Guided tour of the Emperor Wilhelm Monument
Let us take you on a journey through time - when the river Weser broke through the mountains and the monument of Emperor Wilhelm was erected to "strengthen the nation". The most important landmark of northern East Westphalia welcomes you with a panoramic view over Minden and the Porta Westfalica. A 20-minute drive from Minden's city center and 268 meters above sea level, the monument is situated on the Wittekindsberg. The redesigned visitor center invites you to explore the natural and cultural history of the Porta interactively after your tour.
Duration: approx. 1 hour for the tour and 30 minutes for the visitor center
