Travel Tips for Paderborn
Like I said, we stayed at...
Like I said, we stayed at Gehrden almost every year for about a week. Usually in autumn. Walking through the woods, the beautiful colouring of the leaves, wonderful smel of autumn, sometimes some deer. Walking in and around Gehrden, Willebadessen, Dringenberg, Bad Driburg and many places more(I sure hope I spelled everything correctly). Nostalgia for sure.
Former Jesuit University
The citizens of Paderborn showed interest in the reformation but the protestant era did not last long. The bishop soon called the Jesuit order to promote the counter-reformation and lead his ‘sheep’ back to the Roman Catholic faith.
The Jesuits built their convent and church in the heart of the town next to the city hall. They opened, on behalf of the Bishop, a high school and college in 1580. The old university buildings next to the church with their big tower are still used by a high school and by the university’s faculty of theology.
As a child I lived here on the British army base and attended an army school. Paderborn is a university town and has so much to offer tourists. The city center alone has 20 historical buildings, for instance - The Kaiserpfalz where in 777 Karl the great founded the beginnings of Paderborn.
