Founded in 1214 by Count Hermann IV of Ravensberg, Bielefeld is now known as the Ostwestfalen-Lippe Region of Germany. Located just north of a pass between a couple hills leading to the Teutoburg Forest. Originally the city was established to safeguard the pass. However, Bielefeld is more renowned for its history in linen fabrication. Today this city offers a charming blend of modern amenities within the stately old stone buildings which make up its historic quarter. The best way to see the city and the surrounding countryside with a car hire in Bielefeld.
Walk through the Alter Markt (Old Market Square), the heart of the city, and marvel at the beautifully preserved architecture of these buildings which date back to the 16th century. Many of Bielefeld's notable monuments are located close by, such as Nicolai Church and Ravensberg Spinning Mill. A short drive from the Alter Markt to the top of Sparrenburg Hill will not only provide the best views of the city, but it will also lead up to the Sparrenburg Castle. The castle was constructed in the 13th century by the counts of Ravensberg.
