Discover the Weser Uplands!

Our Hostel makes an ideal base for guests planning extensive journeys of discovery in the magnificent natural surroundings of the Weser Uplands. What's more, you'll find numerous attractions right on your doorstep, including Bückeburg Castle - complete with mausoleum - and the Helicopter Museum.

Nature and culture:

Sports enthusiasts will really get their money's worth in Porta Westfalica: Cyclists can get pedalling along the Weser Cycle Route, the "Mill Route", the "LandArt Route" or the "Wellness Route", while hikers can scale the lush green heights of the Wiehen and Weser Hills and water babies - young and old! - can go for a relaxing dip at "Großer Weserbogen", a huge bathing and leisure complex. Porta Westfalica's swimming pool centre also has an attractive range of indoor and outdoor pools. Boat and lock rides at Minden Aqueduct are also fantastically fun. Should the weather disappoint, there are a great many attractions that will keep you nice and dry. For example, why not visit "Kleinenbremen" visitors' mine, the 142-metre TV tower - providing breathtaking panoramic views - or even the town's four historic windmills and watermills? And don't forget the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial. Making time to see this landmark of Porta Westfalica is a must for anyone who visits the town.
