Rock Solid in Germany

By Linda Tancs

Germany’s Teutoburg Forest is connected to one of the most famous battles in ancient history, that between German tribes (the victors) and three Roman legions in A.D. 9. Nowadays it’s perhaps better known for a rock formation, Externsteine, comprising five enormous sandstone rock pillars near Horn-Bad Meinberg. Entry to the site is free; the closest train station is Paderborn Central Station.
