Erinnerungstreffen Landtagswahl Lippe-Detmold January 1933
On January 14, 1934 Hitler held a speech at a ceremony to remember the elections of 1933 in Lippe-Detmold.
Schloss Buddenberg (5)
Location: Schloßallee, the river Lippe runs around the west-, south- and east-side of the castle grounds.
Today: The castle was taken down in 1977; a hedge marks the exact spot where the castle was.
On June 29, 1934, the day before the Röhm-putsch, Hitler was at the castle Buddenberg in Lünen. There is a picture of him there, but it’s not possible to show that picture here yet.

1926 visit - Hermannsdenkmal (20)
Location: Near Detmold, at the end of the Hermannsweg
Today: Still there
Because Adolf Hitler sent a postcard from Detmold and Paderborn to Maria Reiter (that was written or arrived on November 25, 1926) he must have been in the area of Detmold and Paderborn in the period before November 25. What he was doing in the region is not entirely clear to me yet. If you know more about this visit, please send an e-mail.
An entry in the guestbook of the Grotenburg mountain near Detmold might prove he was in the area. It seems like he visited the Hermannsdenkmal on the mountain in November 25, 1926. Historian Ian Kershaw mentions the Hermannsdenkmal as a symbol of the myth of the German Reich.

Nordrhein-Westfalen has a lot of places that are interesting to visit. On this page you’ll for instance find the Felsennest, the Ordensburg Vogelsang and the Hermannsdenkmal.
