to take up only 12 hairpin bends. You have a beautiful view of the Weser and the valley.

The Externsteine are a sandstone formation in the Teutoburg Forest in Germany, near Detmold. The formation consists of a few long stones that rise out of the hilly landscape abruptly. The stones are made of sandstone and originated in the Cretaceous period, about 120 million years ago. The Externsteine count as an attraction in North Rhine-Westphalia and also as a breeding ground for a riddle. This is because traces of human use from the Middle Ages, possibly from prehistoric times, have been found.

Köterberg is a town in the German municipality of Lügde, North Rhine-Westphalia, and has 81 inhabitants (2005). The village lies at the foot of the hill of the same name, which at 495.8 meters is the highest point of the Kreis Lippeis. The Köterberg is also the highest hill of the Kreis Lippe, which includes the municipality of Lügde. From the village runs a short but steep road with a gradient of 14% to the top of the Köterberg. At the top of the Köterberg, a 100-meter-high telecommunication tower has been standing since 1971, visible from the wide periphery. From the top of the Köterberg you have a largely unobstructed view of the surroundings. In clear weather, the Harz Mountains and the Brocken Mountain are visible to the east, to the west the Teutoburger Forest. At the top there is also the restaurant Köterberghaus. The summit of the Köterberg is in the summer months a very famous meeting place for motorcyclists from the area. On beautiful summer days the mountain is visited by hundreds of motorcyclists, which often leads to nuisance and irritation for the villagers. (Source: Wikipedia).

About this region
Dutch people (Dutch: Nederlanders) or the Dutch are a Germanic ethnic group native to the Netherlands. They share a common culture and speak the Dutch language. Dutch people and their descendants are found in migrant communities worldwide, notably in Aruba, Suriname, Guyana, Curaçao, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, and the United States. The Low Countries were situated around the border of France and the Holy Roman Empire, forming a part of their respective peripheries, and the various territories of which they consisted had become virtually autonomous by the 13th century. Under the Habsburgs, the Netherlands were organised into a single administrative unit, and in the 16th and 17th centuries the Northern Netherlands gained independence from Spain as the Dutch Republic. The high degree of urbanization characteristic of Dutch society was attained at a relatively early date. During the Republic the first series of large-scale Dutch migrations outside of Europe took place. The Dutch have left behind a substantial legacy despite the limited size of their country. The Dutch people are generally seen as the pioneers of capitalism, and their emphasis on a modern economy, secularism, and a free market ultimately had a huge influence on the great powers of the West, especially the British Empire, its Thirteen Colonies, and ultimately the United States.The traditional arts and culture of the Dutch encompasses various forms of traditional music, dances, architectural styles and clothing, some of which are globally recognizable. Internationally, Dutch painters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer and Van Gogh are held in high regard. The dominant religion of the Dutch was Christianity (both Catholic and Protestant), although in modern times the majority are no longer religious. Significant percentages of the Dutch are adherents of humanism, agnosticism, atheism or individual spirituality.
