Brakel Sieben auf einen Streich
Published: 02/02/2019
This route was made by Kulturland Kreis Höxter Tourismus.

You leave from Brakel and drive to historic Höxter. After this you drive uphill and downhill between Eilversen and Bremerberg to the top of the Köterberg. From the highest point of the region you have a beautiful panoramic view. The tour continues through the former Falkenhagen monastery to the half-timbered town of Lügde. You will also drive over the Ottenstein highlands, which also offer a beautiful view of the Weserbergland. The tour then continues through the hilly Extertal in the direction of Lemgo. In this historic Hanseatic city you will find a medieval city center with richly decorated stone and half-timbered houses.

From the historic city center of Blomberg with its beautiful half-timbered houses, it is only a short distance until you reach the city of Schieder-Schwalenberg. This idyllic town of Schwalenberg preaches with its historic half-timbered houses on the Burgberg. Finally, you drive through the Hügel landscape to Nieheim, a city for true connoisseurs. It is also worth stopping at the Sack Museum. Here everything revolves around "old bags".

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.
