Blomberg

Blomberg
A Saxonian settlement had probably existed here since the 6th century, but the town of Blomberg was founded around 1240 by Bernhard III. zur Lippe, the ruling lord of the Principality of Lippe. His grandson Simon I. zur Lippe built a castle as his residency and fortified Blomberg.

Blomberg has still a lot of nice half-timbered houses from the 16th and 17th century. The colourful carvings of these houses display the wealthiness of the owners. A grotesque like this one is called "Neidkopf" in German - envy-head.
