Through the Lipper Bergland, this stage continues to go up and down frequently. The start is at Steinberg (396m), where a rocket station was located during the Cold War. From the foundations you have a great view of the surrounding countryside. The path now leads back downhill to the picturesque Hillentrup. The next two mountains to be climbed are the former rampart Amelungsburg and the local mountain of Lemgo, the Windelstein. Between the two peaks, the Maibolte has cut deeply into the mountainous landscape. Past an old lookout tower you finally reach the city of Lemgo. Here you leave the Hansaweg (X9) and from the ramparts of the old town you follow the Cheruskerweg (X3) to the Hermannsdenkmal near Detmold.
Between Lemgo and Detmold three more mountain ranges are crossed (Biesterberg, Gretberg and Rotenberg) before the E1 leads the hiker somewhat unattractive on a long arterial road to the worth seeing old town of Detmold.

LWL-Open-Air Museum Detmold
The LWL open-air museum is located in the immediate vicinity of the E1 and displays more than 100 historical buildings on an area of 90 hectares. The buildings have been dismantled at their original location and rebuilt as faithfully as possible in the open-air museum. In addition, historical cultural landscapes, plant and animal species are shown and maintained.
There is a lot to see and the area is extensive. Ideal for a rest day or a day trip.
