Founded well over a thousand years ago by Charlemagne, Paderborn is a city that’s absolutely steeped in history. Gothic cathedrals, wood timbered buildings, and a Nazi castle in the nearby town of Boren mean there’s something to interest every type of history buff. There is also plenty to keep sports fans occupied. Paderborn is one of the top spots in Germany for American sport: the city has its own baseball, basketball, and American football teams. There’s even something for nature lovers: the beautiful Lippesee lake is well within striking distance, offering hiking, watersports, and sunbathing.
